    Thank you for sharing.  I went through a miscarriage about three weeks ago and am still processing.  I can relate.  I too knew when the ultrasound didn’t look right (no heartbeat) and by the technician’s reaction.  I wish hope for the both of us!  ReplyCancel

    The miscarriage of my twin boys shattered my heart, then it reshaped my life. Miscarriage is a very complex, and at times misleading, word. It sounds like “boom”, pregnancy over. It doesn’t capture the agony of the decision making involved like D&C or Delivery, at the hospital or home or at Planned parenthood where the protesters hang out; what to do with the remains; am I a mother or not?; the abortion laws being enacted that impact and overlay many miscarriages. It has been 10 years now, and the grief is still something I experience, often unexpectedly. It is something that you don’t get over, you get through. and the length of that journey is unknown. Thank you for creating this project.ReplyCancel
