Thank you for sharing your story. Does anyone have any suggestions on what we could say that would be more helpful?
@ellaumbrella I'm so sorry for your loss
This is similar to my experience and I completely understand the distrust of parents who say they don't know why. In my case I chose to let them back in my life when I became a mother. Not an easy choice, and I still struggle 12 years after letting them back in. Incidentally both my siblings have no contact at all. My parents definitely know why.
This is so lovely, reading it made me very happy. It's really important we have outlets to raise parenting issues, but it's equally important that we can raise parenting successes. We perhaps don't do enough of the later.
My sister is 10 months and 1 day older than me. And I'm a twin, so our mother gave birth to 3 babies in 10 months. Fun times!
