One year ago, I had a miscarriage.  This miscarriage turned into a scheduled D&C… that turned into a trip to the emergency room the night before the D&C.

I learned that I had miscarried twins.

That would mean that three babies in one year went home to heaven before me.

I am here to tell you tonight, that if you struggle with miscarriage, you are absolutely not alone.

He will send you beauty and butterflies and hope.

It may not come the first day or the first week, but it will come.

The best lesson I learned was to let others help me.  His love was poured out to me in the gentle hands that reached out to me, by the sweet cards that came in the mail and by the tender understanding of friends and family.

I am Still Here and I really do feel like it is going to be ok.

I dream of them sometimes.  I still wish I could hold them in my arms.  I still really, really don’t like walking past the Target baby section.

But I have gotten to the point where I can rejoice for my friends who are expecting.

If this is something you struggle with, I’d be honored to pray for you.

Love and Hugs to you,

Kate
