Kind Words.

I love having other moms I can talk to who really get it--my best friends listen and care, but they just can't understand the grief of this kind of loss because they haven't experienced it. R.

The thing that has been most helpful to me is that this is a safe, Christian community to share and heal together. I’ve been in other grief groups that honestly have just made me despair because there is no sense of hope in the group. L.

I love that it’s a supportive place to truly express how I feel and know that you’ll each understand. A.

When I joined, I was so hurt and broken hearted, and I'll admit, I felt bitter and betrayed by God. This group has helped me so much with that. I read your stories of how you grieve and still look forward to a joyful future because of Him and it is helping me reconnect my grief with my faith. The name of the group really says it all. I.

In the spring of 2006 I experienced loss for the first time when I miscarried our first baby. The emotional and physical pain was horrendous. The pregnancy had been a surprise and the unexpected nature of the loss led to much confusion. Why would God give and then take away? Had I done something wrong?

In the fall of 2008, we welcomed our second born son, Aaden Sage Proffitt. He was just 15 months younger than his big brother Andrew. I was ecstatic to be a mom of two boys who were so close in age. Brothers who would be best friends. On November 15, 2008, just shy of 6 weeks old, Aaden died in his sleep of unknown causes.

In the years since that day I’ve met thousands of hurting women just like me who tell me of their own grief and loss. Every baby matters and every story is unique. 

I understand and I’ve been there. I have been walking a journey that looked quite differently than I ever imagined. Grief never fully ends, and yet amidst the grief, amidst the loss, something remarkable has happened. I have experienced joy and hope. And I want you to know and experience that, too.

You can begin to believe that you’re never alone. You can walk this journey with hope. You can find joy even in your mourning.
