Yesterday we buried our daughter. It was at the same cemetery with the same priest who said all the same things as he did when we buried our son in December. When we got to the grave site I realized that our daughter is buried in the row right above her brother. The markers line up perfectly. Just seeing both graves there was too much for me.
Going to two memorial services and burying two children in seven months time is more than anyone should have to endure and so I am saying right here, right now that I am not doing that again. I will not bury any more children.
I know this isn't something that I can control but it makes me feel better to say it as though I can.
Kelly, Mom to Christopher Shannon 9.27.06, Catherine Quinn 2.24.09, Trey Barton lost on 12.28.09, Therese Barton lost on 6.10.10, Joseph Sullivan 7.23.11, and our latest, Victoria Maren 11.15.12
Secondary infertility success with IVF, then two losses, one at 14 weeks and one at 10 weeks, then success with IUI and then just pure, crazy luck. Expecting our fifth in May as the result of a FET.
