Remembering our babies: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day



Remembering our Babies: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Today is a day for reflection and thought for many mommies.

For those of you who have lost a little one, no matter the stage, please accept my sympathies for your loss.

At 7:00 pm tonight, I will join many others world-wide in lighting a candle to remember.

In loving memory of our son

Although I have never lost a child, I wanted to let you know, that at 7PM tonight we too will remember Jacob.

I am remembering Jacob today as well. His short life touched my own life in such a mighty way.

Trusting in our sovereign Lord...in all things~

What sweet friends! You guys are awesome.

We had a sweet time with the girls tonight. We spent time in prayer thanking God for Jacob and the girls and for His grace in our lives. It was a precious time.

I just learned we have something in common. John and I lost our first born, a son, Ethan Thomas Camp. He was stillborn at full term. That was almost 8 years ago. We love him and miss him every day!

You wrote so beautifully about your experience, you have inspired me. I remember wondering how everybody else could just "go on living" as well. And I always feel awkward when people ask how many kids we have. Do I tell them 3 or 4?

God has been so good to us through this painful experience, though. He has brought us to a much greater understanding of who he is. It has strengthened our marriage so much. I mean, we've been through our worst night mare, what else can hurt us!?

Anyway, maybe I'll blog about Ethan some time soon. I'd love to hear more about Jacob as well. I know how it can be good to talk about it some times. Just know I'm here and I have had a similar experience.
