October 15: Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

I'm coming off a long blogging hiatus to talk about Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day.  Some say the subject of pregnancy loss is taboo. I don't know if I agree. I think it's just very personal. Early miscarriages happen before many even share their news, and before a swollen belly gives them away. But there are still people who are uncomfortable at the mention of someone's loss, and what a shame that is.

You needn't worry that your bringing up of someone's lost child will make them sad or remind them of their loss. Quite the opposite. They will be overjoyed that someone remembered their precious child, that someone took the time to say "thinking of you". They didn't forget that they lost a child, that there's a hole in their heart that will only be filled in heaven. You don't remind them; they couldn't forget if they tried.

Will you take a moment to pray with me for all those moms, dads, bothers, sisters, or grandparents who are grieving a child they never got to know?
