Baby Angel Grace/Cradled in Heaven

January 25, 2010 by Audreys · 1 Comment 

In an effort to provide a forum setting for parents who have lost babies to talk/ask questions/provide insight to other parents/etc., we decided it would be a good idea to create a page for the Baby Angel Grace site on Facebook.

You are probably wondering why we use both Baby Angel Grace and Cradled in Heaven.  Even if you are not, I feel the need to explain. 

I distinctly remember a conversation I had with my husband Scott while standing in our kitchen a few weeks after Katelyn died.  After searching online and in the library for any information on stillbirth, we came up empty.  The only library books available were on Miscarriage and Abortion, and the only online resources didn’t give any helpful information for grieving parents.  Sure there is some ‘medical information’ out there, but if you are like us and have been told that there was no ‘medical reason’ for your baby’s death, then that information is pretty much useless to you as well.

We knew that we couldn’t be the only parents alive who suffered the loss of a child, so it was at that moment that we decided to create a website in Katelyn’s memory with the intent to share our story and with the hope that we could help other parents who also had a loss.   

To make a long story short, we bought the domain name of Baby Angel Grace from one provider, but the site was limited in functionality.  In the meantime, 2 wonderful men in our church volunteered to perform the initial set-up of the site with their company.  The only problem was trying to get the URL back.  So, we created  Now, we have both of them pointing to the same site. 

My point in telling you all of this is that we would feel privileged if you would not only become a fan on the Facebook page, but also if you would share your story and your baby’s birth date so that we can remember them on the special day they went to meet Jesus each and every year.  

I would like to leave you today with a verse that came to mind.

In John Chapter 16, verse 33, Jesus gave this promise to His disciples “I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”  

Pray for Parents of Stillborn Babies on Facebook

 As each day passes, we are amazed at the amount of people who visit this website.  More often than not it is because they have also lost a child.  Whether it is due to a miscarriage, a stillbirth, or an early infant death, we all have one thing in common – we are living without at least one of our children. 

There are so many websites out there that claim to “research stillbirth” and, of course, want financial donations.  There are others that claim their products can actually “prevent stillbirth”.  Interesting, to say the least.

My prayer is that you avoid these websites as we have.  A majority of the time, there is no medical reason for babies who are stillborn.  All the research in the world would not have prevented Katelyn’s death, and millions of others.  There are so many wonderful people that we have met through Katelyn’s site, and in my heart I know they believe the same about their sweet little babies. 

I was on Facebook the other day and it hit me; why don’t we start a cause for parents of stillborn babies.  Our mission is absolutely, positively not to request donations.  We just want to demonstrate our faith in the power of prayer, and make everyone aware that parents of stillborn children need prayer.  I have to admit that there have been more days than not when I relied on prayer to get me through them. 

There is also one other reason why we started a cause on Facebook.  There are so many mothers and fathers all over the world that have lost a child and yet have not been on our website.  For those who are gracious enough to share the stories of their little babies with us, we want to post their stories of faith and healing on our site.  After all, the site is not just about Katelyn and stillbirth – it is about every other baby who was either born in Heaven, or left us before we were ready to let them go. 

God Bless everyone who joins our cause and shares the message of hope and healing that we can only receive through Jesus Christ.   It is only through prayer that we can truly help parents who have lost children.  Besides, in Matthew Chapter 18, verses 19 and 20, Jesus promised, “Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.”   What more could we ask for?

We would be blessed if you could join our Cause on Facebook via the following link:
