I lost my first baby in March 1997. It has been 15 years and the pain is still real. I still wonder "What if..." for not only that loss but my others as well. There isn't a day that goes by that they don't cross my mind. When I hear of other's pain whether it be a miscarriage, still birth or infant death, I feel the pain for them too. I want to make their hurt go away. I want to give them back their precious angel so they don't have to live with the pain I do. I don't always talk openly about my angels. There are days I want to be alone in my grief. There are days I'll be more than happy to share anything you want to know and anything you want to hear about. But, do not EVER make up a pregnancy or a stillbirth to gain sympathy from me. It will not work. That is just a slap in the face of any mother who has lost a pregnancy or baby.
Hundreds of people put in a lot of hard work and energy in making a day for our precious angels. Don't tarnish it by trying to gain sympathy for an angel that never existed. Don't mock the pain and agony that many women endure on a daily basis. I wouldn't wish pregnancy or infant loss on my worst enemy. So, don't pretend that you are if you aren't.
