shocking news...

My mom read in the paper today that one of my long lost friends had baby girl #3 and the baby died at birth. How very very sad... I can't imagine. I am wondering if she was premature or something.... but I have no way of knowing what happened.

It's Cherie... for those of you who remember her....

I have seen her twice since our wedding 4-1/2 years ago. I had all kinds of trouble getting her to do things for our wedding and had to write her a letter snail mail to get her to order her dress!! She vanished after we got married and didn't return phone calls or answer emails. I was back in touch with her while I was PG with Valerie. She made a HUGE deal about us calling her to come to the hospital for her birth. Of course when the time came, she didn't show. In fact, she has N E V E R even seen Valerie. We emailed a few times while I was PG with Veronica. In her last message, she told me she was going to New Orleans (2 hours away) to see another friend's three week old baby. I live 20-30 minutes from her, and she has been "too busy" to come see Valerie who is almost three years old??? But when someone else has a baby, she has time to drive 2 hours to visit at the first chance... and couldn't come see us at all. So.... I didn't respond to her email. That was that.

Still... very sad to hear that happened. No one should ever experience that. I'm going to send her a card tomorrow.

    so sorry to hear about Cherie's loss .. I hope that she has the support to help her get through it.

    Like my friend told me last year when she lost her baby at birth ... "You never get over it, you just learn to get through it."
