Today I received a comment from a reader that really touched my heart. Her experience when confronting the Lord on the pain of pregnancy loss is really beautiful. I will share it here with you.
Thank you, Theresa, for sharing your story with us.
Hi! I am also a Catholic mother. I used to homeschool my kids, but since I am now a single mother, I don’t have that option. I enjoy and appreciate your blog, and just wanted to let you know not to stop.
By the way, I also have “little saints of the womb” in Heaven. I have Lupus, so I have lost 9 of my 14. I was angry at God for such a long time. Then, while on Cursillo, I confronted God while in Adoration, and told Him it wasn’t fair to take the babies I WANTED while so many women who don’t want their babies abort them. In my innermost soul, I heard Him say, “You are right, it’s not fair. What if I trade you My One for your nine?” I realized at that moment that He had done that for me before I even asked, before I even knew to ask, and in that moment, my anger and grief melted away, and in its place, while there was still a lingering sadness, there was joy in knowing that He had chosen the best possible thing for me AND for my babies. But, He also knew I would love and want them, and He gave them to me the same as the others: for however long I get to have them here with me.
Thank you for allowing me to share, my dear.
In His Love.
