I am so sorry. My prayers and wishes and thoughts and good everything go out to you right now. Bless you all.

I'm painfully aware that words won't help your sorrow at such a devastating loss but wanted to say how sorry I am that your family have had to endure this. Take good care.


In 1 Cor. 1:13 it says that God is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort and I pray He surrounds you with His love and peace right now - I can't even imagine the pain you are all in and I pray the Lord is so evident in the upcoming days - I'm praying for you all.


You are wrapped up in love.


John and Debra...There are no words to express my deep sorrow. No words to ease the pain, but I share a little story of 12 years ago... as I came out of an operating room after losing my second child and saw my sister's eyes full of grace and love. She said, "God has really blessed you." I gave a weak smile and said "funny I don't feel blessed." She just squeezed my hand. I know she meant Taelor and Ally, but as time goes on I realize she was my blessing at that moment and many other tragic times in my life...as you have been my blessings. I still miss my babies and I know you will always miss yours...I'm glad you have each other, your children, your family, your friends, your faith. I'm blessed that you are my family. I weep with you. I mourn with you. And I love you.

I'm so sorry -- I am in tears. I can see beauty and grace in this post, though, and I trust you soon will feel the everlasting arms underneath that we know are there sometimes by faith alone.


I am so sorry for you and wish I could make it better. Love, tears and prayers, Kathi


Thank you for sharing this. I am holding your family in my heart. Your words have opened up something about Jesus and faith that has been closed down in me for several years. I sit here in tears surrounded by the mystery of it all.

bless you


I am so sorry. I know you wanted this so much. Prayers and faith.


I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Debra and John,
You have touched my heart with yours. We will be lifting you before the Giver of comfort, peace and love. We love you all.
Love and prayers,
Gloria and Bill


May our Lord continue to lift you up in this time of sorrow. Thank you both for sharing. I am sure that you have touched many hearts with the story of your loss, your love and your faith.


I'm so sorry ... I'll be praying for you both and for your little one.


How beautiful your husband's words and his love for you.

John and Debra, having had two miscarriages of our own, we know the grief you feel. Pain will subside giving way to hope that one day we will see our children in heaven. John, a song by Mercy Me called "Bring the rain" has broughtr me comfort lately and I think you would like it. Know that you and Debra are in our prayers. May the Lord give you peace and comfort in these coming days. We love you guys and hope to see you soon.

we love you. that was very moving and as i was reading i couldn't help but think it sounded somewhat confessional and freeing. i hope.


Beautiful people, my heart goes out to you at this sad time.


thank you for sharing, we also just lost our baby - on labor day (it would have been our third too)... i wish i had the strength that it sounds like you have...i had to only skim your post so that i did cry, but i know that i will want to come back and read it again...may the lord continue to strengthen you and hold you through this difficult time...thank you again for sharing

When this happened to me and our family, the song I kept singing was "I Will Praise You in This Storm." I'm so sorry for your loss, but glad that you do have hope and faith to sustain you.


oh, my sweet friends. how beautiful your words though they be written in a time of such sorrow. i admire your hearts, your desire to seek Christ in all things, and your love for one another. as i sit here, cheeks still tear stained, i am smiling because i know that you are resting in His love and that you are comforted by One now that many will sadly never know. thank you for being willing to share your unadultarated emotions, for your transparency, so that those of us reading might be blessed and look to our Lord... and maybe even be reminded of the beauty in our own spouses that we sometimes fail to see. we love you deeply.


May God continue to bless your family during this time. We pray for peace and comfort. Your words were an encouragement of how God loves his church, even when things seem to fall apart. God Bless.


We are so sorry about your loss. What a beautiful written expression of emotion this post was. Praying for your family!


the loving, soothing, calming hand of God!

At times like these words like "I'm sorry" seem so shallow. Hold tight to God's hand. He has His grip on you and won't ever let go. You are in my prayers.


Your strength in such a dark time is so amazing and beautiful. I'm very sorry for your loss and I will pray for you and your family.


You and your family are in my prayers this morning. Thank you for opening your heart and sharing this sad moment. You have shown another moment of grace and strength yourself. You are love personified!!

Heather Thorp

So deeply honoured you felt you could share... weeping and praying with you...much love...


This post written with raw emotion brought me to tears. I am so very sorry for your loss and will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

thank you. My husband & I experienced (suffered?, Had?, tolerated?) 6 miscarriages in 3 yrs. (20 yrs ago). We saw and felt the hand of God in our misery. Thank you for putting in words what we felt.


I don't think I stumbled onto your blog by accident. I lost my second baby September 3rd.
Your husband's words are beautiful and I know if my husband blogged he would be saying the same exact things.
I'm glad you have Jesus to help you through this.
Thanks for posting such personal blogs for strangers like me to read.
May God hold you tight during these hard times.


I cried as I read this. It took me back to my own time, and made me wonder when our daughter will stop asking about "the baby that died in my tummy". She was just three, and it has been three years, but she brings it up every few weeks. I know one day she will not remember, and that is good ... but I will never forget. I think of my baby often, remembering its perfect body but no beat. I know that it happens for a reason, but it is not a comfort. The only comfort is the arms of your family, and the little lives you already have made. Take care, grieve for your loss and live for your loves.

I just read this post right now, and just wanted to send my love.
I had a miscarriage in July, and i understand the deep pain that you are feeling.
Sending you warm wishes so that you may all heal your hearts..


Deb, this has me in tears, because, as you know, I know this pain so well, and so fresh. I am so strengthened and blessed by your husband's words about your grace and your faith. Thank you for taking a moment to stop by my blog and let me know that you had been through this as well. there is comfort in knowing you are not alone.

The light of Christ shines through you, even in this hard, hard time.
