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

Grateful

Grateful for those who aren't afraid to say his name. (Ben.)

Grateful for those who try to understand that he is still my son, that I miss him every moment of every day. Grateful for those who realize I miss all the things that could have been. Grateful for those who understand you don't "move on" but you incorporate the grief into your life.

Grateful to those who aren't afraid to tell me they remember him and can only imagine how much it hurts.

Grateful that he is not, just yet, forgotten.

Ben. He isn't forgotten. Remembered, beloved and deeply missed.

So glad you have those in your life who aren't afraid to speak of him and who try to understand xo
