Connie, I'm so sorry too. Don't give up. Our young neighbors had a miscarriage last year and she is due now any minute - a healthy boy. Hope things go well very soon. Glad you will all be together.

May I offer one small piece of advice? Never, ever minimize the loss by saying to someone who has miscarried or suffered a still birth that they "can always try again." Such a loss is often as heartfelt and tragic for the parents as the death of any child. I don't mean to suggest in any way that you've done that or that you ever would, but it's extremely important to understand and appreciate the depth of suffering that accompanies such an event. Hold your daughter-in-law and son, love them, mourn with them, and let them know you understand.

The "big guy" may always know best, and indeed most spontaneous abortions are probably because of some problem that either would have prevented the fetus from surviving full-term or would have resulted in severe birth defects, but please remember that such homilies are of no comfort to someone who has lost a child and is wondering how a just God could be so cruel.

No one in that horrible situation wants the hear that it was "for the best"; they just want to cry. Don't try to explain it away, just feel their pain.

I am really sorry Constance. I hope the weekend provides lots of love and hope to your family. Not sure that I would attend a family function after that. Dont be surprised if they dont show up. How sad, but at least they are going to try again.
