My husband and I lost our daughter 4 1/2 years ago due to a sudden onset of HELLP Syndrome when I was about 6 months pregnant. We were angry, scared, and heartbroken all at once. At some point, however, we were very intentional about getting through our healing process with victory. Most women don't openly talk about the pain they carry due to the loss of a child- especially prior to birth (perinatal loss). This pain is very real, and the healing process takes time. I want to encourage someone by telling them that there is hope after loos. The hope isn't "wishing for another child". The hope I"m referring to us having peace of mind and a healed heart. October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Take a moment to share your story of hope to encourage another woman who may be suffering in silence. I'm thankful to be the mother of 2 miracle sons, but I am forever the mother of 2 angels.
