i belong to an underdeveloped country. i do love my home land. but i also confess that people are striving for basics there. in such environments when there is not plenty of food or clean water and air is polluted, its so hard for a women to seek support. i myself experienced PND after the birth of my first child there, not knowing that its a condition i use to blame myself for negative feeling and pressed them so hard that they became very little within a few months. so i believe that sometimes ignorance of something becomes a blessing too. Speaking up is just not the norm there, there are so many more problems that can be seen so why count depression as a disease. but here in Australia people have the basics and are striving for even better quality of life. so they can speak up. just like i am today. my mother had four children. i am number two, elder one is my sister and i have a younger brother, but my mum was not given the right to count the fourth, my angel sister. May be she choosed to forget herself. i am not sure because it was a long time ago and mum dosen’t like to discuss this topic. but now that i have kids, it all makes sense to me. Although i cant imagine anything happen to them but even if it does they will still be my babies. how can anyone forget a part of their body. we just love them no matter what. actually its the mild delays and dysplasia in two of my kids that reminded me of my sister who was born without a brain and died in hospital soon after birth. but i couldn’t understand it than. i only understand the pain as well as power it gave to mu mum, now that i am a mum. only that i am a mum. i know she will always be loved and remembered. and i hope every mum out there understands, only they will ! so hold your kids tight today and give them an extra cuddle from me. they are just too precious. whether in heaven or on earth…

  • Wow, such a powerful story, definitely reminds us all here in Australia that we do indeed have a great life


  • that is really sad for you. your mum won’t forget but it probably hurts her heart to remember that child she lost


  • Gone but never forgotten. Beautiful, sad read. Good on you for your courage to speak out. X


  • this is so sad and a great reminder of what we all have in life


  • Thankyou for having the courage to speak up. I enjoyed reading your story & sharing your experiences. I don’t think anyone could forget a loss of a child. It must’ve been hard for your Mum. I hope you & you family find happiness here in Australia


  • No matter the gap they are gone they leave heart prints that you carry with you forever


  • they are never forgotten as long as you carry the angel babies in your heart as I do for my 2 Grand babies born with there angel wings.


  • I think, sometimes no matter how much time has passed, there are things that are still to painful to talk about, it does not make them love them less, maybe its just still to painful to think of. Love to you and your family
