There are many expectations that come along with a pregnancy. That the child could be lost just as he or she is entering – or about to enter – the world is not one many prospective parents want to consider. When such a tragedy does happen, those left behind may struggle to feel God’s presence, to find a way out of the darkness. In this CareNote, Carrie Williamson helps grieving parents begin to heal from their loss, urging couples to communicate openly with one another, to allow each other’s individual feelings, and to find a way to move forward without this child that is still very much a part of their family.
