...react if you were in these families' position?
With deep grief if I were one, with muted joy if I were the other.
I can't imagine being either set of parents.
There's not a person here who can answer that question with any assurance.
This is such an unprecedented event.
All that I can say with any certainty is that if I were the mother who believed for five weeks that I was tending to my child in the hospital only to find out that I was tending to another woman's child and that my child had been dead and buried for five weeks.....well....it's enough to give some parents a literal heart attack.
And I don't mean that flippantly.
And as Daisy said...for that parents who found out that the child they buried was not their own....their joy is surely muted.
