Today is my son's due date.

I'm doing better than I thought I would. But I'm sad.

I'm not thinking so much about the what ifs or if onlys or what might have beens. I'm just sad for what isn't.

The baby that isn't being born today.

The belly that isn't big and round anymore.

The crib that isn't being used.

The books that aren't being read.

I'm sad for the life that came and went too early.

I wish I could come up with the word to say, but after starting and stopping literally a dozen times, I will stick with a simple "I am sorry!" I know it does not convey exactly what I want to say, but it is honest and sincere. I am sorry!

So sorry your son isn't's just so wrong and unfair. Sending lots of hugs your way....xoxo

I'm sorry I'm late to this. I hope you son's due date passed as peacefully as it could. Sad for all those 'what isn't's right along with you.
