For religious mothers of angel babies
I was emailing a friend as the baby she lost would be 1 this month. I tried to put into words feelings and thoughts about my miscarriage and how I've come to terms with it. I kinda feel like God helped me write it. When I read it over it was very encouraging and comforting to myself. I thought I'd share it to comfort any other mothers who have lost babies.
"Judaism believes that some souls are so holy they fulfill their purpose before being born. I think that maybe some souls are so sensitive and delicate that they wouldn't be able to bear the hardships of this world and so the Father takes them to spare them suffering. I sometimes find it comforting to think that my little boy will never know pain, or sorrow, or cruelty or even know evil. All he knows is holiness, love and the wonderfulness of the Father. Though it's hard to loose a baby, we were chosen to create and carry for a short time, a special life that, though not born into the world, did and still does, and always will exist and one day we'll get to meet them. Perhaps, in some way, it is a blessing to be a mother to such a special soul."
Blessings to those mothers of specials souls.
