Well, it finally happened, the moment I have been dreading for 11 weeks now.
A student came in to meet with me and he asked, "How's the baby?"
I didn't even know that he knew I was pregnant.
"The baby died," I responded. "She was stillborn."
"Oh my God," he stammered. "I'm so sorry."
"It's okay," I responded. And in my head, I'm screaming, IT'S SO NOT OKAY!
"I mean, it's not okay. It's very hard. But it's okay that you asked. You didn't know," I continued.
And then we discussed if he could possibly get a foreign language exemption because of his disability.
And when he finally left my office, I cried.
I'd like to go home now, and the day has just started.
