Rock and Walk

“I am no victim, I live with a vision. I’m covered by the force of love.”

Many of you know CJ and I lost our first child in 2014. Few know that this month I miscarried for the second time. 

Although this has caused confusion, sadness, frustration and many more emotions, there is and always has been something very clear to me. I have no control of what happens, what we go through is building us up for the end game of this life. This pain sucks, and I’m not happy about it, but God knows what He is doing and I trust Him.

“He is my Father, I do not wonder if His plans for me are good, if He’ll come through like He should. ‘Cause He is provision and enough wisdom to usher in my brightest days, to turn my mourning into praise.”

I want to celebrate my children and remember them in a way that will help others through similar pain. March 3rd, I’m participating in the Rock and Walk to raise funds for families who have experienced pregnancy and infant loss. The heart of this walk is to let bereaved families know that they are not alone. This walk will raise funds to support them, and build community awareness about pregnancy and infant loss. My goal is to raise $350. 

This loss is so fresh for me and brings up many emotions from my last miscarriage. But I’m walking in this for you, your friends and family who have experienced this kind of loss, for the families in need of support, for my mom, grandmothers, sister-in-law, friends, and for CJ and I.
