I am a 25 yr old mother of two year old twins. I have been married for almost 4 yrs. I am a stay at home mama & wife. I have kidney disease. I love my family more with every new day I am given by the grace of God. I don't have many friends but am extremely close with my mama.
About my Loss:
Three years ago this march I lost my first son. He passed away after birth due to very rare heart and kidney problems. I've tried dealing w/ the loss on my own and I can't. My youngest brother just got deployed to afghanistan a little over a week ago. I have been terrified of losing more people in my life since the loss of my son. So now w/ my brother, I am already overwhelmed w/ grief. I can't eat or stop crying out of fear. I am also 4 1/2 months pregnant w/ my fourth son so I need to be strong and healthy for him. I just need help.

the second way is through our forum, http://anchoredbyhope.lefora.com/ we are just starting out, so it's easier to keep up with everyone there.
the third way is through the live online support meetings. Just go to the main website and email us through that, and we can give you more info on those too. I think you would really benefit from the study. I know it changed my life. It gave me a clearer vision of which direction i wanted to go. But in the meanwhile, you can still keep in touch with us through the blogs, which I definately recommend you make one of those.
I'm glad to share those sites with you. This was really going to just be an outlet for me to direct people to the sites that my dear friend Katy and I manage together. The best 3 places to connect with other moms (including katy and I) is through: http://butterflymommies.blogspot.com/ - which is a directory of mothers who have lost children, all by different ages gestationally from early on to many days or weeks after birth. This might be a way for you to start collecting entries for a book,
I lost both of my parents (mom when I was ten, dad when i was 22), and two children during pregnancy. I definately understand the things that can trigger grief, especially during a pregnancy after a loss. I was a complete mess for the nine months I was pregnant for my last child. Suddenly the fun & naivity of not knowing got replaced with every possible 'what if'. Keep in touch... Lovingly in Christ, Kristie
Hi Miriam, I wanted to tell you that I am happy to keep in touch. In fact, if you would like, one of my close friends and I have a site where we host live online grief support Bible studies, and also this March we'll be starting our first live online monthly support group. We have a forum, just for pregnancy and infant loss, plus we each have our own blogs and links to other women's blogs that are all about losses of varying stages. Let me know what you are interested in and I can send you those specific links, otherwise if you would just like to explore those things, our site is www.anchoredbyhope.com
