Somehow writing this down helps me deal with the loss of our infant daughter Megan Ashley Meadows. She was born stillborn on February 17, 1996 at 40 weeks gestation. Tests and autopsies never revealed any type of problem. We are very lucky that we have a beautiful 4 year old son (Taylor) who has certainly had his lifetime supply of hugs and kisses lately. I am still saddened each day by neighbors, co-workers etc.who are now enjoying their babies. We are trying to conceive again, but I would just like to know when the overwhelming "pain" goes away. I would enjoy hearing from anyone who has experienced this type of loss. Hopefully, I can validate the unbelievable saddness I feel.
