Crystal Theresa Z. Ejanda
Content Editor & Writer
Crystal is a mother of six: four deeply missed babies whom she carries in her heart and two wondrous living children who fill her with awe and delight and frustration (she knows how lucky she is to feel said frustration). Her path to Still Standing includes stillbirth, multiple miscarriages, infertility, rainbow babies, traumatic births, and the amazing bereaved families who welcomed, protected, and supported her since she joined the community in 2009.
Crystal loves her babies with a fierceness that’s emboldened her to be unapologetic in honoring what it means to grieve, mourn, and heal. Her children and the loss community inspire her to seek joy and to follow her passions. She currently attends a master of fine arts in writing program, works in marketing communications, and explores parenting, grief, spirituality, food, and semi-crunchy living.
