Something that has been breaking my heart lately.
Julia’s family: Mommy and Daddy and Nathan and Lauren
Lauren’s family: Mommy, Daddy and Julia.
No Nathan. She is learning to write – she writes about all of us but not him. Her “My Family” project for school, – no Nathan. I didn’t ask, didn’t push. I just asked it there were any other pictures she wanted. I then asked if she wanted any pictures from when she was younger and she said no. So that’s it.
I don’t blame her. She was only 20 months old when he died. He is just an idea to her. He is a stranger in pictures. I just wish she understood how much he loved and adored her and that she does have a big brother.
I just makes me really sad.
