Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan’s refreshingly honest Facebook post about miscarriages

I read with great interest this morning the news that Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan are having a baby -- not because they're having a baby, but for the way they shared their experiences with miscarriages.
“You feel so hopeful when you learn you’re going to have a child,” Zuckerberg continued. “You start imagining who they’ll become and dreaming of hopes for their future. You start making plans, and then they’re gone. It’s a lonely experience. Most people don’t discuss miscarriages because you worry your problems will distance you or reflect upon you — as if you’re defective or did something to cause this. So you struggle on your own.” 
Yes, on every word.
