Some of you may know that I was a huge soap opera fan for MANY YEARS!!! I watched All My Children, One Life To Live and General Hospital faithfully. I used to wait until my parents fell asleep… I would sneak into their bedroom and watch my soaps on the VCR that I had recorded that they had no idea I had recorded. I felt like I was apart of their stories. There are special moments from the soaps that I will never ever forget. Well when I read Kimberly McCullough’s (Robin Scorpio, General Hospital) blog today I knew that I had to share her story with my readers.
My heart was so full and then it broke. I had lost my baby girl. It was too much. I didn’t need to learn this lesson. I wasn’t interested. But I wasn’t in control. These things happen and no, I don’t believe they happen “for a reason.” I’m still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic. One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I’m having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again.
My thoughts and prayers are with her. That has to be rough to have a 22 week loss. If you visit her website you can see a pic of her belly. Her blog is here.
