Light a Candle for Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness

There are some moments we experience that are just too painful for words.  

Bleeding.  Cramping.  

Seeing the first ultrasound of where your baby used to be.

Miscarriage at 8 weeks.

I lost my baby.  My baby died. 

Those are words that cut deep into a mother's heart. 

The past few months have been the most difficult I've had to face.  I couldn't talk about it, barely get the words out.

I could only hold it close to me and feel it, process it, grasp all that it means.  Cry.  Get angry.  Breathe.  Focus on the every day things that need to be done.  Pray.  Accept.  Simply cling to my family and my faith.  

I am not alone.  There are other mothers whose hearts will never be the same.  

Won't you light a candle with me in remembrance of our babies who are gone too soon?  

Pray for those hearts that are grieving and broken.  Pray for those dreams that are broken too.

To my Little Bean:

Mommy loves you and thinks about you every day.  You are wanted and loved.  You will always be remembered as my third child and hold a special place in my heart.   One day I hope to meet you and hold you.  Until then, my angel.

  1. My heart goes out to you and all the other mother's who have lost a child this way (or anyway really)--Healing thoughts headed your way to at least help you to keep living for the other 2 children you do have and of course your husband who is probably grieving as well but possibly can not show it.

  2. Thank you Miki. It has been hard for our whole family. I so appreciate your kind words of support.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear this... I can't imagine what you are going through! I wish you lots of love and peace!

  4. I am so sorry for your loss. I experienced that few years ago. Heartbreaking

  5. I am SO sorry for your loss. I'm sitting here with tears in my eyes. I cannot even imagine coping with the loss of a child. God bless you and comfort you! Your family is in my prayers.

  6. We just had friends that went through the same thing. 8 weeks as well. It's very sad no matter how big the baby. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm sending out prayers for you and your family. I'm sorry you have to go through this.

  7. Oh that song is so beautiful. I am so sorry for your loss, and am glad that you shared your feelings and pain with us in the October 15th linkup. We talk a lot about the difficult pain of early loss in Sunshine After the Storm. You are not alone. Hugs. Alexa
