My friends lost their baby…

My very best friends were due with a baby girl on 8/14 and I got a text on 8/15 that the baby died…I dont understand how something like that can happen…I have no words for them…I cannot even imagine the pain they are in right now…I want to be able to take that away but there is nothing I can do or anyone that will make this any better…I started to cry when I heard that…we just had a baby shower for her a couple of weeks ago and I was planning on having brunch with her this past sunday…I was hoping that the text would be about baby stats…I know that nothing in life is guaranteed but to lose a full term baby is just NOT FUCKING RIGHT!!!  They loved this baby before she was even here and now they have to say goodbye…life can be very cruel sometimes…I am going to send them a card since I dont want to be intrusive in this their time of grief…I am not religious but I know they are so I am going to go to a local church and see if I can get a prayer card to give to them…I love them both so much and my heart breaks for them…I think of her as a new angel

    I’m so sorry to hear this. One of my nephews was stillborn and I know how heartbreaking it is for the parents as well as those close to the parents. I think a card is a wonderful idea. My sister-in-law said that cards and flowers were very helpful during the time as they wanted to be alone but they found a lot of strength in hearing from those that loved them and their baby.

    Oh goodness I can’t even imagine the pain and anger with that. I am so sorry about this. I have a few friends that lost their babies due to SIDS, It has to be one of the hardest things to bury a child.

    Oh my goodness, I cannot even imagine what your friends are going through. That is so sad, and so heartbreaking. I’m sorry to hear this. I agree with infertileginger, that a card is a great idea to show support but allow them the privacy they need to grieve thier pain. Life can be so unfair. Being infertile is so difficult, but to lose a baby so far along just seems cruel 😦

    I’m so sorry to hear about your friends. This just breaks my heart. Praying for them to find peace and comfort in the days and years ahead. I know their angel baby will be with them everyday until they meet again.
