Haley Jane: Age 4
(Context: I had just had a miscarriage DURING A CAMPING TRIP where my husband also had gotten sick, and soon we were going to have to leave Iceland again because the VISA still hadn’t been granted).
Haley was on the computer skyping with her Grammy and Papa last weekend, describing to them her first camping trip. The conversation went like this:
Pappy: Haley, what did you think of camping?
Haley: Well, the first night we got there it was good…..that’s because no one had a cold or a miscarriage yet.
But then it got bad because Daddy got a cold and Mommy got a miscarriage. But, I didn’t get a cold or have a miscarriage….Well, actually, I CAN’T have a miscarriage because….(Chuckling to herself)…. I can’t have a baby…..And I CAN’T have a baby because…..(wait for it….you know it has to be good…..) well…because I don’t have a residence permit.”
