Sad but grateful

I just lost our baby at 16 weeks and had a D & E on Monday. It was the most emotional thing I have ever experienced. My husband and I tried for 4 years and were finally blessed in January with the acknowledgement of being pregnant. My daughter, who will be 7 later this year, was the most excited to get a baby brother or sister. Yet, she was the strongest after we told her the sad news on Friday. It has been most difficult to let people comfort me. After I had the surgery on Monday, I had come to the realization that I was already blessed with the most wonderful daughter anyone could ask for. The baby for which I lost was my gift to her. I can only say that I am grateful to have at least been able to be pregnant and to love and lose a baby. I also know that I will be able to give her the gift again someday in the future. My daughter and I went shopping last night after school and she found a little angel that she wanted to keep in her room to always remind her that she was given a gift that she would not physically receive.
