A few years ago we had a bunch of children die in our small town, right after the other, of accidents. I didn't know any of them, but my husband was on duty in the ER when a few of them came in. It was just a sad time in our town.
And so I sat down and I wrote a column called "A Prayer Through Tears", about my prayer for parents who have lost children. I received more email to that column than I did to almost any other in the years since.
It's a hard thing to lose a baby. I lost one many years ago, and it still hurts. But I have seen friends walk through miscarriages and stillbirths, and those have their own pain. You never got to hold that child that you loved so dearly. And very often the rest of the world doesn't understand how much you hurt.
I've decided to make that column into a video. If it blesses you, please send it on to other parents you know who may need it! You can read the original column here, or just watch below!
