To lose something so precious...

Today I read a beautiful and very moving piece of writing on another blog and it made me want to cry. When you read it you wondered who she was addressing, and it is only when you read the comments inside, that you discovered it was her firstborn child, a child she no longer has.

Sadly this blogger and I are not friends, so I cannot ask her the circumstances, but even if we were, would I dare? Sometimes it is rude to intrude on another's memories.

I, too, know what it is like to lose a child... although, in truth, I never did come to know that child, my firstborn. I said goodbye to him several days after he was born, as I was 19 at the time, and I had made the very difficult decision to allow him to be adopted. This year, my son, my firstborn - turned 18. I have no idea of where he is, what he is like, who he has grown to resemble, and there is a chance I shall never know these things.

To mark his coming of age, I wrote two poems about the experience earlier in year, Mother and son... and The Gift.

Fortunately, I have been blessed with another son, but as those of you who may have lost children of your own know, you never forget that child...

Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

My little ones were never born.

You never do forget them. Never.
