Life is unfair

Sometimes life is so unfair. For instance, my miscarriage was horrible. It's taking me what feels like a long time to get over it. But I know that it happens very often and you just don't hear about it until it happens to you. And I'm thankful that it happened when it did; meaning, that it didn't happen after the first trimester.

But today I received the terrible news that my friend's daughter lost her baby at 39 weeks. She was due to deliver any day now and when she went for a sonogram this morning, her baby had died. I have no words to describe the horror of it. And I feel terrible because here I was jealous and angry and upset that she's 19, unmarried, without a full time job, got pregnant by accident, etc. and it seemed unfair that I lost my baby and she was having one. And now her baby's dead.

I'm so sad for my friend and her daughter and everyone else that this death impacts. It's unimaginable.

I was so sorry to hear the tragic news. Our thoughts are with your friend and her family. Life can be so cruel sometimes.

I've heard of other stories like that and they break my heart every time. I can't imagine going through that. My hope for her is that since she is so young that her youthful resilience helps her get through this and go onto have a happy life.
