A friend of mine, in her early 40's, after years of miscarriages and treatments, finally pregnant with their beautiful son, at 37 weeks, delivered him stillborn this week.
The umbilical cord was too short. When he descended in the natural preparation for delivery, it detached from the placenta. That was it. He was perfect and healthy in every way, and yet tragically was taken before he had even breathed...
For me, I find solace in my Faith and my God. For my friends, who are not religious, I cannot imagine their grief.
Please pray that they will feel peace.
