It is not easy. It’s close to three months now since we said goodbye to our beloved son Ali. Just received news that a colleague of mine gave birth to her daughter today. We got pregnant around the same time; in fact I was just a week behind her. I know our son is in a better place right now. But the ache in my gut and heart is still strong every time I think of him. I am thankful to Allah for the chance we had to be with him. For the chance we had to hold him. I miss him. I miss having him with us. God willing, we will meet and be with Ali again in heaven.
