Today has been a rough day for me. Today is the birthday of my stillborn son, Jacob. He would be 16 today. I can’t help but think of all the things we would have been doing today. Things like going for his driving test. Celebrating 16 years. Denying that I am old enough to have a kid who drives. Somehow during the day it just added to the intensity of missing my Mom.
Today I am letting myself grieve.
I have lost two people in my life way too soon. And it makes me sad.
Happy birthday, Jacob. I will always love you, my son.
