Hello, I’m new here. I lost my husband of eight years unexpectedly in February. It was three weeks before the birth of our first child, a daughter. We tried for so long to have kids and it feels so unfair that this is how it ended. Each day I’m filled with intense heartache and pain, even as I get to know our baby. I wanted to be a mom for a long time and I love her, but she also reminds me of him and all our struggles. I wanted to be a parent WITH him. Now I am alone. It’s been a lot learning how to take care of a baby and grieve all at once.
