“I know this was posted a while ago, but I want to remember a couple I know from church. They just lost their (prematurely born) child yesterday morning. The woman has given prematurely twice before – including the one child that she does have that survived.
I’m very sorry for all of you who have had to go through this. For all I can see, it’s horrible and sometimes people don’t treat you like you lost a “real child”
I am also asking for advice from all of you who respond to this blog: I don’t know this couple horribly well – I speak with the family from time to time after church and at social events, but I’m not a close,
My question is, how should I respond/what should I say when I see them again?
I don’t want to pry into their personal business or make them more sad than they already are, but I feel like I should say something. Do I ask them how their doing the first time I see them, but not the second time? Do I keep asking each time? Do I act like nothing happened at some point?”
