Gotta ask why it matters if *others* acknowledge it, Sue. I had a miscarriage at almost 24 weeks along. It was the only male I'd have had. I named him even. Same name as you named yours. But I don't think of him as a lost child. I think of him as a lost pregnancy, a lost potential. Something that never was more than he was... a developing fetus. Minus his kidneys.<quoted text>
OK, so my son who was born dead at 16 weeks spontaneous abortion) was my child. Thank you for acknowledging that I did in fact have a child.
It doesn't matter to me if you agree with me or not or if I agree with you or not. What matters to me is that I bore and raised three lovely daughters. Life is for the living. Our dead remain forever loved and forever remembered.
