Invisible and Unspoken bonds

About a year ago, a heard of a former co-worker whose wife was due to deliver their first child. Tragically the baby was stillborn due to a cord accident. I had never been very close to this colleague, but the story of this baby really stuck with me. How could one not empathize with someone in these circumstances. All these months later, we've been through our own scare related to cord accident. We lost one of our beautiful babies. We're bonded now in a way, though he likely doesn't know it and we haven't even been in touch in many years.
