This week we got a box from my MIL filled with various presents to put under our tree from her. She has recently started dating a very nice man whom I have never met. One of the boxes is a small gold box that says "To: Joshua and the baby to come" from: (his name).
My DH was handing me the boxes from the big box to put under the tree and I was commenting, "oh, this one's for Josh and this one's for me..." etc etc. I got to the one that said it was to my son and the "baby to come" and just got pale and felt like I wanted to cry and throw up at the same time. I totally don't understand. I know that she must have shared with him we lost the baby and I know she saw what he put in the box to send to us. My DH seemed to know the box was coming and didn't seem the least bit bothered or uneasy about it. I just said "why would he write this? why would he send this? why would somebody do that?"
We don't have a "baby to come". What could possibly come from a total stranger to our "baby to come"? Perhaps I'm being overly sensitive but I just cannot make any sense out of this and it pains my heart to read that label or see that box.
