A is for ...




April Fool!


Married to the love of her life, having her dream job, beautiful friends and a happy life, she was living her life to the fullest, until the moment she realized that becoming a mom was not going to be easy for her. She firmly believed that only a child can complete a woman. So after years of treatment and prayers when the doctor and now a friend, said that she was pregnant, she felt alive again.

.......................

"Can I see my child?" .... gaining conscious from her sleep after delivery she asked the doctor. The doctor stood rooted to the ground without knowing how to tell her that the child she waited all these years turned out to be a stillborn... an April fool prank from the universe.

  18. Oh no, that is so SAD. It brings back memories of the baby I had that died while I was carrying it. I was 5 months along and one day...it just died inside me. I had to have it surgically removed and it was very traumatic. I hope I get to meet that baby someday in heaven. Lovely, moving story and a great way to start the A-Z ♥
