Grieving A Miscarriage

I know there are many women who have experienced a miscarriage(s), and having gone through 2 myself, I can relate to things you may have or might be feeling. Grieving is a natural process and many women, myself included, aren't really sure how to grieve the loss of such a new gift. After doing some research and praying, I feel like reading one of these books might be of great help to me and many of you as well. If you have read any of these or have any recommendations, please let us know! I am considering hosting a weekly blog devotion together if I find the right book and people are interested. There are many more books than these two at www.christianbook.com.Grieving the Child I Never Knew by Kathe WunnenbergSilent Grief by Clara Hinton “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart..." Jeremiah 1:5

  1. I hope these books help. I am so, so sorry for your loss. I'm sort of in your same boat, only mine is dealing with infertility. And I feel like that second book, "Silent Grief" might be good for me. Because we (my husband and I) are dealing with it all silently. I know at some point we will tell friends but right now we're just trying to figure out things. And you're right, it is difficult. But I will pray for you as you begin these books and we can stand firm on the fact that our God is a good God and He loves us and He does have a plan for us. Even if we don't really understand the reason for our grief right now. XOXO

  5. Hi...I found you actually from the comment you left for Ashley above. (The wonder of the internet!)

    I know what you are going through. I had one myself, but the Lord also blessed me with three beautiful children.

    It's hard to wait for His time, but He always has a plan.

    My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11.
    "'For I know the plans I have for you' declares the Lord. 'Plans for good and not for evil. To give you a future and a hope.'"

    I'll add you to my prayers. I can tell you'll make a wonderful mother.

  6. Hi,

    I just wanted to say that I am so proud of you (though I don't know you) for writing about this on your blog. (I read all three posts under this label). I know it is so painful to face and to share, but I know there are so many who can benefit from your words. I have not faced a miscarriage, but I am diabetic and have several "issues" that are a bit of a cause for concern. But, like you said, everything is in the Lord's hands and in His time. I also struggle with accepting this, as my husband and I live three hours apart at the time, and I pray daily for God's guidance in our situation. I'll pray for you as well. xo

  7. Hi, I'm just reading these again. Since my last comment (just above!!), my husband and I are living together again. Yay! Sadly, we faced an ectopic pregnancy a couple weeks ago, and it made me think of you and this post. Anyway, I'm not even sure why I'm commenting, except to say thanks again for sharing. It's a comfort to know others understand. (I blogged about mine too, under the label "ectopic pregnancy".) I hope you and your husband are doing well! xo
