Okay, this has me upset beyond words, but I think what's worse is the posts about 'God having a plan" for this baby. Wow.

If this is what God is about, I am staying far, far away.

This broke my heart ...truly...

I can't even begin to imagine what it's like to experience the loss of a child. She'll be in my thoughts.

I understand where you're coming from re: God's plan. I'm not going to say a word anywhere near the PR about it though. You guys know exactly how I feel about religion, but it's difficult to harden my heart against it in this situation. If her faith gets her through the days to come, then good for her.

Sadly, I am not sure if she is the one who feels the religious aspect of it, but seems to be others push it in these situations.

I just know when I still had my faith and I almost lost my infant daughter (though almost can't come close to touching what this poor mother is going through) hearing about "God's will" was enough to turn it into the beginnings of the end of my faith in both mankind and religion.

Either way, it all sucks.

I cannot even imagine what she is going through right now. I think that is every mother's biggest fear. Man.....

I will just say how sad I feel.
Leaving religion out on this one...I always do when it comes to death.
My opinions always clash, and let's just say...there's a reason why this board is my 'home' (when I'm on JM!)
