Someone asked me about the class I was in the other Sunday at church saying, “How’s your class going?”
I looked at her startled…I didn’t know I was in school again? (Other than my normal homeschooling duties where I am learning much!)
Then she reminded me that we are helping facilitate a group for parents who have experienced a baby/infant loss.
Oh, that class…
Since then many others have asked so I thought I would give you an update:
The class (from my perspective) has been wonderful. It is the perfect size to be safe for folks to share their hurts and I truly believe that healing is taking place for many of the people in our group.
It’s like we have said so many times (and will say again), you will never get over your loss (or under it or around it), but you will get through it. And having the support of a group of people who have experienced the loss of a baby/infant is wonderful.
We still have three weeks of meeting and sharing and loving on each other and I have to say…I am excited. This has been a group that we all felt we needed and the people attending have been brave enough to open up about their griefs. To be able to be real and to share with others is truly a gift from God.
So thank you to all who have been praying for our group, please continue to do so. We will meet three more times before Thanksgiving. I am excited to see what God will do in and through it all!
