It's an age-old question for us bereaved parents: How many kids do I have? Unfortunately there is no right way to answer that. I know how I normally answer - I say I have three but one died at birth. But it's part of what I do, I talk to women everyday about loss.
What do I say to people who aren't affected by loss, are removed from the situation, who don't even care? But I care. I had three children and my greatest fear as a bereaved mom is that someone will forget that. How can I tactfully tell the world that, however?
