It's just strange

For 6 1/2 months I had a son. Now I don't.

It's just strange.

I don't know how it feels to not have your child anymore, I only know how it feels not to be pregnant anymore. I know how empty I felt when I miscarried, I can only imagine how empty you must feel without Caleb.

I found you through Amalah's ClubMom blog and felt so bad for your and your husband. It sounds like Caleb was a wonderful boy who put up a good fight, and he had amazing parents to take care of him. The child you carry now is truly blessed to come into such a loving family.

An honest and open post. You just spoke volumes to me. It comes in waves. I'm still here with a shoulder whenever you need it.

I just wish I could take your pain away. It makes me sad also.

I can't even imagine the agony of having such an experience. It just seems wrong and cruel that any parent should outlive their child. He's still your son though, and you'll always be his mama. He's just doing more important things now, what with all those angel duties, but rest assured you will one day again be reunited.

i just wanted to say it was brave of you to come to the shower today...i can't imagine all the emotions you are sifting through...just want you to know that as soon as I saw you walk in I whispered up a prayer for you and will continue to do so. and i know that baby #2 will not replace Caleb... but will add another aspect of Joy to your life...you will always miss Caleb and wonder about him at each phase of life as your second miracle grows too...anyway maybe i've said to much already
