Hundreds of children are dying of starvation and incurable diseases in many areas of the world on a daily basis. Could you, as a parent, imagine watching your child suffer and die like that? And then there is the children dying that have been neglected, abused, and unloved. Those children didn't just die peacefully, but in sorrow and agony, and unwanted. Or the children that are from good loving homes but have been kidnaped and killed or have gotten lost in the woods and died that way. How very hard that would be on the parents ( I can not even imagine the grief and pain from that ), and for the children in their last hours before death. And then there is children that is not dying, but living in horrible circumstances day in and day out, living with abuse and neglect, living with parents who are al addicted to drugs and alcohol.

Grieving with hope
I just added a new name to the blog. It will now be called Grieving With Hope and Mae's Mothering Journey. Sort of two blogs in one. I will continue with my regular blogging, and plus things on my heart and mind that pertain to our new journey we are on.
My hope and desire in this is to be an encouragement to others that are in a similar situation as us. This road is hard, and not at all what we would have wanted of course, but it is doable and bearable with God. And through it we can now relate to and support others that are going through this difficult journey.
All of the blog posts that pertain to our experience with our loss will be under the category Grieving With Hope. You are very welcome to share this blog with any one you know that may be encouraged by our story. I will be posting here when ever great things and thoughts are on my mind and often as time allows. ( I am a busy mom with 7 other blessings needing my time and attention. )
In Him, Mae
I am a wife to my wonderful husband, Paul, of over 22 years. Mommy to 9 blessings, ages 21 to 3 years. Our 2nd oldest son, at age 14, has gone on to be with the Lord on April 19th, 2017. I share about that new road we are on here on my blog.
My first 7 years of blogging.
Great inspirational reading!
