Grateful Encouragement

The month after my daughter died, I focused on physically healing.  I took the steps I knew I needed to take in order to get healthy or at least put myself on the path to becoming stronger and healthier.  You all were there for me, with encouraging words and kindness, and it held me up… Continue reading Grateful Encouragement

Miscarriage and the Media

When I had my first miscarriage, I didn't feel like there was much conversation about pregnancy loss in the media or in my community.  One of the consequences of silence is the isolation women feel when they are going through their grief.  That's why I talk about it.  It's why I'm open about our journey, even… Continue reading Miscarriage and the Media

Losing my daughter is always in the back of my head.  I wonder in… Continue reading Another Step in the Journey of a Miscarriage

With Mother’s Day coming up, I’ve spent a lot of time in reflection this past couple of weeks.  Recently, I was asked if it bothers me that all the women of the Bible who suffered with infertility ended up having babies.  The short answer is no.  Just the fact that these stories were included in… Continue reading Mother’s Day
