I am so sorry, but I’m going to have to stop blogging for a while. So many of you feel like family to me and it has been such a consolation to have you around during this terrible time. I’ve also been encouraged by the surprising number of people who have gained consolation themselves by reading what I had written.

However, although I am feeling some measure of peace over Innocent’s death, I am still “in the middle” of everything, still carrying his body within mine. Thus I am more vulnerable than usual.

Wednesday I received a very cruel letter, deliberately mean, about my reaction to Innocent’s death. The writer thought it was unacceptable that I had not “gotten over it” yet and thought it was inappropriate for me to be sharing of myself publicly. They even questioned my motives for being pregnant in the first place.

So as to protect myself for a while, I will not be blogging. I am still available by email and would love to hear from any of you. I am not saying goodbye forever, just until I am strong enough to stand up for myself again.

  1. I hope this “break” will be healing and restorative for you. As for the letter-writer, what business is it of theirs what you post, or what you do in your personal life? The effrontery of some people is amazing.
    Continuing to pray for all of you.


  2. I can't believe someone would ever send you something like that. I pray for them and for you. When I had my miscarriage I was told some hurtful things myself. I prayed to understand why they would say those things and told God not to be angry with them because they didn't understand the pain that only a mother can feel.


  3. I am a new reader but I am deeply sorry for your loss and the cruelty you experienced. May the Lord bless and keep you safe, strengthen you with His Holy Spirit, and heal you both body and soul.


  4. Take care of yourself. Do what you need, you are very much in transition and may be for a while. Thank you so much more than I could every express for what you have shared here. You owe us nothing. Our prayers are with you and your family.
