Here is a trailer for Letters to My Unborn Children.

Resisting the Silence is a short film that discusses the miscarriages, Shawn’s decision to write about them, and the story behind the crocuses in the painting (which are also the website banner).

Shawn wrote a song called the Caim Prayer after he and Kristine had their third miscarriage.  He plays it here on tenor recorder.  You can also listen to a recording or read the score.

Radio Interviews

Kitchen Party Ceilidh is an Indianapolis radio show that plays great Celtic music.  The December 13, 2013 show includes an interview where Shawn discussed the role of music in processing his grief during miscarriages, and the role of Celtic music in particular. The segment includes “Song for Kim” by Nick and Anita Haigh – a song they wrote after their first miscarriage, and one that has become a personal favorite. Listen to the entire podcast for some great Celtic music. The segment on miscarriage starts about 40 minutes into the show.
