Well, I knew the day would come when I run into someone that has no idea that Dominic passed away because nobody told them. I ran into a friend from HS that knew I was preggo again and I seen her alot when I was preggo. She got a new job and I ran into her at her new job.

She asked me "How are the babies?"

I was a little comfused since I knew her family knew about it.

I said, What??
She repeated.

Then I had to explain.

She thought I was joking. Why in the hell would anybody joke about their baby dieing?
I get that response alot I guess. When I called everyone while I was waiting for my C/s everyone I called thought I was joking. I guess me not bawling my eyes out sends up red flags in their heads.

The look on her face was horrific. I could tell she was horrified that she had asked and made me tell her. I told her that it was ok and she didn't know so she shouldn't feel bad. I got in my car and cried for a little while on the way to my parents house. God, I miss him.

I was interviewed for an article in the paper about Sarah Beth. The reporter asked, "How many children do you have?" Wow... a question that should be so easy suddenly isn't. My heart jumped to my throat and I didn't say anything for a minute.

I finally said, "I have two, but my son died before birth."

That was the first time I said that to anyone. My son died. I guess I've written it and heard it in my head a million times, but saying the words out loud impacted me like I never knew they would.

He felt horrible of course, but he included Bryan Luke in the article. I loved that. He is a part of our family, and that random reporter knew it just as we did.

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!
