The Bookstore

 I went to the bookstore today......standing amongst hundreds of books about pregnancy and childbirth and how to parent your child and all of the topics in between. There was not ONE book on stillbirth. And I cried. And I am still fighting the tears. One of those dreaded unexpected moments in the life of a grieving mother. Just one more example of how the "Rest of the world" would rather ignore or pretend that our babies never were........ that something that ugly doesn't happen in normal life. One more slap to the face for the thousands of mothers who lie in a hospital every year and experience the miracle of childbirth without the miracle of life.

 And no one understands.....except those other mothers.
