My friend and fellow baby lost mother experienced her fourth consecutive loss this week. Her gorgeous daughter, Anja, was stillborn January 2012. Prior to conceiving Anja, she suffered two back-to-back miscarriages.
Just weeks ago she discovered she was pregnant again; the fifth time (she is blessed with a precocious 3-year-old). And then, again, the symptoms started and she miscarried.
I am not a religious person. I don’t believe in a God or gods. But I do plead with the universe on occasion. This is most certainly one of those occasions. I am so sad, so mournful, so very angry that this family has lost their 4th baby in a row. It’s so wrong that one woman and one family could suffer such loss.
So I have been praying. Praying that they survive. Praying that they heal. Praying because I want so badly to be able to do something and I am powerless.
It’s just so effing wrong.
