Did you know 1 in 4 women go through a miscarriage, infant loss or stillbirth? Pretty crazy, huh? I really didn’t know many people who had a miscarriage/stillbirth before I had my own miscarriage. Shortly after I had my first miscarriage, my good friend had her first stillbirth. It was a hard time for a lot of us.
Since having my miscarriage I realized a lot of women go through this- that doesn’t make it easy- but it’s nice to know I’m not walking this alone.
My first miscarriage brought me so close to my Lord. Thank the Lord I didn’t go into depression or struggled too much, even though I was working at a crisis pregnancy center at that time. I love this post of Bible verses for finding hope in miscarriages.
For those of you who have never gone through this loss- this is a great post on what not to say and how to help those grieving.
Just because we have gone through this loss does not mean we struggle with more than others do. We need to remember to turn to the Lord during any trial we are in and remember our Lord who dearly loves us has placed us in this trial for a reason. “Remember this, had any other condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there.” ~Spurgeon
So, today, we remember those babies who left us too soon. And we pray for those who are still grieving their babies…and struggling with infertility. ❤
