“Dear sister, I am so sorry you are now a part of a sorority that no one ever wants to be in. The loss group. Since you’ve found us, you have probably experienced what one in four women do. Miscarriage, still birth, and/or infant loss. Navigating your grief may be extremely difficult to go through. While you may feel like you are alone, please know you aren’t. I too am a loss mom. I made a promise years ago that my babies’ lives had a purpose, no matter how short the time I had with them. By helping other loss moms, I know God has fulfilled Karalynn’s life and death within me. Here I want you to feel like you have a safe haven to vent, cry, and grieve however long it may take. There is no timeline. We want you to know you are loved, understood, and we acknowledge your loss. We want to help you weather the storm you’re in and fill the deep gaping wound that death has left with Jesus’ love, hope for a better tomorrow, and a sense of camaraderie. We love you.”
