Child Magazine interview

August 6, 2014

Nearly a year ago, we had an interview with Child Magazine. The article has only just been published – in the August 2014 edition. For those who are overseas and can’t get the magazine (and their website doesn’t appear to have the article linked, so that’s of no use), here is a scanned copy of the text. It’s a PDF, but has been photocopied a few times to reduce size to make it easier to print out. Hopefully the quality isn’t too poor to read once you enlarge it a bit.  Child Mag_BornSleeping interview

    I read the article while waiting in my doctors rooms for my two week check up after my termination of pregnancy. The article really touched my heart and gave me alot of insight into how to deal with this going forward. I was 4 months pregnant with my second child, my first one being only 8 months old. After receiving the results of our amniocenthesis, my husband and I made the difficult decision to terminate the pregnancy. As much as this was not a planned pregnancy, we still wanted this baby girl very much and having to give her up was the hardest decision of our lives. I had to deliver the baby. I was alone when I went into labour and I was alone when I gave birth. Our hospital experience was horrific and made this all even harder to deal with. We are trying to find peace but its very hard. We have had some counselling with our pastor and I am also trying to arrange some counselling for my husband and I through a service my company offers employees. But losing a baby really breaks you, no matter what the circumstance or how far along you were. Once you know theres a living being inside you, the emotional connection is instant. I felt my baby grow, I felt her move at only 14 weeks. Letting go of her was devastating and I will never be the same again. I dont understand what the reason was behind all of this but I have to believe that God had a purpose and a plan for my baby girl and even though I didnt get to meet her on earth, I will meet her someday in heaven.
