Doris Dodson's Story

I lost my first child on January 1, 1973 at 5 months. I think it was a boy, but I think I'd gone into shock as I was bleeding profusely. No one would tell me anything though I begged to know. After it was over, everyone including my husband and parents acted like I had just been sick. They just ignored the fact I had a BABY. And I did HAVE a baby. I named him Corey in my heart since I think I overheard it was a boy. Sorry if that's too graphic.

Doris, I am so sorry for your loss. This seems to be a common story in our society in reaction to losing a child. Your story is stirring and is definitely not too graphic. Thank you for sharing and I am so glad you named him.
