I am the oldest of 12 grandchildren. I'm a girl of 12. When my godmothers daughter, my cousin was born she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck completely suffocating her. The doctors said they had barely saved her because in another 5 minutes she would have been dead. When her sister was born she was a pre- me of 6 weeks. She was very small and fragile and when she came out nobody thought she would live. She had lost all hearing in her right ear and had to stay in the hospital for 1.5 weeks. She was constantly getting hurt and had to go to the hospital many times. The oldest is now happy and in private school preschool and her sister goes to a special aide preschool for the mentally or sight and hearing defective. They are both happy and were born two years apart. My aunt loves her children but now is sadly always so paranoid whenever put in a somehow dangerous situation. At least they're happy. Good luck to all those who have lost someone.

Isabella your aunt is so worried about her children that this excessive worry is causing her to be paranoid.
If things don't improve you can encourage her to go and see a counsellor for support to find out what is going on inside her. It is very hard to live with constant worry over children and their safety. It will rob your aunt of the joy of having these children. Any counselling will sort out this problem.
You are 12yrs. and starting to mature and you can be forgive for wishing good luck to those who have lost a loved one. It is not luck we all need but Peace, and comfort in our sorrow and grief.
You are very thoughtfull to post here with your concern for your aunt. But you still have a lot of growing up to do so that you will understand fully what is going on in the adult world with Loss and illness and the fear of losing a loved one and how painful this grief journey is.
Continue to be supportive to your aunt and I wish you all the best as you journey through life. May your sorrows be small ones and your joys be multiplied. Best wishes.
