A Letter To All Of The Mothers Who Have Experienced Loss

 

From my heart…

I know that Mother’s Day weekend is painful or bittersweet for many of you. Many of you have been trying to have children, are undergoing infertility challenges or are grieving the loss of a child.

This has been on my heart all weekend and I just wanted to speak to you and give you a virtual hug. I want to assure you that God cares.

God sees your tears and He is near the broken-hearted. (Psalm 34:18)

Doug and I had three miscarriages when we were starting our family. I remember when I was trying to have a child, I saw only pregnant women and it seemed that everyone was pregnant except me. I remember that pain.

I know this weekend will be difficult for many of you. Please know that I am praying for you and for our Heavenly Father to wrap you in his comforting arms.

If you are looking for a book to help you pray through the pain, this is a great one to start with: Prayers That Avail Much: Three Bestselling Works Complete in One Volume, 25th Anniversary Leather Burgundy (Commemorative Leather Edition) by  Germaine Copeland.

I know the pain is so strong that we often do not know what to pray. This book is so very helpful.

I want to encourage …. Do not give up HOPE. God can do what doctors cannot do. I am believing that your prayers for a child are answered.

  1. Oh man, I got pregnant on the first try with both of my kids,so I can’t even imagine how hard it is for moms who are having trouble TTC.

  2. Honestly, I never thought about it until this Mothers Day. So, many stories of heartbreak on social media. I feel for all those moms in waiting…

  3. I swear I commented on this already???
    Anyway i said i have a few friends who are trying to have kids & It really is awkward on whether or not to wish them.
    What did you do?

    1. Thanks for commenting on the blog. The other day I had technical issues and there wasn’t a comment box. I really wanted to share this one though.
      My youngest daughter had 3 miscarriages in one year and is finally about half way through her 4th pregnancy. We are all cautiously excited. I let her bring it up so if she doesn’t want to talk , we don’t. When she wants to talk about it, she knows that I am there to listen. It is an individual preference.

  4. This is such a beautiful message. We all deserve to be honored on Mother’s Day, regardless of our current situation in life. Thank you for being an inspiration to many.

  5. Thank you for sharing your story and for your kind words – we don’t usually think of this side of a story on Mother’s Day.

  6. I think it is easy for others on the outside world to judge people without children but you just never know what struggles they are going through or what decisions they have had to make.

  7. You know, I read an article also about a mom who had a miscarriage and I was really impressed on her spirit when she said that …”I knew from the time I got pregnant, I’m already a mom” and after the painful event, she got another pregnancies with her 2 beautiful daughters. Just pray my dear, God has a perfect plan for you. Virtual hug!

    1. Thank you. I do have two daughters who are now grown. This is dedicated to all the moms who struggle with infertility.

  8. What a lovely post, you have a good written I wish I could have like yours. Thanks for the encouragement

  9. What a great post and powerful message, I enjoy reading this and I’m so glad you made me inspired

  10. Mother’s Day can definitely be hard for some! My thoughts are also with the people that are trying. I’m not going to say it will happen, but just that my heart aches when I hear stories of miscarriage and loss and also of infertility problems.
