This week I reflected on the readings of Death Without Weeping. I could not help but feel sadden and confused that for some adequate care is hard to find. We thankfully have so many medical advances in America that infant mortality is not as high compared to other parts of the world. For some women however, like what was observed in the book this week, have to deal with the loss of their child, which is sadly all too common.Being a mother myself with 2 kids, and 1 on the way, I cannot help but put myself in the shoes of the women in the book. How hard it would be to battle with one’s self with connectingto your infant when they are born because the chance of survival is slim. Hearing that women want smaller families and yet go on to have many children. This made me think, why would youtry for so many when your ideal family size was small. But I remembered something my grandmother had told me a few years ago, before my husband and I started to have children.
