6 x 6

1 | In a word, how would you characterize yourself before your loss, and then after?

Before: Naive After: Cynical

2 | How do you feel around pregnant women?

Bitter & resentful

3 | How do you answer the ‘how many children’ question?

Depends on who is asking. Usually with ‘Five living’ and I leave it at that if they don’t ask.

4 | How did you explain what happened to your lost baby to your living children? Or, if this was your first pregnancy, will you tell future children about your first?

With Raime, Ethan really was the only one who fully understood at the time. The boys were here when Elora died… and were old enough to understand. Lili though asked and still asks questions about it. Same with Connor.

5 | What would another pregnancy mean to you, and how would you get through it—or are you done with babymaking?

I am done.

6 | Imagine being able to step back in time and whisper into the ear of your past self the day after your baby died. What would you say?

This is tough. I don’t think any words ever make it better.
