Today is the fourth anniversary of our first child's due date. It's pretty much all I have of him. Had Peter survived the pregnancy he would be four years old today.
I wonder if he would look like me or Travis. I wonder if he would prefer chocolate or vanilla. I wonder what would make him laugh. I wish I could hear him say my name and I wish I could scoop him up in my arms.
Awhile ago someone anonymously mailed me an image of Christ holding a small child. I consider it my only picture of my son and I greatly appreciate the gift.
For Peter's sake I gather prayer intentions on the 15th of each month. The intentions can be related to infertility, the loss of a child, a failed adoption - anything that is related to the longing for a child.
As a way to honor the child I lost through miscarriage, Peter Mark, and to share your burden, please allow me to pray for you or your loved ones who are carrying the cross of infertility or loss of a child.
You may share your prayer request in the comment box or by emailing me at bonnie engstrom at gmail dot com.
Comments may be anonymous and please feel free to share as much or as little as you like.
It is an honor to pray for you! Thank you for the privilege!
