And unfortunately, I have been learning that this “club” is even more huge and more vast than I ever could have imagined. If you haven’t experienced miscarriage yourself, I can guarantee you that you know someone(and probably multiple) people who have.
Here are two really helpful articles with tips on how to treat and talk to a woman who has experienced a miscarriage:
Six Ways to Support a Woman Through Miscarriage
I know it feels like a lot to remember and in this day and age it feels like there isn’t anything you can say without it offending somebody. So I would just encourage everyone to pick one or two things TO say and file away the things to definitely NOT say and otherwise not stress too much over it.
Luckily, I have been so crazy blessed by the people that surround me. My family. My best friends. My church. Even the message boards and blog communities that I am a part of. They have all reached out to me in the most caring and delicate way. They have shown me how much I am loved, how much they are grieving with me over my babies too, and how much they are interceding for me before the throne of Christ.
That being said, I am still carrying a boat load of hurt. A huge weight, sadness, and burden of knowing I will never get to hold those children this side of heaven. And that breaks my heart. But, being a month beyond the initial loss now, the time passing has helped a small amount. I’m not crying as much as I was and my body has moved back to it’s regularly scheduled programming. Which actually helps, surprisingly. I can only hope and pray as more time passes that the hurt won’t always feel so raw, the pain always so fresh, and the tears won’t always be brimming.
