The best thing for you to is to keep her busy and listen. Make sure she knows that she is not alone. Make sure she knows that her spouse is most likely hurting too and that her kids need her. It's ok to grieve and to miss this baby. God is caring for her baby now and He is a great substitute parent. I hope this helps.

The last thing she probably wants hear right now is that it's meant to be, there was something wrong with it or she can always try again.

I agree. You must be a great friend. Watch her kids, and keep her busy. And listen while she vents.

When I went through mine this fall, nobody offered to watch the kids.

I'm sorry Sydney. Just be an ear for her, sometimes that's all she'll need. Having been through it multiple times yourself I'm sure she will understand that you know how she feels. It's always a tough situation. I think taking her kids for a day is a great idea.
