You've hit the nail on the head...they won't understand until they've actually experienced it.
I'm sorry they are offended...actually, they're scared. We were too. Many still are.

It's so easy to assume that a pregnancy results in a bouncing baby in your arms....
We're proof to the contrary...proof that many people don't want to recognize.
Just like not saying anything after a loss because they don't know what to say...
As if "I'm sorry" never crossed their mind.

We angel mothers are just that...mothers whose children aren't with us.
Pictures are all we have...and unfortunately, many don't even have that.

So, while I understand their emotions regarding our children, they need to try to understand ours.
We will never have those precious birthday pictures, Halloween pictures, communion, first day of school...
The list goes on.

We have angel pictures. Period.
I thank God that I have that much!!!!

Thank you for your kindness and compassion regarding this issue.
If only those emotions were as easy to share!!!!

Always with love,
