About the Author
Dianna Vagianos Armentrout is a published writer, teacher, workshop facilitator and poetry therapist. She graduated from Adelphi University's Honors Program and earned her MAW from Manhattanville College. Dianna's pregnancy with her daughter, Mary Rose, who died an hour after birth of trisomy 18, changed her life completely. Her blog, Walking the Labyrinth of My Heart, was launched in April 2015 as a way of offering support to others going through pregnancies with difficult and fatal diagnoses. Dianna wishes to change the cultural fear of death and social awkwardness around the bereaved by educating others to be present and open to the natural process of death. Not knowing what to say is fine. Let's sit together quietly not knowing what to say about our most difficult and sacred losses, because a loving community is vital to the healing of the bereaved in our broken world. Dianna volunteers with Isaiah's Promise as a peer minister, and can't help sending "Healing Companion" cards to mothers facing pregnancy and newborn losses. She lives near the Great Dismal Swamp with her family, but has been feeling the call to go west. When she isn't writing or reading, she spends her time outdoors walking and gardening. Dianna also tinkers with recipes for paleo cookies and shares them with those around her. Contact Dianna at www.diannavagianos.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
