Stories of Loss: Infant and Pregnancy

Written by Leslie Means

Last October, so many wonderful mothers, fathers, grandparents, etc shared their stories with us.

They shared about a loss so deep.  The loss of their sweet babies.  

We’ve had many requests to share these posts again.  Their words helped comfort others who have felt the loss of a child.   Below you’ll find the links to all those stories published on October 15, 2013.  We hope they can help bring you comfort.

Today’s Stories: 

Jordan Lee – What to say to a friend who is going through a miscarriage  

Charlie’s Story – After the loss of their 2-year old girl.   

Held Your Whole Life – A letter to the babies I have lost

 Loss – “I felt broken” – A mother who has endured miscarriages and a still birth

A Mama Broken – How are we supposed to feel?  Here’s what she says. 

Hearing a Heartbeat – Waiting for the news is so hard, but more miracles can come.

 Each story is so touching.  But together they say, “You are not alone”

Living with Grief – When my throat closes up and I choke back tears, I think of this quote…and I think of my two triplets who are no longer here on earth. I am the poster child for living with grief. 

Knitting for Nicholas – My daughter, Audrey, was a twin…is a twin…is a twinless twin

Infertility – A year later – As I stare at my precious 10 month old baby, a wave of emotion comes over me. Peyton is the definition of a miracle; a child who no one thought had a chance of survival.
