Our family ...

Our family, especially my cousin, is grieving the loss of her precious baby girl who was stillborn earlier this week. There is nothing like the feeling of not being able to fix something I so desperately want to fix. Her daughter was wanted and nurtured and her impending arrival was celebrated. As my cousin heads home with her arms empty and her heart hurting I ask you to please hold her and all those mothers with empty arms in your hearts, thoughts and prayers. It's going to be a long journey.

Oh my!!!! I am so so so so sorry to hear about this. I will be praying for your cousin. What a terrible tragedy!!!

My Aunt had identical twins and one the twins was still-born due to the cord strangling him in-utero. That was 50 years ago and she still grieves the loss. Noone will ever know the pain your cousin will have to endure losing her precious baby.

My deepest and most heart-felt sympathies to your cousin.

Much Love,

K
