Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day: I too am a statistic.

I have been pregnant three times, but only have two children. I am a “statistic.” One in four pregnancies end in miscarriage and 1 in 160 babies are stillborn or die within 30 days of birth.

Today, October 15, 2015, marks Pregnancy and Infant Loss Day. So many women and families suffer in silence, paralyzed with guilt and sadness.

A life is a life, whether you are 6 weeks pregnant, 26 weeks pregnant, or 6 months postpartum.

To all of my families who unfortunately have become a “statistic”, know, that  my thoughts are with you and that God doesn’t make any mistakes.

God bless you all.
