In the last couple months, I have come across 3 heartbreaking stories in blogville of new moms dying shortly after their babies were born.
First, I came across this blog recently when I saw a link to a tutorial and clicked it only to find out the blogger had passed away just days before. Her baby was 14 days old.
Then, Jenners, my September Follower of the Month, posted this post about her friend. Her baby was just born.
And then tonight, I saw a post requesting prayers for this blogger, only to find out she, too, has passed away. Her baby was less than 1 week old.
As a bereaved mom, I can sympathize that they will not see their babies grow up. The difference is, their babies WILL grow up, just, not with them. I don't know any of these women but they all seem to be very loving women who wanted their babies as much as I wanted mine, and yet, they, too, can not be with their babies.
As a bereaved wife, I can sympathize for their husbands.
Sometimes, life is just too sad...
... and I wonder... what's the point?
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
