Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

Today Oct. 15, 2009 is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. This day is important to me because I have two children that I have lost and I miss them all the time. Jack would be 2 now, and Rose would be 8 months. We would be a family of 7, but we are a family of 7 because I won't forget them. The kids know they were here even if only briefly, they have a brother and sister in heaven with Jesus. I want them here with me, I want to hold their hands and cuddle them in my lap. I want to get frustrated with their whining and tantrums and spend more money on plane tickets and get a bigger rental car. Nothing will ever be completely right until the day I meet them in heaven, but I have peace knowing God has all of us in His hands. Without his comfort many times over the past couple years I wouldn't have been able to get up and keep going. I am forever thankful for my three here with me, but I will always miss and remember my two that I held for only a brief time in my womb. I will carry them in my heart always. I pray today for my two and for the countless others lost in miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or through accidents. For the parents, for the families, and for the infants that God may hold them and does hold them all in His heart. May we lift all of our families up and remember we are His, all of us.
God Bless,
