A Lament For Our Lost Baby

In August we’re expecting the birth of our new baby. We’re so excited and thankful to God.

And yet we grieve the two babies that we lost through miscarriage.

We were meant to have a baby this month. He/she(?) was due around now. We had a couple of scans. One week we saw our baby with a beating heart, the next week we saw our baby and their heart was still.

We’re sorry we never got the chance to meet you, precious one.
We don’t understand why it happened.
We miss you. We remember you. We love you.

“See, I will create
    new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
    nor will they come to mind.
 But be glad and rejoice for ever
    in what I will create,
for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight
    and its people a joy.
I will rejoice over Jerusalem
    and take delight in my people;
the sound of weeping and of crying
    will be heard in it no more.

‘Never again will there be in it
    an infant who lives but a few days

–  Isaiah 65:17-20

      Thanks for your comment, Cait. We wanted to share because we think it’s important for Christians to be able to talk about these things openly and to be able to express confusion and sorrow. It’s also a wonderful section of Isaiah which God has really used to bring us comfort – we wanted others to make the connection between miscarriage and these verses too.
