My first child, Becca, was born in 1999 and passed 11 weeks later. I waited 10 years before I had my son Vinnie. All the time I get asked if he's my only child. That always put me betweena rock and a hard place. If I say yes then I feel like I'm denying my daughter but if I say no I have another then there's always the questions about her. Then if the ask how old she is and I tell them that she's passed I get the sympathy looks and the "O I'm so sorry" or they always feel like they did something wrong. I'm never really sure how to answer that question because in my heart I will always have an 11 week old baby but nobody can see her. How do I handle this situation without making anybody feel bad?
