When you lose a baby

A page I follow on Facebook linked to this today and it's really good. So I'm sharing it here. :)

I just found your blog link on sweetannas site (Annalise and I are good friends). My heart is breaking for your pain, and I want you to know that you're in my prayers.

But I also want to thank you. Thank you for having the courage and the words to share what you're going through. My husband and I lost our baby Skye at 13 weeks in July of 2011, and trying to grieve a baby we never met has been so hard. Such a strange journey that so many people around us didn't understand. Thank you for voicing that it's natural and beautiful to have such a fervent love for your baby as soon as you know he or she exists. And that you'll never get over or forget.

I don't know if that made sense, but your words have been ministering to my soul all morning, and I wanted to thank you.
