While I have been blessed with many beautiful children, my journey has not been without loss. My family will be twice as large in eternity as it is here on earth. (Which is saying something, considering our size!) Some of these losses have occurred very early in my pregnancy. Others have been later on, in my second trimester. (Thankfully, I have not experienced a loss past that point.) I know from my own experience that some miscarriages are more traumatic than others and there are a lot of factors that determine that. There is no “one size fits all” formula for coping with loss. If you have experienced the loss of a baby, please know that you have my sympathy and I won’t pretend that I understand what you are feeling. However, I will offer my journey, hoping at least part of it will bring a measure of comfort.
