In 2009, my husband and I lost our first son, Isaac Cedar. He had catastrophic skeletal defects due to a genetic disorder called Ectrodactyly. I was 24 weeks pregnant and had a late-term abortion.
He was wanted badly, mourned deeply, and loved continuously. His life and death changed our lives and affected our family and friends. But none of us have ever regretted this choice.
I began blogging just to survive the agonizing months after Isaac’s death. I put this blog in hiatus after the birth of my healthy second son, but occasionally I still write here. I also regularly share my story to fight the hideous slander the Anti-Choice movement spews.
If you have lost a child yourself and are looking for support, I have a resources page.
