Tiny Treasures

This site has been created to give mothers who've lost babies in utero a place to catalogue their thoughts and emotions about the baby they loved but never got to hold.

Years ago, I had a friend call suddenly in the middle of the afternoon. I was napping with my young children at the time, and the voice on the other end of the line was so distorted with tears that I couldn't tell who it was. As my own mind came awake, I suddenly realized that this was my good friend, Debbie. She'd just been to the doctor and he'd told her that her baby was dead.

For Debbie...for each of you...may the God who cradles each hurting soul in his arms when they cry out to Him, cradle your heart as you reflect on the tiny treasure you loved and lost.
