Healing?

Postby twolfgram » Mon Aug 02, 2004 09:39 am

I'm not sure if this is God's way of helping us to heal or what, but something dawned on me today and I wanted to share it with you all. Erik died on 12/18/02 and I delivered him on 12/20/02. We had been trying to get pg again for a long time, I used the OPK and discovered I was ovulating on 12/20/03 and got pg, exactly one year to the day I delivered him. Now, we're scheduled for a c-section on 8/18/04, one year and 8 months, to the day, he died. Coincidence? I'm not so sure. I feel so good about this! Maybe I'm grasping at straws, but I can't help but think for every death there is a life - thanks for listening!

Therese,
What a great perspective to take! I hope all goes perfectly with your c-section and that you have a beautiful and healthy boy.

I beleive god does these things for a reason. I lost a baby on May 3rd last year and my due date was NOv 13th. And in Oct I found out I was preg. and lost that one on Nov 13th. Freaky huh. I think this is Gods way for you to remember the other baby.

That is a wonderful perspective to take. I take comfort in the knowing that my precious little girl was loved more in the 6 1/2 months that I carried her than many kinds will ever be (which is a shame, every child deserves love).

I do believe that God works in mysterious ways. He gives us little bits to hold onto, even when the worst has happened to us.

Wishing you all the joy in the world with your little one. Can't wait to hear about your baby in your arms.
