In October 2016, seven ladies came together for our first ‘Loved’ Miscarriage Healing Day in Lincoln. We shared our stories of the loss of our babies, and talked about the ways in which our miscarriages had affected our lives. We looked at emotions such as anger, guilt, sorrow, forgiveness and acceptance but took time too to reflect on all that our babies had meant to us, and we reminded ourselves that they are remembered and loved by us and by God, and that we too are loved.
Although there was lots of sadness, there was also joy and laughter, and delicious food! An amazing day ended with a time of prayer and reflection which culminated in a release of balloons, symbolising our belief that we can trust God with our sadness, and that our babies are in his presence.
“I feel like I have had time to breathe, to remember and reflect. To see where God has been through it all. I feel more peaceful than I ever have….Thank you!”
