In August 2018, Melissa became a contributing author for the #1 bestselling book #BetterWoman, Better World.
In December 2018, Melissa compiled and published "Comfort for the Tears", another compilation of memoirs of pregnancy.
Her passion and dreams are to inspire people around the world and empower them to share their personal stories through writing.
Her mission for 2019 is for 100,000 bereaved parents and their families read Comfort for the Tears so they can feel supported through their grief and find hope on their journey through healing.
