Chronic Grief

Abstract

I first met Ann and Mark about two weeks after their daughter Heidi was born. They had brought her to the medical center (where I worked as a graduate student) from the hospital where she had been born. At birth she was slightly cyanotic and at four days of age was found to have cardiac abnormality.
