This is not the announcement we thought we would make this week. This is an announcement of a devastating loss. A moment in which hopes, expectations and plans completely pivot.
Maxine Emma Rose did not make it into this world in the way we thought she would. And we are devastated, heart broken and every other word to describe grief. She will go on to help make a difference in the world for science and learning. A purpose felt the only way to find an ounce of closure. Thank you everyone that made this possible. What a labor of love.
Asher was so excited and ready to be a sibling and we hope we can open our home to a little one in the future, though it will look different than we expected. But it will be the right way for us I have to believe.
To be quiet about this loss feels like an injustice to her presence in my body as a part of this world, even for the 18.5 weeks we were together. To be quite perpetuates a stigma that is long outdated and hurtful.
Thank you for giving us space to heal during this impossible time.
Also my two year old keeps asking over and over and it’s gut wrenching every time. He also wants he dad and nothing to do with me. Also gut wrenching. This is the worst.
