Suzanne’s story

Suzanne’s story

In December of 1972 at the age of 24 I gave birth to a boy. 5 weeks early. 5lbs 10z. He died about 36 hours later. This is almost 50 years ago.

Only my mother talks about the loss.

I went on to have 2 healthy boys. I still find it difficult to talk about my loss.
