I don't mind either you posting either.

It doesn't actually bother me when I'm talking to the person face to face, but when I see it in writing or on clothing or on quotes, it makes me cringe. And this particular quote has been used on our stillbirth board siggies and blinkies, so it really was like a slap in the face when I saw it.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog
