A few thoughts.

Can you imagine what it would be like to carry a baby for nine months, and then soon after, all too soon, you're burying the child? You never got to experience their first birthday. You never got to teach them to ride a bicycle. You don’t get to see them off to their first day of school. There are so many firsts you never get to see.
I have a dear friend that experienced this which got me thinking about the situation. At one time, about 100 years ago, it was fairly common that you would lose a child but it isn't anymore. People really didn’t talk about it much in the past though. The idea of having children is one of a kind of continuation. It shows that life goes on. A parent shouldn't be outliving their children.

I've thought a lot about it lately. I get busy with writing duties, but still it’s been in the back of my mind. There’s a connection I feel with my kids and if it was severed in such a manner I'm pretty sure I would be pretty despondent. I really do empathize with RaeBeth Buda and do wish her and her husband all the best.
