I Am a Father

It would be my child's first birthday some time in the next couple of weeks. Obviously we'll never know for sure when the date would've been but it's strange not to have a day to mark to passage of time.

Maybe we should just choose one arbitrarily. To help us remember.

I think picking a day sounds like a good idea, so you have the space reserved to honor and recognize your loss.
I can't decide whether remembering is good or not, so for the time being, I'm in denial.

Hugs you
@CheshireCatalyst You can still change your mind.
There aren't any rules for this sort of thing.

@SW-User I know, my wife has a name and I asked her recently to tell me it but she won't now because she wants to protect me from it. :/
@CheshireCatalyst Awwww.
I guess you've still got the option. (We both know you could find out if you decide you need to know.) x

I am sorry for what happened. You should do whatever feels right for you. And find a way to celebrate. Plant a tree. Have a small gathering. It is up to you.

I’m so sorry to hear about this. Picking a date would be a good idea. I hope you & your wife will be ok in the coming weeks. 💗
Choosing a day and a way to mark it would be a focus for your feelings and grief. I think it is a lovely idea xx

How about that last day. Like a rebirth.
How long has it been?

@SW-User the due date would've been late March early April 2017 but it never came to pass.
@CheshireCatalyst damn. Sure it’s an emotional time. Help each other through it.
