> I apologize to you (& others who may be reading) for going on & on about losing this baby. I can't seem to "get over it" they way some folks seem to think I should.
I just happened to wander over to the PB faith board and saw your posts - and I was struck by the above statement. No apologies necessary - I am upset by the fact that some folks seem to think you should be able to just "get over it." I have never had a child or lost a child, but losing a child is something I don't think one "gets over." Perhaps one day you will better be able to handle the grief, but in the meantime, post here as often as you need to, and go on and on about your baby as often as you need to. My mother had a miscarriage when I was four, and she still thinks about the baby she lost (she was 16 weeks pregnant). My grandmother also talks about her miscarriage - her second baby. She still wonders what that baby would have been like.
Your story has truly touched me and brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing. I wish you peace.
