If I meet someone new, and I am mentioning my kids, I usually say that I have 2 kids. I really have 3, but since Vincent is dead there are only 2 that can be seen. Sometimes I mention Vinny. But usually I don't, I don't like hearing the pity in peoples voices, or the endless questions. Sometimes I feel bad though. Vincent is just as much my kid as the other 2! Does this make me a bad mom? What do you gals do?

It's truly up to you what you do. I always include Calypso. No matter what. I tell people I have 3 kids 2 here 1 who passed away. When I don't include her I feel like I'm betraying her memory. When people feel sad it doesn't make me feel bad at all. If we want people to recognize and realize how common child loss is, we have to speak out

I always do. It feels disrespectful to me if I don't mention him. The pity in their eyes does break my heart, but I can't stand the guilt if I'm not completely honest.

I always do and always will include Isaac. He's my oldest son. Right now, I tell people I'm expecting my third little boy.

Thank you, Jessica/dettmer26, for my new siggy!
