    So sorry for your loss. Many years ago, my own daughter was stillborn and my son grieved with us — I have to say it made him a better man for going through that experience (he was only 7) – when my subsequent son was born I was overjoyed that he was breathing & alive! I was not as concerned with his emotional response to being ‘the subsequent’ as I should have been. They are happily well adjusted (as can be expected) young men who have dealt with their loss in very different ways. My oldest, will be 29 & plans to include a picture of his stillborn sister at his upcoming wedding. My younger son honored the sister who came before him by getting a life sized tattoo version of her on his back…because his stillborn sister ‘ is always with him, and always has his back’. We all find our way to incorporate our loss in our lives…think of it as a tapestry woven from many different threads. May you be blessed on your journey….

      Thank you for your sweet words. It is interesting how they take the loss with them, regardless of birth order. You have a very healthy outlook!
