I have no reviews today.
Instead, I must take time to say goodbye to a baby that we never got to know.
Three months in the womb, and poof, it's gone. Boy? Girl? We don't know. But
somehow we got to love it as much as if we had interacted with it for even
longer than that. How can you get so close to one that you haven't met? If I
ever had any doubts as to when a baby becomes a person, I have none now. I had
no idea that I would break down so much when we finally found out for sure. My
wife knew, as mothers do, and we had started mentally preparing ourselves. But
that doesn't eliminate the little spark of hope that we might be wrong. How I
wish we had been wrong! Goodbye, little one. A big, very teary goodbye. We never
knew you, but we miss you all the same.
