Not in a bad way at all, but people are really amazing. Odd that it takes such a bad thing (a baby dying) to restore your faith in humanity being good.

The amount of support my husband and I have received is just astounding to me, the cynic of humanity's well, humanity.

Family, online communities, moms' groups, the hackerspace, people I've volunteered with years ago, the UU church, everywhere..have came out and let me know they care, offered food, rides, whatever possible, it's just amazing to me. The outpouring of love, it makes me want to stay, stick around. I feel this incredible sense of community with humanity. The baby's book has 16 pages worth of people wanting to say something.

I don't know, I just felt like sharing because I think sometimes vegans think the world is not always very nice, but there are lots of nice people out there. (or at least that's what I've always felt, is that the world wasn't so good) The world DOES have caring people..

Oh Shanti, I am happy you're finding comfort and support. (((((hugs)))))) We've been thinking of you non-stop since finding out, and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Much love to you.

Shanti, I didn't know.

I'm so sorry you are going through this, but happy people around you are stepping up.

Many hugs!

I'm so sorry; I hadn't heard either. I'm glad people in your life are coming forward. Most people really do care and mean well.

Agreed. So, so wonderful that people are being kind and generous to you right now.
I hope you continue to be surrounded by love. (Also, if you need additional resources,
the woman who runs the BabySlime blog has lots and lots.)

Thanks for posting this Shanti. Very glad to hear that you're being surrounded with love and care. You've been on our mind here too, wishing there were something we could "do". I hope that peace comes your way soon.

I liked your post in the How Are You Feeling thread a lot. It really summarizes grief for me. I hope you can give yourself the space to feel any of your feelings <3 <3 <3

That's wonderful. I hope you're taking people up on their offers if you need to, because you totally deserve it.

Thinking of you, Shanti <3

I didn't know, either. I'm so sorry for your loss, but I'm glad to hear that you are surrounded by loving, supporting people.
