Quick update...

I did make a card for the girl at work who had the miscarriage, and gave it to someone to give to her because I wanted her to come to me IF she wanted to talk...within an hour she did come to my office. I told her "first things first~ let me give you a hug and tell you how sorry I am for the loss of your baby." She immediately started pouring out how lost she has felt since the miscarriage, and how difficult it has been to go through something without her husband to be with her. Could you even imagine? Her husband is in Iraq fighting for all of us during the time when she needs him the most...makes me even more grateful for the men and women in our armed service. The personal sacrifices that they make for us everyday is amazing...I can't even come up with a better word, actually.

We had a really good talk, and she thanked me for the card (thanks were not needed). We now have an open door policy for whenever she wants to talk about her loss, and who knows, it may be nice to have someone to talk to IRL about my loss. The circumstances for our loss are different, but we now have a unique bond.

I'm so glad you did this and it sounded like it was just what she needed. I met a fellow deadbaby mama today and plan to write a card out tonight. I'm glad you two have each other.
