Faith & Family writer Susie Lloyd is seeking sources for an article she is writing for the magazine. She would like to profile Catholic families that have suffered tragic loss or have endured calamitous, life-altering events and come out the better for it in the end — with a more loving family, improved life perspective, and greater faith in God. If you have a story that meets these criteria and would be willing to share it for the benefit of others, please email her directly. Thank you!

If Mary or anyone else would like to take her up on her offer, please email me and I will forward her your information.
