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?
