All of us in the baby loss community know and understand that society views our situation as "taboo." If it weren't, we as mom's of angels would answer this question truthfully when asked by strangers, "How many children do you have?" Instead, we keep our real number of babies in our head, and give a forced smile with an answer that is socially acceptable.
There is no question, people don't like talking about death in general, but when you bring up the loss of an infant people get really quiet. No one knows what to do or say, they just sort of stare at you and try and fill the silence with anything that comes to mind. Well, frankly I am TIRED of it! This type of loss happens everyday, and it will continue to happen everyday because of this sinful world we live in! We can no longer sit in awkward silence, but get up and do something about it! We need this cause to be more socially acceptable to discuss, so we can make a difference!
