A friend emailed me to tell me she'd miscarried. I am so devastated for her. I want to be with her, to bring her tea and cry with her and to do all the things I would want someone to do for me. I don't even know that she'd want those things. From here, all I can do is tell her how sad I am, how awful it is, and how much I love her.

Her loss is real and cruel. When we last talked she had just started to feel more confident about the pregnancy. Having experienced the loss of Ada's two uterus-mates, I have only a small glimpse of what my friend is feeling. My heart goes out to her and my tears fall.
