I am so, so sorry for your loss. I will definitely keep you and your family in my prayers...
God bless,


After four of our children went forward into Heaven, three of them while still in the womb; all I can pray for you is God's power to wash over your family. I hesitated to even mention our situation, but shared grief often heals the broken heart when it's welcomed with arms stretched toward Heaven with your name lifted up. His love and being has also never been more real to me than in recent years. His grace is enough, and He will explain all of this one day; I believe that. God bless.

Oh Kerry, I'm so SO sorry. Oh such heartache again. It IS hard to understand. Lots of prayers and hugs. One day at a time. Oh how I long for the day where there will be no more suffering. I'm so sorry.

God comfort you and wrap His loving arms around you during this time of your loss. You can sit on God's lap and tell your Heavenly Father all about it as you receive His comfort and love, and wipes those tears away. I'm reminded of the 4 times we've gone through this with our daughter's miscarriages. We are thankful for the one beautiful and whole daughter He has blessed them and us with. Praying she and you will be blessed with more children to love! Prayers!

I'm so sorry, my dear Sister.

I feel the Holy Presence of the Lord so strongly as I read your words.

Please know that you have an extended family out here praying for you as you & Scott walk this journey.

Words seem empty..... Just know I care.

Love from NC.


Kerry, there aren't words. You are loved and lifted to Jesus.

My words are much as J.B. with exception of no child outside the womb, however raising 2 lil ones for three yrs then having to walk away & return home with NO chance of seeing them again is tough too. Kerry & Scott ~ May God lift you both & carry you thru this journey. I'm not sure I should even write this but one thing that did help me (later on) was when ppl would say "You could always adopt." And it is TRUE...
Hope to see more blogs written but also understand the time needed away :)



I know there ae no words that can ease the pain you are feeling. I will be lifting you and Scott up in prayer.

In Christ's love,



I'm so sorry. I'm praying for you all. Sweet blessings on you as you go through this.


I am so sorry, praying for you.


Kerry -

You and Scott will be in my prayers. I am so sorry for your loss,

So sorry for your family's loss. Praying for you in Indiana


My heart breaks for you. Please know that I am praying for healing, comfort, encouragement, and buckets full of grace for your family. Life is so hard. I'm thankful that you know Jesus -- it would be ever so much harder without Him.



I am so sorry. I will pray that the Lord will comfort you through this time.

Thank you for what you wrote on suffering and hope. It touched my heart and was a comfort to me.



Kerry, my heart aches for you. Please know you are loved. Praying for you and your family.
Psalm 143:8
Let the morning bring me word of your
unfailing love, for I have put my trust
in you. Show me the way I should go,
for to you I lift up my soul.



:( Oh Kerry! It is too much. I am so so sorry, once again, for your loss. It just seems so unfair. Are you still on for Sanibel? I hope you are able to relax and heal and ... rest. Love from all of us....

I am so sad for you and your family. I will be praying for you.


I am so sorry for your lose and yet can't blieve how healing your sharing is for me. "Faithful is He Who began a good work in you...to complete it!"



I, as other's have shared, have no words that will bring you the healing comfort I would so want to bring to you. I have prayed for you all, and, will continue to do so.

May God's loving Hands be carrying you all through the coming days.


Dear Kerry,
I'm sad and sorry for you today. Praying for you as you walk thru this loss again. Thinking of you and your baby...

Thanks, Kerry for letting us in to share this road you are on. I am amazed and reminded as you relate the dream given you, a promise I count on from the Psalms that 'no sudden terror will overtake'us. God lovingly and gently prepared your spirit for the breaking news. I am also impressed on reading, that you (and others) are granted such an abundance of tears, as if to fill up the void of tears of those unable to cry for whatever reason(callus'd hearts, wounded spirits,....whatever). Thank you for the tenderness of heart you work to keep. We will ease, as best we can, per prayers for you and the family. Blessings in the weeks to come.

"Blessed be the Name of the Lord" holds so much meaning on so many levels for those who know their God and know this life's deep sufferings.... and it is obvious to me and anyone reading this post how well you know your God. I was very moved by your faith and by your pain as I read this entry.

Thank you for remembering your first Love in the midst of your loss and being a light on a hill for all to see. I know the Lord delights in your offering of a contrite and broken spirit. I pray fervently that He will encourage you each and every minute as you pass through this dark valley and He will remind you of His loving-kindness as He tenderly restores the broken pieces of your heart and molds you into an ever-increasing reflection of Himself.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss... of a child and of the dream of how this child would add to your earthly family.

I would like to send you a gift, which probably sounds weird coming from a stranger(even another sister in Christ). But when I lost my baby at 8 wks to miscarriage in 2006, the Lord also gave me a dream similar to yours. I had to have a DNC done and as I was waking from the anesthesia, I was partly awake and yet still in "dream world". My husband and my mother were holding my hands as I told them what I was seeing. I saw Jesus laughing and playing in what seemed to be Heaven. And there was some kind of form(blurry and moving around) there too that somehow I knew was a child... my baby, although she was not a baby anymore. Even though I was unable to clearly identify the form, I also somehow knew my child was a girl. It was THE most REAL experience I've had in all my life. I kept repeating to my husband, "I'm so happy, I'm not sad anymore. She's with Him! I'm so happy".

Still to this day, I remember it like it was 5 minutes ago. Even coming home from the hospital that day, I did not shed one tear for the next 24 hrs. because I had so clearly seen with my eyes the reality of the Heavenly realm and an amazing vision of my Lord and Savior playing and laughing with my daughter. Like you, there was NO denying the significance of every life created by the Father, even when that life is not lived on this earth.

The gift I would like to give you is the drawing I did over the next few days after my dream. To the best of my ability I drew the picture I saw of Jesus playing with a little girl in the heavenly clouds. I have the original framed in my bedroom but made copies before it was mounted. I truly felt the Lord gave me that vision to capture in a drawing that I might share it and minister to others.

Please let me know how I might send this to you. Praying for you from a sister in Christ in IL.
