    He would have been my first grandchild....I'm struggling to cope with the loss, for myself, as well as my daughter, who is wrenched with guilt and despair...I don't know how to help us both. Is there anyone else going through this also? Thank you all...it seems like a nightmare that comes in waves and won't stop...

    You may wish to create an account and join us on the main boards as posts on this board are only seen by administrators and volunteers. I'm not sure if there are any current members in your situation, but we do have a large community of post abortion women who would be glad to connect with and support you (and your daughter, if she also chooses to join). It is really hard, but healing is possible, and we are here to help.

    I do hope both you and your daughter register for an account, hun. We have members of all ages and most situations, and we all understand.........and there's a dedicated board for Men, Family & Friends.

    My parents didn't talk about it with me and i wish they would have. I would try and keep an open safe place for your daughter and yourself to talk about it when it really starts to hurt. Time will heal. Don't focus on the could have Been. You both made the decision you believe to be right. Sometimes those decisions are the toughest we will ever make. Try and stay busy too! Hiking, gardening, games. Keep the brain busy so you can't dwell on it. Hoping that both of you stay strong through this.

    Unregistered, I hope you create an account and join us on the main boards, too. Time takes care of some of it, allowing ourselves to grieve our loss helps immeasurably...........and being able to talk freely and honestly in a safe place helps even more. (((hugs)))
