Losing a child
A family member of mine just lost a child. A baby girl, she was one year's old. We knew this was coming, the doctor had told the family before the baby was born that there was something wrong. Yet it is still sad.
I think the hardest thing for me, is what to say, do for this family member? She lives in Texas we live in Virginia. Should I call? Is a donation to a charity in the name of the baby ok? I am so awful with these things. A good friend of mine, RedHeaded Rover, is fantastic with knowing just the right thing to say to comfort a person - I envy this skill of hers. She is the daughter of a minister, I need to insist she teach me.
Here I am, MashAllah with a healthy baby and my dear sister-in-law has lost her baby, will she even want to hear from me?? Sigh.
