I don’t know that anything in life could ever prepare you for the experience of reviewing your child’s autopsy report.  The thing that got me the most when I skimmed it later, at home?  The description of his “light brown hair.”

Side note:  I think that Lauren and I are both a little in love with our geneticist.  He may be the most reassuring, caring person that I’ve ever met.

    Oh. Wow. I can’t imagine the feeling. My heart just broke for you over that very small, powerful post.

    Well, that’s a small grace.
    I’m sure you boy was beautiful.

    Little Ezra and his beautiful light brown hair. I can’t imagine how you must have felt. You have been in my thoughts over the last month.

  4. It’s just so incredibly difficult. I know what my son’s says, and I’ve consulted various specialists about it, but I cannot, will not, read it myself.

    I’m glad it mentioned Ezra’s light brown hair. Ezra. A baby. Your baby. A person. Your son. Beautiful.
