Here’s a little from her article:
Very few people can pick up a brand new book, read the last page and feel satisfied with the story. Why? The end before the beginning just doesn’t make sense; it is not something the logical mind can comprehend. Yet, for those who have experienced a stillbirth, an end before a beginning is exactly what we walk through. And it doesn’t make any sense…
Have you ever experienced pain in a situation so bad you struggle between your will, God’s will and understanding it all? You are not alone.
If you are trying to make sense of it all, I would love to suggest writing out your story, your feelings, your own struggles in a journal. Just write for you (unless God leads you otherwise).
I personally miscarried after only a few months of pregnancy and remember the hurt still today. The questions of why, what could I have done different and the grief. I can’t imagine the pain and struggles of a loss of a child later in pregnancy or after their birth.
Recently at a women’s conference, the speaker shared her story of loss and then had everyone in the room stand up if they miscarried or lost a child and over half the room stood up….this was in a stadium that held thousands of women!
Take comfort in knowing you are not alone and never feel afraid to just talk out your feelings of grief and anger with a trusted friend or write them out in your journal.
I’ll be sharing at these lovely blogs.
