You may remember my mention of a family whose baby was dying of a genetic disease. Baby A entered the presence of Jesus and will not have to experience the pain and suffering this world brings.
Baby A was perfect, despite the weakness of his disease. “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” — 2 Corinthians 12:9
Baby A was precious. “But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” — Matthew 19:14
Baby A had purpose. “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” — Romans 8:28
I watched his mom from a distance and also at the funeral. Her beautiful acceptance and peaceful countenance were a testimony of God’s grace flowing through her life.
Losing your baby is a mother’s worst nightmare. Everyone’s lives go on, but you’re the one who carried your baby, who cuddled and loved your baby and now weeps with empty arms.
Those who have lost a baby know the deep pain and anguish of your soul. When you have another child, you feel so blessed, yet none can replace the child you lost. You have to work through your fears and learn to rest.
This is just a post to say we care, we love you, and we hurt with you.
Baby A, you have one amazing mom. She loved you like no one else could, and we’re praying for her as she now walks a new road.
I know Baby A’s mom would be very blessed if any of you left her a comment below.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and
wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works;
and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14
