And the funny thing is, I don't mourn the loss of the birth experience I lost. Not even a little bit. I can now fathom the pain of mourning the loss of your babies because I came so close to losing mine. And we have more than made up for any lost time.
I know everyone has to cry their own tears, process their own grief and experience thier own pain. I don't think what anyone is feeling is right or wrong, it just is. I just wanted to share my story because I felt like I was where many of you are after the birth of my first baby, but life has offered me a new experience and perspective and made me more able to cherish where I am and less likely to harbor regrets.
All of us make the best decisions we can with the information we have. I really believe that.
Peace, love and HUGS to all!
