Hello - cool chick, so sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved children, I too lost my two beautiful sons eleven weeks apart at the end of 2021. It is very very hard this particular journey and i hope that we can along with others on this site who have lost two or more children support each other. The encouragement and support of everyone here has been ahelp to me too.

Hi Jenna
It was bad enough losing one but to lose 2 devastating doesn’t even cut it I feel lost now that I’m not a mom anymore it would’ve been my eldest birthday this weekend it’s just so hard and unbelievable

So so sorry - I can tell you that the Compassionate Friend have a lending library and there is a book there written by a mother who is now childless . She is questioning her role now, I think you might get some comfort from it . It is a terrible place to be I know - sending you much love. I shall light a candle for you and your child on his birthdayxxxx

Thank you for you kind thoughts very much appreciated
