The definition of miscarriage is: the expulsion of a fetus from the womb before it is able to survive independently, especially spontaneously or as the result of accident.
That definition does not even begin to explain miscarriage.
A better definition would be: empty.
A miscarriage does not only leave you with an empty womb…
A miscarriage leaves you with empty arms and empty dreams.
As soon as you get two lines on a pregnancy test, the dreams begin…
Dreams of the baby’s birth, first steps, first words, first day at Sunday School, graduation day, wedding day, your baby’s first baby… You can see it all, and you look so forward to being a part of the little one’s life.
When a pregnancy ends in miscarriage, the emptiness is all-consuming. All of the plans are gone…and you are left empty.
Though we are thankful for the time that we had…the days we were given to dream…
Our miscarriage left us with an unbearable emptiness.
