To my husband Vinz, I thank you for being dad to our kids, for giving me Sophie, and for choosing to love Pat and Justin as your own.
So what do you say to someone who has just suffered a miscarriage or infant loss? When you know someone who just lost a child, there's always this burning need to say something in order to comfort them. But a lot of times, even if you mean well, the words just don't come out right.
As parents, we try to raise our kids in an environment full of love, kindness and laughter. We teach them to be gentle and peace-loving, and tell them that fighting or hurting another person whether with action or words is unacceptable. And then they go out into the world and see this harsh reality-- that not all people are kind, or gentle, or peace-loving.
