Not just one day...

Today is pregnancy and infant loss day.  Many wouldnt know unless they have unfortunately dealt with this loss.  It isnt just one day for us, more or so many long days and nights where we are missing our babies.  It is the night you cant sleep because you are thinking about all of the hopes and dreams you had for your child.  It is when you are at the resturant and it seems that everyone else has a baby.  Or when you are shopping and it seems like every woman who walks past you is 7+ months pregnant.  It is when you come home wishing you could hold your baby.  It is the weekends at church when all the adorable kids are running around and you just want to cry.  It is when your arms physically ache to hold the sweet baby you miss so dearly.  

I am praying for all of you who has lost a child.  I know the pain and how exhausting it is.  I am so thankful to have God by my side.  I dont know how or where I would be without him.   

I am remembering all of the babies that are now healthy and running around in heaven.  I am praying for all of the moms and dads who are missing a part of their family today and every other day.  I am sitting here thinking about Emma who I miss so incredibly much.  I am aching to hold her yet I have to trust God.  I love her more than words can explain and am remembering her today and every other day.  I am also thinking of your sweet babies who I know you love and miss dearly as well.   
 Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight.  Proverbs 3:5-6


  1. Right there with you on all of it.
