My Daughter Miscarried This Weekend

wilted flower

My daughter aged 20 has miscarried at 9 weeks this weekend.

Initially I was her rock and my own thoughts and feelings were never in my mind. However, 48 hours later I selfishly feel as though I have just been hit with a wrecking ball. Out of site from my daughter, I have turned into an emotional, blubbering wreck.

I cannot stop crying, both for the pain that my daughter is going through and I feel as though I am grieving. How can that be? I didn’t even know she was pregnant until she miscarried yet I feel as though I have lost something so very very precious.

Selfish or normal, I don’t know.
