  1. Hi there! Just found your blog today-and I am so glad that I did! I am going through my first miscarriage and am not finding the support I need from those around me. Reading your blogs has already proven to be very helpful! Thank you for being so honest!

  2. Hello Mandi,

    I found your blog today and wanted to pass on a short film (almost eight minutes) my daughter conceived and created. It had 20,000 hits in four days, and speaks beautifully to the loss of a baby. Please take the time to view it. God is using it and I hope you will post it. May daughter is Vanessa McKellar. https://vimeo.com/134455481

  3. Hello, Thank you for sharing your story. I have had three miscarriages in the past year. I have one beautiful little girl that I carried to term in May 2014, and everyone keeps telling me at least you have one child. I am very grateful for my little girl, but that does not cover or erase the pain from losing my three other children. Praying for God's peace, grace, and strength each day.

    1. I find comments like that ("At least you have one child" "Be grateful for the child you do have" etc.) to be so strange. I always compare it to when someone loses a parent - would you ever tell that person "Be grateful you still have one parent living"? Of course not! You can mourn the death of one one person while still cherishing the others who are living! I'm sorry you've had to deal with those comments and I will be praying for you. It sounds like your story is similar to mine with recurrent miscarriages after having your first - it's quite an unexpected shock, isn't it? I hope you find healing. God bless!

  4. Someone I know on a Catholic women's forum found out earlier this week at her 20 week scan that her (first) baby had passed. She has been in the hospital for 24 hours now, and the induction is going very, very slowly. Will you include her in your prayers?
