    I came accross you blog through tonights words in a FB post from a HS friend. I am more grateful than I can express that the time was taken to share such intimate moments and the emotions through it all in such detail. Your words help me grieve my own loss. My ‘knowing’ my son was gone while his heart beat on was brief, 5 days. And I had 15 1/2 years with my son who was found down on the 9th of this month and heartbeat restored long enough for goodbyes and the gift of organ donation that was in our journey. Despite the differences for us the emotions described are all too familiar. Your words let tears that have been at the surface for two weeks and a day flow. I feel stronger and weaker at the same time. I would not wish this pain, the loss of a child, on anyone but at the same time there is comfort in knowing I am not alone. You are not alone. Our children are with us long before birth, and we are eternally connected. Thank you for sharing your son. My prayers are with you.

    We don’t even know you, but know that we’ve been praying for you. I know that doesn’t seem like a lot. I wish I could give you something physical – like a hug or just be able to take your pain away for a brief moment.

    I hope your birth went well and that you’re physically recovering quickly. I’m a thousand miles away, but let me know if you need anything or anyone to talk to. :)

    Much love, Alie
