Always #Miscarriage #Grief #MiscarriageSupportby Ellen DuBois on 05/12/17
I have felt connected to the baby I lost for over 25 years. He would have been 26 this Thanksgiving.
As we approach Mother's Day, I find myself feeling a roller coaster of emotions. That's nothing new. I've always longed for a child and for whatever reasons, the only one I had never made it into my arms. I lost my Alex to miscarriage when I was 16 weeks pregnant.
The love never died. I don't believe his spirit did, either. I have felt him near me since he entered my life. That kind of love doesn't fade. At least it didn't with me.
Now, I find myself missing my baby and my mother. I know we all have our stories. The thing is, when we share what we're going through, we feel less alone. I think that's important.
Keeping it balanced: I count my blessings and try to do the best I can in all aspects of this journey. My faith is strong and I have a very loving God and many angels who care about me. I have a wonderful family and I am grateful for them every...single.. day.
But, there are times when all of us need to know we are not alone. I know I'm not, and I hope you find some comfort in knowing you are not, either.
I feel a bond with all of you who have miscarried. I feel a kinship with those of you who have mothers in Heaven, too, or both. I've walked both paths now and sometimes, my footing doesn't feel so sure. Mother's Day can be a tough one when you're grieving your baby, your mother...
I keep all of you in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless and comfort you and may you feel the warmth of His love and the love of your little ones and other loved ones surround you like a soft, safe blanket made of Divine threads of love.
