My friend Jen posted this on her Facebook tonight, and it made so much sense - a sense that only those who have lost a baby could understand.

"A miscarriage is a natural and common event. All told, probably more women have lost a child from this world than haven't. Most don't mention it, and they go on from day to day as if it hadn't happened, so people imagine a woman in this situation never really knew or loved what she had.

But ask her sometime: how old would your child be now? And she'll know." 

~ Barbara Kingsolver (Animal Dreams)

Do you remember?  I do - 3 years & 4 months, 3 years & 1 month, and 2 years & 4 months.

I remember all three of mine. It's especially hard when you know someone who gave birth to a child right when you should have. It's a forever reminder of how old your child would be.

What a beautiful thought.

Children are always alive for their mothers.
