It's ten years today since my beautiful friend lost her first and only (biological) baby.
Little Z was stillborn at around 36 weeks. I remember the day vividly. I had a phone call from a mutual friend and I pulled over my car - I still remember where - and sat and just cried and cried. She was a much longed-for baby, after years of infertility. It felt breathtakingly unfair.
I remember every detail of the funeral, too. Her parents were so brave and so heartbroken. So, so much love for this little person who was gone before she'd even had a chance to begin.
Today I texted my friends and, while we live in different towns and rarely see each other, I always try to remember this day. Today, though, I didn't have to try. I remembered.
Fly free forever, baby girl. Safe in God's arms x

I'm so sorry for your friends. The fact that you remember must be so heartening to them. Bless you.
