This is so incredibly sad.
A new year marks a new beginning for a lot of people, especially as they look back over the previous 12 months and reflect on what they’ve been through.
For Kimberly McCullough, who plays Robin Scorpio on General Hospital, 2015 wasn’t the easiest of years as she revealed in a blog post that she suffered a miscarriage after carrying for 22 weeks.
The 37-year-old actress reflected on her year by first explaining how excited she initially was about directing an episode of Pretty Little Liars. Around the time the industry vet was gearing up to shoot, she admitted:
“I had just found out I was pregnant. Two weeks later I was in my office (OMG) over at Pretty Little Liars and I got a call from my doctor. The nurse came on the phone and to my surprise, told me I was having a girl. That was probably the best day of my life thus far, the one I will remember as ‘having it all.’ It was the night before my first day of shooting. I was prepared. I was fulfilled.”
Tragedy struck though, as the PLL director went on to reveal:
“My heart was so full and then it broke. I had lost my baby girl. It was too much. I didn’t need to learn this lesson. I wasn’t interested. But I wasn’t in control. These things happen and no, I don’t believe they happen ‘for a reason.’ I’m still processing, still healing, but anyone who has gone through it knows, losing a baby at 22 weeks is tragic. One thing I am proud of however was that I allowed myself to be happy and to relish the moment. I sat in all that goodness and I can recall those feelings (when I’m having different ones) and hope that it can be like that again.”
We can’t imagine dealing with such a tragic event and wish all the best for Kimberly.
Though, as sad as the news was to learn, it seems McCullough is trying to keep a positive outlook as she wrapped up her post by saying:
“Not to go total Oprah on you, but at the end of this year and the beginning of the next, I am grateful for it all. Tired. But grateful.”
