There May Not Be a Word For This

Dear CF,

I just stumbled on this news story by Gene Weingarten, for which he recently won a Pulitzer. Warning: it is terrible, and terribly sad. We think about parenthood plenty from the perspective of “before.” And “during.” But from the bleak, guilt-ridden point of view of an accidental “after”—well, this article does it pretty damn well, and Lyn Balfour, one of the protagonists of this awful story, is pretty damn unique.
