Day 6: What Not to Say

 Day 6: What NOT to Say

A hospice nurse said this to us the day we brought Julia home from the hospital. 
All I wanted to do after we learned of Julia's diagnosis was to be able to bring her home and take care of her for as long as possible.  
I had 382 precious days to take care of her. 
And I'm thankful for each and every one of those days. 
So, no, it definitely would NOT have been better or easier to lose her right after birth.

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. This national observance month was established in 1988 by President Reagan.  This post is part of Carly Marie's "Capture Your Grief" 31 day photography project for Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month.
