The circle of life can be cruel.

A friend from work lost her baby this week. She was three months old, diagnosed with congenital heart defects while pregnant. I had never been to a baby's funeral before today and I hope I never have to again. Though her parents were in pain, she looked peaceful, like she could be sleeping. Ready to be picked up and loved. To have life taken so soon is unfair.

It is bittersweet. As Courtney left her family, Miles came to Virginia and Shawn on Wednesday night. I know they will make awesome parents.

I struggle to comfort the grieving while congratulating the joyful and making sense of how the cards fall.
