My Miracle

  1. Sarah Stout says:

    Hugs to you, Aubrey! I went through a miscarriage before I had my son and had a “vanishing twin” with my current pregnancy. Miscarriage is ROUGH no matter the circumstances. Praying for you and so glad you have felt your miracle! Mine came 4 weeks into my first miscarriage (yes, my miscarriage lasted forever… my numbers kept going up for weeks while bleeding before they went down). I had just witnessed the birth of my nephew and was overjoyed for my sister but heartbroken for what I was going through. My husband and I were in Utah visiting and went to the Salt Lake temple for the first time. In the Celestial Room, we both had the same impression that what we were going through was NOT just for us to learn, but so that we could help to strengthen and bless others who would go through miscarriage. I held on to that. A few months later, I posted about the experience on my blog and a friend from high school I didn’t even know read my blog read that post MONTHS later when she was miscarrying. She reached out to me to thank me for sharing my experience and what I had written because it buoyed her up and helped her to feel like she wasn’t alone. You never know what sharing your story and experiences (AND FAITH!) can do to help others grow through similar experiences. Thank you for your words and your strength!

      thanks sweet girl. Sorry that I don’t have many words in response, but I read everything you said and it rings so true and close to my heart. Thank you for sharing your experience. <3

  2. Aubrey, those pictures are beautiful, and thank you so much for sharing your story. I’m so sorry you have to go through this, but your positive outlook and eternal perspective are sure to touch others going through the same thing. I haven’t personally experienced a miscarriage, but I have so many close friends who have, and awareness of how often it happens needs to spread. You aren’t alone, because there are so many others and because of our loving Savior. Thanks again for sharing 🙂

    I just came across your blog by happenstance and you have me in tears. My heart breaks for your family in this time. I feel such a kindred connection in reading this and how you’re dealing with it – seeing silver linings and miracles in even horrible times. I’m so much the same way – thank you for continuing to add beauty and joy to this world that can often times seem dark.

    So, so sorry for your loss! Thank you for sharing because I know you have helped someone through their miscarriage by doing so! You have a beautiful family!!!

  5. It breaks my heart that you’ve had to go through this, but I love your testimony of miracles! I had a miscarriage last July, and it was devastating, but I know I’ll see that sweet baby again some day. Miscarriages are tough, and I hope you are doing well with everything. I know we are brand new mom friends, but if you want anyone to hang out with, I will come over!!! 🙂

      Thanks so much for your sweet comment Lauren! I’m so glad I met you! We definitely need to get together again. I’m so sorry you went through this same thing last July. You are having your rainbow baby so soon! I can’t imagine that there will be anything sweeter. So excited for you!<3

    Aubrey, I just watched your scope about this. Big hugs!!!! I’m so sorry that you had to go through all this, but I love that you are so positive after it all. I went through a miscarriage I year and a half ago and had to have a D&C with mine too. It’s such a hard thing, and you’re right – no one talks about it. It’s so much more common than I ever realized before I had mine. Thank you for sharing, it’s so important for people to know that they aren’t alone! Much love to you and your beautiful family, and prayers for your current pregnancy.
