Today I went to the funeral of an infant boy. I know the mother, she works at an organization where I volunteer from time to time. She was 8 months pregnant and had preeclampsia. She was getting blood clots, and got one in the umbilical cord which cut off the oxygen supply to her son and he passed away. I just can’t even begin to understand the pain that the family is experiencing right now. My heart just breaks for them.
This is the second funeral of this type that I’ve attended in the past year and I hope I never have to attend another. No one should experience that kind of loss, no one should ever have to bury their child.
