October is National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. This post is written in honor of those precious little ones we grieve, including two of my own.
“So, do you have any kids?”
It’s an innocent question, a social norm about as common as the handshake. Yet for over two years, this question was one I dreaded anytime I would meet a new acquaintance or strike up a conversation with a stranger. How in the world should I answer?
Well, I have two in heaven I never got to meet… and a longing so deep that just you asking about children almost knocks the breath out of me.
“No…no, I don’t have any kids.”
