Memories & Prayers

Today, October 15, is the National Day of Remembrance for Pregnancy & Infant Loss. (through miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant loss) Though it's been 10 years since the loss of our triplets, and the pain does indeed lessen each year, I don't ever want to forget. To forget what they looked like, to forget holding them in my arms as they drew their last breaths, to forget the peace that overwhelmed us as we said good-bye. And I also never want to forget the comfort that God has granted us over the years, through his Word, through the prayers of others, and the kindness and gentleness of friends and family who remember with us.

Also, please visit Angie's site, and pray for the hundreds of women who are, this day, grieving the loss of their children.

As for me, today, I don't ask for prayers for myself, but for those who have had to experience the heartache and have not been able to come to a place of peace, knowing that their child is playing at the feet of Jesus, and that someday, if we trust Him, we'll be seeing them again.

This is one of those posts where I am at a loss for words. I thank God every day for my children and don't know what I would do without them. I couldn't imagine going through what you went through. My oldest son stopped breathing a few minutes after he was born and was rushed to a childrens hospital where he was saved. I think I prayed more that night than I did the entire time before then. I will never forget the feelings I had that night and the weeks to follow. Can I just say Bless you Kim?
