My four losses that happened all within exactly a year will never make sense. The four years of soul-crushing infertility prior to them will never make sense. Having my daughter now doesn’t take away the grief, anger, and bitterness I still have over having to endure all of that. It’s not her responsibility to make me better. It’s my job to work through that. But her merely existing has helped to heal my heart. A little more each day, I feel more whole.
