When we had our miscarriage in August, we received lovely cards and flowers from my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, my best friend and her mother. I had no idea pregnancy loss cards existed until I stumbled across these on Reading My Tea Leaves. They just nail it. Truly.
I first discovered the shitty things people say after a death when my mom died. A well-meaning, albeit strange friend, wrote:
“Just remember: the first three letter of funeral are fun.”
Mind you, my mom died suddenly and without warning when I was 14. I didn’t say goodbye to her. I said goodbye to a cold corpse in a hospital. Fun, indeed.
Thank you, Dr. Jessica Zucker. Thank you.
