heartache

Thank you for all of the fantastic feedback on my last post (about how and when to tell family and friends about our adoption plans).  I want to follow up on many of your thoughts in another post, and I will do that soon.

Today, however, my heart is not in it. I learned last night that people I love very much have suffered a pregnancy loss. And my heart is aching for them. I would never wish the pain that goes along with this on anyone. I know it all too well.

I’m going to do what I can to support them, but I also know that I wanted to be left alone at times so I will try to be respectful of that. They need time to process and to grieve and to heal (emotionally and physically). I just wish they didn’t have to go through this.

    I don’t even have words. I think that is a very tragic thing to hear about, and is even more so when you personally know the pain.

    oh no. i’m so sorry for your friend. we had a really good friend lose her baby last week, after he was born… losing one at any time has got to be sooo difficult.

    Once you’ve been through it personally, you know how it is the most awful, horrible feeling in the world. Your poor friends.

    I also wanted to be left alone…I think I wanted the world to disappear…
