Found a great quote last night

I found this great article/post last night while I was up unable to sleep-grr! It's really sweet and pretty much the only male-perspective story of miscarriage I have seen. I really just loved this quote at the end!

"When Mary was a few weeks along while pregnant with Macy, I was right in the middle of releasing a new book. I was so stinking proud; I even announced our pregnancy during a radio interview. I wanted the whole world to know. After we miscarried, I felt so stupid for not keeping my cards closer to my chest. What an idiot I had been. That’s what went through my mind.

It was my mother, actually, who wrote me a short note after the miscarriage that said, “You celebrated the start of a new soul, and you invited the world to celebrate with you. Never apologize for inviting people to see something of wonder and awe and profound beauty.”

I know alot of us ask ourselves why we told everyone "so soon" and if it's not your first loss, you feel like "I knew better than to be excited this time!" etc., etc. Everything about a miscarriage is horrible but having to go back and tell everyone you know what happened- For me, it was just the. worst. 

This quote made me think to myself; We were right to be happy and excited! And it's right to be sad now too. 

Heres the link if want to read the rest of this mans story. Its a bit long but worth the read. The comments are great too!
