Grieving one daughter, and helping another grieve

Even grief sometimes has a purpose.

Learned that today when a colleague at work told me that he and his wife had decided to have an abortion at 16 weeks, after finding out the daughter they were carrying had so many birth defects, that it was doubtful that the pregnancy would come to term, and if it did, the kid would probably be a vegetable.

Been there, done that. And I was, out of the folks in the room, able to share some of my experience with simon.

Wow that is so sad. What a difficult decision to be faced with. So sorry to hear about this.
