Another women joins “the club” :)

Got this email today, I will let it speak for itself:

Hi Jaime,

It’s me again, that stranger that thinks about you. I wanted to let you know that once again you and Dave and Evan have been on my mind constantly the past three weeks. My dear sister had a full-term, stillborn baby son, Jasper, of her own on June 8. Knowing her (and mine, and my whole family’s) pain so close up is making me grieve for you again too, you and the other women (too damn many) that I know who have lost babies. 

It is such a deep and relentless sadness, and I am so sorry you have had a year and a half without your beautiful boy. It’s so unfair. 


Does it never end…..the heartbreak, the lives torn apart at the heart, the shattered worlds…
When oh when will the stillbirth monster be satiated. Sigh! My heart goes out to this poor mom and her son Jasper.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. your “club” sucks.

  2. That is SO sad, I hate hearing of someone else.

  3. Oh boy. 😦
    I’m so tired of this, aren’t you? It’s just not fair. I wish it could have ended with our babies. It all seems so pointless that it just doesn’t end. Why doesn’t it end?
    Why is it possibe to sculp asses out of thigh fat and impregnate women with 8 babies yet we can’t save babies????
    And you know March of Dimes never mentions stillbirth???
    What the hell is going on 😦 😦 😦

    • I know it’s terrible. I was going through stuff for a yard sale yesterday and found What to Expect When Your Expecting, so I though, ok let’s see what these folks had to say about stillbirth, didn’t remember seeing anything. Turns out the only thing about stillbirth mentioned is in the misscariage section and it’s in small print after an asterix in the footnotes.Terrible.
