Father's Day Gifts for Grieving / Bereaved Fathers | The Morning: A community of hope for women finding joy after miscarriage, stillbirth or infant loss

Father’s are often forgotten when we think about those who are grieving the loss of a baby. Yet, their grief is no less than that of a mother, different, but not less.

Similarly to my sentiments for Mother’s Day, “it isn’t about the gift — it’s extravagance or monetary value— instead it’s about someone remembering and affirming” that he is a father, despite his empty arms. The gifts carefully curated above will speak volumes of love. The personalized gifts are perfect for remembering due dates, baby names, birth details and even tiny photos tucked in a keychain. I especially love the print from Gracelaced (#1) with the quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “All I have seen teaches me to trust the creator for all I have not seen.” Such a meaningful quote for someone walking through pain and suffering, clinging to promises of hope and restoration.

Pair any of these gifts with one of the Father’s Day cards from The Morning Shop and you will bring healing to a hurting father. (The cards are available as instant digital downloads so you can print at home!)

For a heart that is grieving, the holidays are extremely difficult. And that is most likely an understatement. For the one grieving, everywhere they look they see only disappointment. They see only loss. They see only what is missing. They grieve memories they will never be able to make. But there is Hope. And Advent […]

Mothers Day: When It Hurts | Infant Loss, Pregnancy Loss | The Morning | A Community of Hope for Grieving Parents

Joy and heartache, celebration and mourning. A seemingly odd pairing and yet daily we find ourselves experiencing both extremes, often simultaneously. Mother’s Day is no exception. Celebration and mourning. Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep. Romans 12.15 On this Mother’s Day:  We celebrate the women who are knee deep in the trenches […]

Less than 2 weeks after my son died we walked through our first holiday without him. This new reality of life and loss and navigating grief was in it’s infancy and we were desperately clinging to our old “normal.” “Normal” felt like an anchor that would keep us steady and safe and afloat. In a […]
