Re: dreaming of my lost child??
I am terribly sorry for your loss.
As far as your question...is this normal- As a person who has experienced vivid and lucid dreams on a regular basis, I feel that dreaming is a wonderful tool the brain uses to process events, feelings and even fears. In your case, with such a trauma in your background dreaming may be another way of processing the lingering feelings, the loss, and the loss of a future child. The fact that in your dreams your baby has "grown" into a child that you can communicate with, and watch is a powerful and loving image that I hope you can find joy in, rather than a cause for alarm or concern.
"Normal" is a word that hardly matters, as the range of normal is huge if not immeasurable. In my past dreams I have actually solved real life situations that I was able to take with me into my life and feel a real sense of completion. As a mother, I can certainly understand the loss of a child being a lifelong loss and if your child is coming to you in your dreams, I would encourage you to accept the dreams as a way to keep your child's memory alive.
I wish you the best...
