When Bug walked in from school yesterday I could tell she was upset about something. I asked her what was wrong and she said her math teacher's babies had died. She had gone in for a regular checkup and they couldn't hear the heartbeats.
Twin girls that were due in a few short weeks.
Bug already knew their names.
All the kids in Bug's grade made cards for her, so I hope that will ease her pain somewhat. The support of the students, faculty and parents might help just a miniscule amount.
She was J-man's teacher in the same grade, and was pregnant with her first child at that time. I cannot fathom the depth of sadness that this sweet woman is going through. I don't know what to think or say or feel.
Sorry for such a downer... had to get it out. Happier posts to come soon.
