Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

My Fiance Was Hard Hit By The Loss

To cut the long story , i was admitted had the surgery and luckily, i didnt lose my fallopian tube. After the surgery, i stayed home for two weeks and my life slowly began to resume to normal. The funny thing about about the whole incident is that i didn't have the deep sense of loss that my fiance felt. He was the hardest hit by the news. He wanted a baby that bad. When i called with the tragic news that i was being admitted for surgery to remove the foetus, he pleaded with her"No, please tell them to save my baby".My family also felt for me. I attributed my detachment to the things , one i didnt know i was pregnant, thus never made the bond . May be had i known i was pregnant, i would have been affected by the loss but that is definitely something i never felt. by Miriam anijiom
