You really shouldn't believe everything you read.  Whenever you know the real story you realize how inaccurate and full of lies "news" really is.

I'm sorry you're struggling with this.  Try to embrace the sadness and go through a little grieving process with this.  It's ok to feel sad, and it's also ok that you are moving on.  I gave birth to...
