Hi, I am new here...I just wanted to talk to others who can relate to having lost a child or children before having the opportunity to bring a child home. Our first son, Nathaniel, was born 12-9-05 with Diaphragmatic hernia which allowed his intestines to move up into the chest cavity and didn't allow space for his lungs to grow. We were grateful we had him here for 53 days, but my heart still aches for him. Now, God has blessed us with a healthy son and we're getting ready to celebrate his first birthday! :) I guess I'm just wondering if I will always have this sadness with every passing milestone that we get to have with Joseph that we didn't get to share with Nathaniel.
