I've been so worried about what the next steps would be woderning if you'd have to deliver, if you'd meet your baby, what would happen next? I've been asking people about miscarriages have you had one? do you know anyone who has? what happened? how? why? My one friend's mother found out around five months that the baby had died, but had to carry until full term and the body naturally went into labor.Does having to meet with a funeral director help with your healing process? The law give such a seemingly arbitrary time limit from one option to another. Now that you write about this I do remember when we went for Sam's 2nd ultrasound that time up to Houston, there were concerns that some decision time was coming up. I think I was 18 weeks. I have a heavy heart, Jen. Thinking about/worrying about you like crazy. Love you, Jess

, First they came for the Jews and no one spoke up, then the gays and Gypsies and no one spoke up, then they came for me. My generation let my dhatugers generation down, we became complacent, and when that happens evil rears its head. Pat Becker
