Death of a Child

yes, that’s what happened.

But it didn’t just happen. We were strongly encouraged and made the decision to discontinue life support.

However, because of a long series of involved circumstances (and possibly not but if so we weren’t aware ahead of time) we had a chaplain involved. This led to not having to do this just in the hospital room but being able to do this in the chapel, which made for something very special and meaningful. I’m just not able to say much more right now but mainly wanted to post this to raise awareness of the hospital chaplains and things that are able to make happen beyond just coming into your room and being with you there.

I'm a transplant, born up north but raised in the middle, now I'm down here where you don't see too many snowflakes; I'll probably post just about as often (here at least)
