PREGNANCY AND INFANT LOSS REMEMBERANCE DAY
Today (and as I do and pray for everyday) I'm remembering and honoring all those precious babies gone too early who are dancing with Jesus in Heaven and pray for their mommies and daddies who mourn their sweet angels. I pray they keep holding on to until that day when they are reunited together again forever in heaven.
1 in 4 women experience a miscarriage in their lives. That means that every single day in the US, 2,000 women lose a baby to pregnancy/infant loss. That’s 700,000 a year, a quarter of all females in this country. The loss of a child sadly seems to be an incredibly taboo “hush-hush” subject in our society. Women are often forced to suffer in silence. But a day like today is helping to change that. You are not alone! You are loved. I am here for you and so many others are here for you!
Today is a special day to reflect on the loss, yet embrace the love. Today is honoring those babies who passed on during a miscarriage, an ectopic pregnancy, a stillbirth, or as a young infant. While these babies’ lives were so brief, they were also very meaningful. Every life, no matter how brief, forever changes the world.
God bless you, precious angel babies, you are so very loved.
I have many friends who have experienced miscarriages and/or infant loss. I will name a few below to honor them and their babies today. (Please forgive me if I should happen to leave out any names because I know I cannot think of each and every name at this moment. Know that I do pray for you.)
Niki, Cassidy, Kim, Debby, Heather, Heidi (twin babies Charlie & Savannah), Nicoleen, Angie (baby Hope), Jill, Patty, Rebecca, Tessa, Shannon, Bethany, Katie, Lori, Lindsey, Emily, and Jenny
