Thea’s clothes and baby things have been sitting in the basement for the past three years in the hopes that some sort of miracle pregnancy would happen.
Even now words fail me. I usually say "miscarriage", but it was in some ways much worse than that. I was so sick. At the time we didn't know why.
Sometimes, we do what we have to do to show any signs of regular life, not for others, but for ourselves. So be kind to others.
