When you first become parents, you feel like you have joined a club. At least, my husband and I did. You know, you see another parent dealing with a fussy child and even though they are strangers, your eyes meet and you silently acknowledge..been there done that.
In the past few days, my husband and I feel we have been forced out of a group and into a club we want no part of. In our church we were one of five pregnant couples. Now they all have their babies and ours is in Heaven. While I am beyond thankful that their babies are safe, we are now out of that group (so to speak). We have now become part of a club...parents who have lost a baby. And it is not fun. Through this, I have been so blessed by others who have come forward and shared their stories. No two stories are the same. Every situation was unique and every single lost baby...so very well loved. I will say this, until you have lost a baby you cannot imagine what it feels like, and I pray you never do. It is a different kind of loss. Our family feels smaller. It truly does. Our family is no longer complete and will not be complete until we are reunited in Heaven.
