Remembering Our Babies

Today is the National day of Remembrance for Pregnancy and Infant Loss. This includes all babies that have died because of miscarriage, stillbirth, SIDS or any other infant death, or a child separation as well, like our Joel. If you have lost a baby at any week in a pregnancy I would like to pray for you today and I know others would be blessed to pray for you too. Others may not know but He knows of your precious little one. It has been suggested by the National Remembrance site that we would light a candle at 7:pm in the respected time zone you are in to honor these little ones. I would invite you to leave a comment to remember your little one if you like and give as much or as little information as you like so others can pray. Here's mine:

My name is Cindy and we have had 4 miscarriages, 1993, 1997, 2007, 2008. They are precious in his sight.... and remembering our sweet Joel

For thou has possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mothers womb. I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. My substance was not hid from thee, when I was made in secret, and curiously wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there were none of them. How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them. Psalm 139

And always, forever remembering my Joel.........

My name is Anne and I have had one miscarriage, Hope (2004), and one stillborn son, Carson (2005). Thank you for remembering.

A mother's greatest desire is that her children not be forgotten...not a one of them.

Thank you!

Praying for you Cindy and remembering your little ones, and Joel today.

I am lighting a candle tonight and remembering my nephew Gabriel. He was stillborn in June of 2004. Tiniest little redheaded sweet baby angel I have ever seen.

I will say a prayer for all mother's who have lost little ones.

Lifting your family up in prayer today! I love that we are 'given' a day to just sit and simply remember the times we shared with our little ones and think about all of the other families who are 'in our shoes'. Often times I feel like the rest of the world has simply moved on without us and without our baby Liberty..but in a day like today I know people are remembering. Remembering her, remember us, remember Libby's 2 sisters and remembering the millions of other families across the world who are dealing with grief! I have decided to light my candle early.. It's a pumpkin scent candle and it so makes me think of sweet Libby since she passed away last October. I will be praying for you and your entire, beautiful family and precious Joel today!

I also wanted to extend the offer to ALL of the other families to visit my blog. I too am offering up some prayer today, so feel free to stop by my blog!

God bless you all!
Kelly..Libby's mommy forever and ever!

My name is Stephanie, and my husband and I have 3 babies in heaven. June 2000, February 2001 (a boy) and June 2001. All miscarriages. A possible 4th. The dr. said not pregnant, my test and body said otherwise. We'll see in heaven.
Remembering and praying.

Bob and Cindy Cole said...

My name is Cindy Cole and we have a baby named Robert in heaven. He was born on November 14, 2007. He was a perfectly formed baby of 15 weeks gestation. He is our ninth child and our first and only loss. We named him after my father, Robert Henry, who went to be with Jesus on April 17, 1982. He never got to see any of my children, so I know he is happy to be with little Robert.

I look forward to the day when we can all be together again. I held Robert after he was bron and told him that I would see him again someday. Thank you, Jesus, for that hope we have in you.

My name is Jaynee and we had a miscarriage in 1997. I am 11 weeks 2 days pregnant right now with our 13th little one (counting the baby we miscarried) and am on bedrest as the pregnancy is having complications. It is just amazing to me how much a mother's heart begins to love her child from the moment she finds out he/she's inside her.
I will be praying for each one who has commented today.
Thanking the Lord for the Blessed Hope we have in Jesus!

Your blog is an encouragement to me. Thanks for sharing your heart.

My name is Ashley. Our 9th child was delivered at 19 weeks on May 24th 2008. He was as precious as could be. He was our first stillborn/miscarriage. So hard to walk through and yet it has been such a sweet time with the Lord.

We love our Jeremiah! His due date is next week and my children asked if we could have a birthday party on that day. What a great idea!!

Thanks again!

Luke's Mom said...

My name is Suzi Searles, I've had 3 miscarriages in 1986, 2002 & 2005, we are blessed with 7 children. We've experienced great grief when our son Luke had a near drowning accident in 2004, he was dead for at least 40 minutes before God brought him back to life. He still is not walking or talking yet, but we hold on to hope that our Lord will completely finish healing him one day, hopefully very soon.

Love in Christ,
Suzi Searles
