“And He will wipe away every tear from their eyes;
and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain;
the first things have passed away.”
Knowing we are not going through this season alone offers a peace that cannot be found anywhere else.
First, please accept my condolences and know that my prayers are with you.
You are visiting this site because sadly, you have become a part of "a club" of sorts that no one wants to be a part of. You, or someone very dear to you has suffered a tragic loss; the death a child. More than likely, right now you are a mix of emotions. You're not sure which one to identify with. Your brain is filled with a novocain of sorts to help you cope and has stunned you. A time of great joy and celebration has turned to unspeakable sadness and sorrow.
Please remember while you cope during this extremely difficult time that there is no real order to the grieving process. We all grieve differently. If you have a spouse, provide each other with grace during this time as you both will be grieving differently at the same time. Patience is vital. It is important for all of us to remember that grief is a normal human response. So, be patient not only with your spouse but yourself as well.
At this time, you are trying to deal with the internal struggle of grief and outwardly expressing it. Whether that is by crying, screaming, being silent, etc...As there is no order to grieving, there is no right or wrong way of expressing it either. Do what you need to do, when you need to do it.
There is no set time frame for grieving. We will never be the same person. Our lives changed when we became pregnant and changed again when our children passed away. So again, be patient. Give yourself grace. Take time to heal.
As you visit the numerous pages within this site, I hope that you will find the peace, hope and help you require.
