Dear Sweet Mama Friend who has or is experiencing infertility, miscarriage, still birth or infant loss,
I see you. I hear you. My heart aches for you. And today, I want you to know you’re not alone. I’ve been there along with so many others. Twice. Once early on at 7.5 weeks along and then our daughter Paisley, born still at 23 weeks just over a year ago. I feel your heartache, I know your pain. I know how it feels to sleep on a tear drenched pillow. To lay there asking God why?!?! When there are no clear answers.
I see you try and be happy for that friend or family member who is pregnant or has just had a new baby but deep inside, you’re hurting so bad, crying so hard. I know what it’s like to wonder when you’ll be able to truly smily again, from the inside.
And I understand your fear with moving forward, scared it will happen again….or not happen at all. Just know this mothers day, that you’re not alone sweet mama. You are thought of and prayed for. I can’t say I know what the future holds for you but I do know you’re going to make it through this. You’re going to smile again. You’re going to be ok. This is a part of your journey, your story. And I know you’re going to come out stronger on the other side. <3
“Hope quietly tells your heart that all is not lost, even as the storms rage. Our hope is a living hope because Jesus lives forever.”
I just want you to know that you’re constantly on my heart mama friend and I’m praying for you, especially this mothers day.
Sending you the biggest virtual hug from one grieving mama to another.
“Weeping may last for the night but joy comes with the morning.”
I’m from Ontario, Canada and married to my husband (highschool sweetheart) of almost 9 years. We have three boys earthside and 2 babes heaven side. I’m a wedding and lifestyle photographer and I homeschool my boys as well. I love good coffee and travelling and I’ve become so passionate about sharing our story with others – how the Lord carried us through one of the most difficult seasons we’ve had to endure as a family and showed us what it truly meant to experience joy in the midst of grief and sorrow.
