Remembering the Little Ones Lost

pregnancy-infant-loss-remembrance-dayThis is strongly on my heart today.

Today is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day.

I have not lost one of my own children, but I do have two siblings in heaven whom I have never met — one who would be two years older than me and my brother, Seth’s, twin. Just writing that down brings tears to my eyes. I miss them although I have never seen them. My heart aches for their loss.

My heart is also aching for all my mommy friends who have lost a little one through a miscarriage, still birth or infancy death. I know too many. I am thinking of each one of you and praying for you today. Know that your little one is loved and remembered. He or she is your little saint in Heaven watching down on your family. I’m lighting a candle this evening in their memory.

If you would like to leave your child’s in the comments, I will pray for him or her by name.

6 Thoughts on “Remembering the Little Ones Lost

    Thank you for this, Laurel. Before Mary Catherine died, I didn’t
    know what to say to people who had list a child, and thought it was
    better to not say anything than to say the “wrong” thing. But now, I
    think a kind remark is better than silence.

  2. Thank you so much Laurel! God love you!

  3. Thank you for this. Recently my husband and I went through a very traumatic miscarriage. We were just about to find out what the sex was when it happened. If it was a boy he would have been named Sebastian and if it was a girl she would have been names Olivia.

We love to hear from you!
