So, now it's mid-December and it has been about three months since we lost our precious Avery. We are still grieving and recognize a part of us will always be grieving. It has been an incredibly difficult season for us, and at the same time, I can see the Lord’s hand with us at each turn. Our friends and family have been incredible, and I’m so thankful for each of them. We have found our own ways to keep honoring Avery, and this blog is one of them. We also had the most precious stocking made for Avery, which was so meaningful to me. It is important to me to remember and have Avery continue to be a part of our family. Avery was a child that God gave us for a time and for a reason, and I refuse to forget that. So, yes, we will be that strange family that actually TALKS about our miscarriage. It’s so rare to hear people talk about it, which is ridiculous since more than 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. That is SO many people, yet there is such pressure for silence around this issue.
So, here is to remembering, to sharing, to breaking that silence, to having conversations, to supporting one another, to loving deeply even for a short time, and to reuniting with our precious little one in Heaven one day.
