I have been attending a support group for women that have experienced perinatal loss. The women in the group have all experienced loss, situations similar to mine – they received a diagnosis of a fetal abnormality and chose to terminate their pregnancies. One of the things we talked about tonight was grief keeping, and memorializing our babies.
My husband and I actually visited the lighthouse two years ago, but never did I think I would be one of the parents buying a stone. I just love the island so much – the beaches, the atmosphere, the smells, the land, the feeling that I have when I am there. No fast food, no Dunkin’ Donuts. For the most part it is quaint and laid back. I feel relaxed, happy. I love Menemsha, Aquinnah (Gay Head), Edgartown. The carousel. I wanted to show it all to my baby. And I hoped that my baby would love it too.
