A few weeks ago, not long after the miscarriage, we were having a family picnic and enjoying a day of relaxation. As we were sitting around a picnic table Haley spotted this apple and said, “Mommy, the Apple reminds me of you…” I thought I knew what she was referring to, but I wasn’t convinced that my four year old had the capacity for such abstract thinking. I looked at Haley, “Well, what do you mean?” She gave her classic smile of embarrasment and replied, “Oh, nothing.” Intrigued, Annie and I gently pressed her to share what she was thinking about and she eventually obliged our request. Pensively she stated, “The Apple represents Mom and the scar represents…you know…the miscarriage.” Annie and I shared a look of amazement and shook our heads in disbelief at Haley’s capacity to see a picture of life in an otherwise ordinary object.
