Our Stories Aren't Over
Dear Grieving Mom,
August brings a lot of feelings for me.
This time last year we were planning a gender reveal party for our family.
On the 8th we went in for our ultrasound and instead of learning our child's gender we learned that she would die if God didn't intervene.
The 9th is our wedding anniversary.
The 14th we went in for an appointment to see if Abbie had a heartbeat. She didn't.
I delivered her on the 15th.
I can't believe it's already been a year. Some days it still doesn't seem real, that this is all just a bad dream.
I think this quote from Grace Like Scarlett sums up everything I've learned over this year: “God is present in our suffering, and grief doesn’t have to become our undoing. you are not alone, and your story isn’t over.”
God is present.
Grief doesn't have to wreck me.
I'm not alone.
My story isn't over. There is more to be written.
To my friends who have also experienced the loss of a child:
God is with you.
Grief doesn't have to wreck you.
You are not alone.
Your story isn't over. There is more to be written.
I love you and I'm here for you if you ever want to talk. Seriously. Please send me a message. I'm here. ❤️
And if y'all think about it can you pray for us whenever we may cross your minds? Your support this year has been incredible and I can't thank you all enough.
