I just heard word that one of the women I work with lost her baby over the weekend. She was born at 1.5 lbs, and was not strong enough to survive on her own, despite all the wonderful medical treatment available.

What do you do to comfort someone when something devestating like this happens?

unfortunately, i've kinda sorta "been there done that"... there's no magical words you can say to make it better... just be there when they need it.

when i lost my daughter, one of my best friends told me that "God hadn't found the perfect child for me yet"... at the time it didn;t make much sense. but now, having the 2 monsters i have, i know that they have the best guardian angel they can have, looking out for them. and although they make me buts, i believe that God really did find the perfect children for me...
