Beka Clayton was pregnant with her second baby. She was in great health, she was glowing, she was blooming into the most beautiful flower you’d ever seen, she felt exuberant, she felt like a goddess growing life. It was perfect even with the pain. She was so close to completing her family, but life had other plans. 18 weeks and 6 days pregnant. The gestation Beka was with her second baby, when she knew something was wrong.

At her appointment, the doctors confirmed what Beka had known all along: her baby had died earlier that week.
