Happy 2nd Birthday, Carter
I got into a conversation regarding abortion, with a friend, the other day. I have my own views on that matter, of which I will not get into, in this post. However, when this person told me, referring to someone else's new pregnancy, "It's not a baby, yet.", I burst into tears.
I calmly replied with, "I lost my pregnancy at just under 9 weeks...he was still my baby."
The conversation quickly ended, because I don't think they had a response to that.
Carter will always be my baby. I never got to hold him, or touch him or talk to him. I never got to hear his first cry, his first laugh, or to see him smile. But, he will always be mine.
One time, we'll all be together. Until then, I take comfort in the fact that he is in the arms of his Angel Grandma. I know that she is watching him. Holding him. Loving him...until I can take over.
