To fathers who've lost a precious baby: I'm trying to put together information that will help other fathers and also to help us moms understand the many ways that you men and us grieve differently. It would mean a lot to me if you'd take time to answer the following questions and give me some insight into your inner self and real feelings about your loss.
I have a real heart for you fathers because you normally don't have anyone to turn to when you're hurting and most of the time, your wife is hurting so bad that she can't reach out to you in your pain. I want to thank you ahead of time for doing this for me. My husband and I have walked through 39 years since we lost our first two babies. There was no one there for us - no support group - no Internet - no one who had a clue how to help us. I don't want that to happen to anyone else. We held our grief in except to each other for 35 years. We've finally been able to bring it out in the open and grieve our precious son and only daughter. That's why we're trying to reach out to you. We were blessed to eventually have two sons and are now grandparents of four precious children. Please accept our deepest sympathy for your loss.
DO NOT USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS!!!!!!!
