Pregnancy & Infant Loss


Posted one day late: 
October 15th: Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Will never forget ♥

“Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy.” - John 16:22



In October 1988, President Ronald Reagan Proclaimed October as National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month. "When a child loses his parent, they are called an orphan. When a spouse loses her or his partner, they are called a widow or widower. When parents lose their child, there isn't a word to describe them. This month recognizes the loss so many parents experience across the United States and around the world. It is also meant to inform and provide resources for parents who have lost children due to miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, stillbirths, birth defects, SIDS, and other causes."

I will never forget the day (August 17, 2009) we went into the doctors office to listen to our babies heart beat and heard nothing.  The doctor didn't give us a lot, but gave us a small hope that I was just not as far long as we thought and we would check again in a week. Sadly for us, a week later when we went back in, our baby still had no heart beat.  My DNC was schedule for September 9, 2009.

God is good though, trust in Him Always! On August 17, 2010 (one year later) I was in the hospital being induced to have our precious baby boy. He arrived one day later on August 18th. He is such a blessing. God had other plans for our first child, but I know one day I will meet my sweet baby. For now, God himself (and my grandma Gigi) is with my baby. What a thought!

It doesn't take a special day for me to remember our baby but it is special to have a day where families can unite and all remember. 

God bless and be with you all!

AND I am so thankful for this reminder!

Bless the Lord, O my soul
O my soul
Worship His holy name
Sing like never before
