Show us your life-Moms who have lost children

This isn't how I thought my life would go...but "we plan and God laugh's" right?!?! I don't think any mom ever thinks they will be the one who would lose a child. Mark and I lost Ryder, Wyatt's identical twin brother, in May 2010. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him. As time pass and it leaves others minds it's always so raw to us. Losing a child isn't something you "get over" as time passes it's something you learn how to live with the feelings you have. You can read their birth story here.

It's been almost 2 years and it hurts my heart so bad to think there are others who have these feelings too. The feelings sometimes make me physical ill. I encourage others to remain strong. Continue to trust the Lord. He has a plan. There are steps and stages of grief...don't beat yourself up as you go through each step. Find someone to talk to...even if you don't want to. Create a journal-even schedule a time each day to mourn. I know it sounds funny and weird but it works. Cry, scream, sit in silence, but create a time to be sad-try not to let it consume everything you do every day. It's hard but it will help.

Remember God is in control, don't try to do it on your own-TRUST and lean on the Lord. He will get you through.
