Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day

jesus holding babyOctober 15 is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day.

Today I am remembering my sweet girl, Esther, who touched my life so deeply. Though we had her for such a short time, our love for her continues. I will ever be thankful for the tiny life that changed our family forever…

Dear Esther,

We love you sweet girl. Your sister, brother, daddy, and I miss you. We miss your presence in our family. Not a day goes by that we don’t think of you. We wish you were here. We wonder what your smile would look like, what your giggle would sound like, and what your hugs would feel like.  It’s hard to believe that you would already be walking, talking, and showing your personality. It still breaks my heart that I will never get to hold your little hand for walks, orESTHER-150x150 see you reaching up to be held, or kiss your owwies away, or watch you playing hand with your big sister and little brother. But one day I will embrace your little hands and never have to say goodbye again. You are precious, little girl, and you hold a place in mommy’s heart that will always be yours.

Hold tight to Jesus little one, and until we meet again, know that we love you and we remember you…

Today, I am also remembering all the dear friends of mine who have also lost a precious child. So many babies with Jesus…Luke, Lucy, Pax, Jude, Cameron, Sophia, Aaron, Matthias, Benjamin, Zechariah, Mary, Rachelle and many others. As I remember each of their names, I realize that heaven is a rich place. For the mommies and families here there is pain, but for the babes in heaven there is great rejoicing!

Perhaps you know someone who has had to say goodbye too soon. Reach out to them today and let them know you remember…Just a call, text, or email can remind someone that their baby is not forgotten. Thank you to each of my friends who have already contacted me today. You can also join with us by lighting a candle at 7:00pm in memory of these little ones.

Matthew 19:14 “…Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

You are invited to comment with the name of a precious life you are remembering today…
