Mom’s Raw Post Shows What You REALLY Lose When You Have a Miscarriage

You missed her honor roll report card.

You missed his first crush.

You missed her daddy-daughter dance.

You missed the excitement on his face when his dad took him for his first drive.

You missed wedding dress shopping.

You missed watching your son become a dad.

You missed your first, second and last grandchild being born.

A whole generation, a whole lifetime of memories, gone … The instant your baby’s heart stopped beating.

People will tell you you were lucky you were early. But I know and you know … A baby in the womb is still a baby. They are the same person, no matter how developed they are or not.

So when you grieve, you not only grieve for the weeks you had your baby and then lost … You grieve for all the days and all the memories you’ll never get to have.

For all you mamas reading this longing for the babies you will never hold in your arms on this earth, my heart is with you. Your loss is IMMENSE—and your grief is warranted, your child’s life was precious, and I’m praying for you! Thank you, Rachel Lewis, for giving words to this pain so many mothers feel!

If you know a friend who needs to read this today, I hope you will share with them! <3
