Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do

I hope I never have to bury my child.  I think it must be every parent’s worst nightmare.  I don’t think anything gets worse than having to face the death of your child.  It is so upside down to the nature of things. 

Along this road of infertility I have met women who have had chemical pregnancies, those who have had miscarriages (at various stages of their pregnancies) and those who got to hold their child for just a few moments and then had to say good bye.  No parent should ever have to go through that.  This is where I just cannot get over the injustice of the word, that good people should have to endure that pain. 

My in-laws lost their first baby.  She was born prem and dies only a few days old.  On the very rare occasion when my MIL has opened up to me about this, I can see that over 40 years later it haunts her.  It seems to be a sadness that doesn’t go away, a burden you carry forever.  A heartbreak that leaves a scar that never fades.

    This is why I am struggling so much with the death of my cousin. Although his death is awful and tragic, my heart is with his mum – my aunty – no one should ever have to bury their child.
