Sad to hear that Tommy. Not a good day at all. I know there is no bright side to this, but one thing to remember is that it happened because your little one had some sort of condition that either his or your wife's body recognized was unrecoverable, so he passed peacefully. An alternative that was avoided was a difficult, possibly painful and likely short life of disability for the little one. Nature has a divinely appointed balance. I have a co-worker whose wife lost twins due to a serious complication during an earlier pregnancy. Now they are happy parents, so life ultimately overcomes. I'll join DSM and also say a prayer that you guys will find peace even though this difficult time.
Sorry to read about your loss. Been there, it's very painful and you'll start to doubt alot of things. My wife and I lost 3 in a row and almost gave up. (Minor surgery corrected the problem for her) Give it some time and jump back on the saddle when you n' the wife are ready. Please talk with your wife about it, it will be painful and hopeful at the same time. And as ThunderDan said, there is a reason why, you just may never find out what it is. (alot of prayer helps too)
The cure for me was when my son was born 5 years later!! (hopefully yours as well but much!!! sooner)
Tommy, I'm so sorry. That's terrible. I hope that you can work through this with your girlfriend in a way that will comfort you both. With time, you can mourn your son's loss, keep his memory, and carry on with your relationship. God willing, some day, you can try again and build your family once again.
She and I actually broke up a week ago. And after examining things, im starting to wonder if she actually aborted him? Im completely against abortion except in the times of the child having major birth defects that are detectable early on or if it endangers the mother's life. I don't have any solid grounds on this, just something that stuck out in my mind after I sat down and looked at everything. Either way, my little boy wont be going to shoot guns with me and hanging out and learning to be completely awesome like me, ha.
