What?!? What the h-e-double hockey sticks is wrong with that woman? I am seriously fuming for you right now.
It sounds to me like she's not worthy of knowing your sweet babies anyways. How does DH react to that???
My in-laws are really pretty supportive. When we lost our 1st they didn't really say a whole lot about it. When we lost Sophie I really think it broke their hearts. That was probably the hardest part about how supportive they are. I kind of always feel like I have to make them feel better, along with trying to fix myself. But they really have been wonderful for the most part.
