Yesterday, I posted three video interviews of my sister sharing about her miscarriage experience, in the hopes that through Ginny’s story, other women might find a voice to begin talking about this very difficult subject. Today I am posting the last three videos from the interview. These videos talk about how Ginny’s friends and family helped her through, including what things were good to hear and what sentiments she found hurtful.
A special, huge thanks to my sister for being brave enough to speak out. And a special, huge hug to all those women out there who have been in Ginny’s position before. Someone commented today on the Part 1 post that women who have gone through this experience join a kind of silent sisterhood. I love the idea of finding sisterhood in the midst of broken hearts, but I do hope that one day our society will overcome the silence of miscarriage. It isn’t pleasant or happy or sunny, but there are lots of things in life that aren’t any of those things, and the darkness doesn’t make them any less significant or important. I hope we all can become more comfortable turning on the light and speaking up and out about what our sisters are going through.
