A Grieving, Human Mother

I blamed myself when my daughter died seventeen years ago today (photo is age-progressed, a gift from my children that I hadn’t known I needed until they gave it to me last Christmas). I shouldn’t have planned a home birth. I was too old. I’d had too many problems in childbirth with other children. I felt something was wrong. I should have done something, anything! I should have saved her.
