Sorry just isn’t enough..


I stare at her page.

Everyone says how sorry they are.

I want to say something. I need to say something. Anything.

I can’t.

The baby was early. Born, and died, at 21 weeks.

and all we can say is how sorry we are. It’s just not enough.

It wasn’t enough when G.L.’s son died at 18 from a drug overdose.

It wasn’t enough when J.B.’s sister died at 18 from spinal muscular atrophy.

A parent should never outlive their child. Ever.

Kristi, I am so terribly sorry for your loss, but sorry just isn’t enough.
