“Wanna see a picture of my baby that died?” she said.

This is a post from a bloger that I follow, and who follows The Fountain. It is an interesting topic. I don’t yet find myself compelled to share my story as much as this young woman does, but I can certainly understand why she might need to. I still tend to keep it to myself around people that I don’t know, seriously, I don’t really want to bum them out.

The Infinite Fountain of Love and Loss flows unceasingly into the pool of memory and sorrow.
