Losing a little one a great mystery

Despite our loss, we are incredibly blessed

So many mothers and fathers suffer the loss of a baby through miscarriage in relative silence, and are left to heal alone. I have always thought we should support them more, and encourage them to share their stories. Little did I know that after five healthy births we would suddenly lose our sixth child during labour. Now I have a story of my own. For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
