Like poking a bruise...

...but I guess bruises on your soul don't fade.

A family member sent me this article from the NYT written by the father of a baby who died in utero, I suppose in solidarity, or maybe to say "I finally get how you've been feeling all these years."

It is a very powerful and moving story, but given the fact that there were tears trickling down my chest by the time I got to the end (you'll see why), I guess I wasn't ready for it.

Thank you for sharing. Not just this story but trusting us with your own loss. God bless you.

That was so sad. I keep very little from my M/Cs, too painful. Even reading this brought back all those memories. I keep you in my prayers.
