10 years ago I waited impatiently for this boy of mine. Not necessarily in the moment of the impending delivery but impatient because a couple of years previous I’d miscarried and I felt the deep longing every month even though we’d decided to wait a while before trying again. I felt embarrassed for taking so long to grieve - I found it really hard to come to terms with this first loss. I know I’m not alone in that. -
The beauty that came out of the ashes was that there was so much joy and gratitude over this new life that came to full term that I perhaps wouldn’t have felt to such an extreme without great loss.
I remain so grateful to my Maker for these boys in our lives and all they are becoming. -
For those dealing with current loss, you do not need to ‘get over it’, you are not a burden by sharing your grief with others and the life you were carrying was just that, life. Precious and valued life regardless of how many weeks. But, please, never lose hope. .
