Let's take a poll, shall we?
What is the number 1 thing you DO NOT say to a woman who has just had a miscarriage?
I'll give you a hint, K?
Try THIS one on for size, "Have you ever thought that maybe God's causing your miscarriages because he doesn't think you should have any more kids? Something to think on."
REALLY?!?! Is that REALLY something for me to think on?
How about instead, you think on THIS you heartless...person (Sorry. That's all I've got right now.)...who OBVIOUSLY is a MUCH better Christian than I could EVER think of being...YOU DON'T SAY THAT TO A WOMAN WHO HAS HAD A MISCARRIAGE!!!!!
Did I yell loud enough for you? Did you hear it? Did you get it? You're not doing me a Christian service in the name of God by telling me that God actually CAUSED me to get pregnant and then CAUSED me to lose my baby!
Is that something you'd say to a mom who lost her 1 year old to cancer? Or their 5 year old to a genetic disorder? Is that what you say to a mom who has lost her entire family in a car accident? That God didn't want her to have a family anymore so He took them away? Of COURSE NOT!
SO WHY ARE YOU SAYING IT TO ME!?!?!?
Are you KIDDING me?!?!?!
There. I feel better.
I know there are other readers who've had miscarriages or who know women who have. Any thoughts you'd like to give? I promise not to call anyone else heartless.
