I guess I am in one of "those times" right now. I was with someone today who introduced one of my kiddos to a friend and said I have 4 other ones like this one. I admit, I sucked my breath in, held my tears and kept my mouth shut as I know this person is from a different generation and didn't mean to hurt me by ignoring Noah.
But truth is, they forgot Noah. Not the first time someone has, and probably not the last. :(
This pains me to my core. Generational difference or not, it's very painful when people say I have 5 kids when in fact, my body shows I have 6 kids (yes, all those stretch marks and things out of place prove Noah's life along with my other kiddos).
I am heartbroken.
It doesn't matter whether it's been 2 months, 2 years or 20 years. If you ignore my son, it hurts all of us. And many people ignore my precious son. I'm sorry if my son whom died makes you feel uncomfortable acknowledging him. I only wish that being uncomfortable was all I felt. But truth is, I/we feel unimaginable pain. Which we'll all feel until the day we die. Be glad you are only uncomfortable.
I have 6 kids.

This is a very good link to read. It talks about things I've shared, reminds me that I'm not alone. Thankful for someone speaking the words I've thought & felt.
