I certainly don’t expect that if you do an event like this, you’ll do everything just the same way we did. However, there’s not point in reinventing the wheel. So here are all the pieces to this event. Again, I didn’t come up with our carry out this event. My wife dreamed up this event while pregnant several weeks back. Right after losing the baby, she gathered together with three other women at our church and the four of them put all of this together. They were willing to share, so I present to you all of their creativity and hard work.

Thank you so much for sharing this idea and resources. We have been praying about and looking for something like this.
I just wanted to point out one of the specific resources our church offers that we put on our resource list. We offer a Bible study annually for women who are suffering from post-abortion syndrome. The curriculum is Forgiven and Set Free: A Post-Abortion Bible Study for Women.
I’ve read that there is a study just for men too. (Men who’ve encouraged or pushed a partner to have an abortion can suffer from the guilt of that choice too.)
In the U.S. today, 1 in 3 women will have an abortion by the time they are 45. I personally have talked to many women who carry the pain of that choice in their past, and in some cases the guilt and shame have paralyzed them from moving forward with Christ. I’ve also talked to several women who’ve gone through this study and have seen it change their lives.
I love the fact that in today’s world, there are so many great resources for the church to really help hurting parents.
I remembered this post today and wanted to add this resource to it.
Its from a pastor here in Sydney who went through a miscarriage.

Wonderful post! This is so helpful to those couples who unfortunately lost their baby. Mainstay Ministries This can somehow ease the pain and made realized that the baby was not born for them but the other way around it was born to heaven. Thanks for sharing.
I really love this post. I think this is so helpful to those people who unluckily lost their baby. Mainstay Ministries This kind of post can somehow ease the pain. Thanks for sharing.
Can I just say how incredible it is that out of the pain you and your wife have borne, such a beautiful ministry has come to be birthed? My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn your loss. May you be blessed in your sorrow, even as you are blessing so many others in theirs.
