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

Funny How Things Haunt You

I am sitting in my favorite coffeeshop as I type this, working on a book I am writing, about Ben.

As I started packing up to leave just now, a song came on the radio: "Life for Rent" by Dido.

That's the song I was listening to as I pulled into a parking space at the hospital the morning Ben died. The last song I listened to before I knew he was gone.

I haven't liked Dido since.

In 2008 the song I heard as I pulled into the hospital was by Leona Lewis "Better in Time". What a vivid memory.

A poignant song for a poignant moment. I'm so sorry.
