Praying for YOU

In honor of Pregnancy Loss Awareness Day

I am thinking of and praying for YOU today.  

YOU, who have no living children, yet have the heart of a mother.  

YOU, who while pregnant after a loss, have a heart of fear; loving your child within yet still longing for your child in heaven.  

YOU, who feel you have been robbed of the innocent joy that a pregnancy can bring, knowing all too well that sometimes things don't turn out the way you plan them.

YOU, who are still suffering in your grief after the death of your child.  

YOU, who heard the words, "I'm sorry. We can't find a heartbeat." 

YOU, who had a baby shower, decorated a nursery, picked a name, yet did not bring a baby home from the hospital.

YOU, who don't know how to answer the casual question, "So, how many children do you have?"

YOU, who have part of your family living on earth and part living in heaven.

And while I pray for YOU, I pray for ME at the same time. And I thank Him for YOU, for being my friend and for walking the hard road with me.

Thank you,I am praying for you as well.(((HUGS)))
I know you sent this out to everyone of "us",but it touched my heart personally.My miscarriage was so many years ago(17 to be exact),everyone expects me to be "over it".But you know,I will never be "over it",only learn to live without my child until we are reunited:)

Thank you for this, it is very comforting. Our daughter Esther had Trisomy 18 and died 30 September 2006. Time doesn't diminish the loss. I think about her everyday as does my husband. For the rest of our family it is as if she never existed and that brings its own kind of pain.
