Heavens Sweet Babies Blog Hop

             Hello Everyone,
              Hope every one is doing well today.
              Today we are supporting Jessica our HIMCR sister and her sweet little
                 angles. We would also like you to hop to support all women who have
                 had a Miscarriage. I hope that you would hop along with me to honor
                 these women and their sweet angles. You may know a mom, friend or
                 you may have had a Miscarriage.
              Here are some facts about Miscarriage & a link for American
              Pregnancy Association for more information.
            Miscarriage is the most common type of pregnancy loss, according to
               the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).
               Studies reveal that anywhere from 10-25% of all clinically recognized
               pregnancies will end in miscarriage. Chemical pregnancies may
               account for 50-75% of all miscarriages.This occurs when a pregnancy
               is lost shortly after implantation, resulting in bleeding that occurs
               around the time of her expected period. The woman may not realize
               that she conceived when she experiences a chemical pregnancy.
           Most miscarriages occur during the first 13 weeks of pregnancy.
               Pregnancy can be such an exciting time, but with the great number
               of recognized miscarriages that occur, it is beneficial to be informed
               about miscarriage, in the unfortunate event that you find yourself or
               someone you know faced with one.
           Don’t forget there are support groups
 What Makes A Mother
I thought of you and closed my eyes
And prayed to God today
I asked, "What makes a Mother?"
And I know I heard him say
A Mother has a baby
This we know is true
But, God, can you be a mother
When your baby's not with you?

Yes, you can he replied
With confidence in his voice
I give many women babies
When they leave it is not their choice
Some I send for a lifetime
And others for the day
And some I send to feel your womb
But there's no need to stay.
I just don't understand this God
I want my baby here

He took a breath
and cleared his throat
And then I saw a tear
I wish I could show you
What your child is doing Here
If you could see your child smile
With other children and say
"We go to earth to learn our lessons
of love and life and fear,
but My mommy loved me so much
I got to come straight here!"
I feel so lucky to have a Mom who
had so much love for me
I learned my lessons very quickly
My Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much
But I visit her each day
When she goes to sleep
On her pillow is where I lay
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek
And whisper in her ear
"Mommy, Please don't be sad today
I'm your baby and I am here"
So you see my dear sweet one
Your children are okay
Your babies are here in My home
And this is where they'll stay
They'll wait for you with Me
Until your lessons there are through
And on the day that you come home
they'll be at the gates waiting for you
So now you see
What makes a Mother
It's the feeling in your heart
It's the love you had so much of
Right from the very start

Thanks for this beautiful hop. One of the most helpful things I experienced in losing the three precious angels I lost, was the comfort that came from other women who had also lost babies. God has used my tragic loss to be a blessing and comfort to other women over the years. I will always miss my babies, but I appreciate a hop that helped me remember them with a smile. Thanks for the encouragement.
