We are so very sorry for your loss. Some tragedies in life "make sense" in some way: the passing of someone who has lived a full life, or a life given in sacrifice to save another. This isn't one of those and we grieve with you not only for the loss itself, but for missing answers to "Why?". May you find peace in this most difficult of times.

I have four beautiful boys and between our 2nd and 3rd, we lost a baby early on in the pregnancy. To this, we regard to be a blessing, however the pain of losing a child was still very thick. We never felt our baby kick or move. There was no answer as to why; "the body does what the body does, sometimes," is all the doctors could tell us.

We still have our baby's one picture framed and it sits with the photos of all our boys. Our baby will always be our baby, though no breath was ever took and no kiss was ever given, she will always be our little guardian angel!

There are no answers, Abe. Don't seek them for it will only lead to let-down and sadness. Hold onto the one truth that you know of: that your baby will always be your baby and will always be there with you.
