My DH is a grave digger and today he’s burying a baby.
The mother had blood tests taken when she was 16 weeks pregnant and due to positive results she then went for an ultrasound scan where they saw the baby’s brain wasn’t developing properly and it had other complications. The parents made the agonising decision to terminate the pregnancy at 19 weeks.
It’s my poor DH’s birthday today and he’s burying a baby that is only 2 weeks further along than ours is today… it’s heartbreaking. He tells me that he can’t allow himself to compare other families situations to our own otherwise he wouldn’t be able to do his job.
He copes with these situations remarkably well, I love that he has the strength to help these poor families at the most difficult times in their lives.
DH I love you x
