I’ve talked to y’all about Casey before. About how she inspires me. About her strength. Her faith. Her story. Casey has blogged with us before…about her biggest fear. If you missed that touching post click here.
Today’s guest post by Casey is a bit of a sensitive topic.
If you’ve been ready Casey’s blog for a little while, then you probably remember the exciting day that she announced she was expecting her third precious baby. And then you looked forward to her updates, the adorable photos of her perfect pregnant belly, her inspiring pregnant fashion, but mostly the pure love in her heart for her unborn babe. If you were reading, then like me, you knew how lucky this baby would be…to live in a home where love and faith are the governing principles.
And if you you had been reading Casey’s blog on the day she announced that she had lost her precious baby, then, like me, your heart hit the floor. Tears filled your eyes, and a part of you felt the loss in your own heart. Whether you have lost a child of your own or not, you felt some of Casey’s pain.
And while her heart was broken, Casey didn’t shrink from her pain. She wrote about it. And then she shared it with us, so we could know that we aren’t alone with our feelings…that others out there know exactly what we have been through, because they’ve been there too. And I admire her all the more for this honesty and openness. Thank you for giving us a piece of your heart Casey.
Being honest, at first, even with some tears I felt like I needed to be strong. I thought I can’t be sad…I have so much to be thankful for and people have suffered many losses like this before…Casey be strong. My mind is able to have good perspective, I know that I am blessed with 2 beautiful babies, I know we have never suffered a miscarriage before or dealt with any kind of infertility but the truth is…
