My heart was beating out of my chest and my palms were sweating as I mentally prepared myself to tell my whole termination pregnancy loss story to a friend.
Even though I knew her, you never know how people will react to abortion, or to grief even. But when I told her and she said, "me too"... my jaw almost hit the ground.
It happens when we find each other online too:
"Me too," we whisper to each other...
"Me too," people message me...
"Me too," we say collectively, breathing a sigh of relief that we can finally talk about our grief and love for our babies with SOMEONE.
And what a relief it is to be able tell our stories and be seen.
