August 19, Day of Hope

August 19th is a day to break down the walls of society that keep pregnancy, infant and child loss a hush hush subject. People view the death of a baby as just a sad thing that happened. These babies that die are not sad things that happen. They are people. Much loved and wanted children. They are brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, grandsons and granddaughters. August 19th is about openly speaking about these children and celebrating their short lives before their journey to the hands of God.

For those unaware, To Date (8/14/2012) I have suffered 5 miscarriages, and 1 stillborn.

Yes, these are all children. Precious children, all loved and wanted. That is why it is important to celebrate such a day. Celebrate their life's. Even more so, because their with the Lord, and no amount of mourning can make you miss them any less. That is why it is so important to celebrate this day. To stop the stigma of "hush hush" on the babies death. Sure, talking about it does not help, or make it hurt any less, but they should be celebrated and rejoiced, because there is not a moment they don't pop into your memory.

I love all of children, whether known, or unknown, whether male or female. Their in the Lords home. I celebrate and rejoice. I remember. Until I meet them one day again.
