  1. “What do You want to show me through the loss of our baby?” -> This is just about the bravest question I’ve ever read. Thank you for using your own story as a billboard to announce that loss is not a dead end. I was just listening to a podcast on the life of Helen Roseveare, missionary physician to Africa during horrible times in which she suffered greatly, and her takeaway was all about the privilege of suffering. My heart longs for this kind of courage and ability to follow the dotted line back to God from every circumstance.

  2. I experienced such a loss in 1980. It took me some time to try again and get over it. We now have a healthy adult son. I hadn’t met or heard of anyone going through this for years. Your story will help others for sure.

  3. Thank you for being unafraid to share what it felt like to face the death of a baby, a dream and to be physically alone. To know you reached, asked and were comforted by The Great Comforter, is a blessing to me. I have walked in those shoes. I know I will meet the souls I lost when I’m with Jesus. I am just astounded by your raw courage to ask your question of Jesus. At 59, I am just realizing, I must conquer the fear, of fear. I am a brave soul myself, but I dread loss, lonliness and the unknown. Oh, for just more faith! And belief, and to feel it, live it, be certain that His will is always right for me. Thank you my sister in Christ.

  4. I have lost 4 babies (and have 4 live children). It is HARD!!!! I knew of no one going through this when I was on this journey and felt very alone. Learning to surrender totally and utterly and accepting that bad stuff does happen in life and no matter how good or hard we work at life, we are not in control is something I can totally identify with. A lesson that God has had to teach me through many hard times – but I would not go back and swap those hard times for anything! He loves me enough to change me to be more like Him. Our God is SO SO SO good. He has physically given me comfort on many occasions and that peace is indescribable to others.

  5. Thank you for sharing and allowing God to use you by sharing. I needed to hear this today! Not the same sorrow but sorrow none the less and needing to let go of fear! God bless you richly for sharing.
