I wonder what would have reached me. I wonder what would have made me change my mind. She said it may not have mattered anyway. I would have done anything to keep pain from you. Was that what this is?

My head knows I did everything I thought was right, but my heart will always wonder. Why didn’t I want to know more? I thought I was giving you your best chance.

Letters to Adrian are real letters from a mother to her stillborn child. Letters are shared here in periodic batches.
