Hi. I was wondering if you could direct me to any blogs of families who follow the quiverfull philosophy but have also experienced recurrent miscarriage. Specifically I am looking for people who are in a situation where they have lost more babies than they have living but they continue to TTC [trying to conceive]. I have had a hard time finding anything of the sort, and that is my situation (1 living baby, 3 miscarriages) and it would be encouraging to read about the stories of others who have been in my shoes and continue to TTC. It seems like most people in my situation give up
We had a stillborn daughter and two miscarriages, so we do understand the sorrow of losing a child you never knew, though we have also been blessed with plenty of living children to soften the grief. I’m sure you realize – at least in your head – that it’s better for a soul to praise God for all eternity, than never have lived. Your children are temporarily lost to you, but they are with God already and you’ll live with them forever soon enough.
But that doesn’t make it easy now, does it?
I know some of our readers are in the same boat. I’m hoping they’ll speak up with an encouraging word for you.
