Every year, 26,000 babies are stillborn in America. In 2003, one of them was my son.

What I Really Want

I just want people to say his name.

(And yes, there are people in my house not saying his name today, and it hurts.)

I'm so sorry. I want that for you too. I can't imagine how that hurts.

Thinking of you and Ben.

I'll say it: Ben.

Ben. Ben. Ben. Ben. Ben.

I know it can never be said enough. I wish those around you could appreciate how important this is to you, Virginia.

Thinking of you. XO.

I don't think that's too much to ask. I know how much that hurts. People seem to think it helps to just ignore...it doesn't.

Ben.

You don't know me - I found your blog through Glow - but I am thinking of both of you and am saying Ben's name out loud: Ben.

It hurts to not say it or hear it. I know. I'm sorry, Virginia. Thinking of you & Ben.
