Riley Marie: 21 week loss
Every year around Riley’s birthday we share this video. After we lost Riley my husband, Josh Heffinger put this video together to help him grieve through that time.
It’s a video we treasure and means so much to have these memories. God blessed me with a husband that I could lean on during that time. Our marriage and our faith were put the test and the devil was very strong the days and months following. Our God is so much stronger than the devil and because of this our marriage became stronger and our faith even stronger.

Calebs Mom, Taleen Clifton shares the story: 38 week loss
When I was 28 weeks pregnant we found out our son had cleft lip, possible pallet and a two vessel cord . We got sent to a high risk OB three hours away from home. They did weekly ultrasounds on him due to his weight. All blood test came back negative when they checked for chromosomal problems. He started at 10th percentile and kept dropping. They were trying to keep him in as long as they could but once he hit 6th percentile they assumed it was safer to get him out...

On a Wednesday night, Marci complained of cramping and bleeding...We prepared emotionally for the surgery that Saturday and we said goodbye to our little baby. We were both very sad and shed many tears for our baby. While we really didn’t know the gender of our baby, we called her Dot...
November 22, 2012: Thanksgiving Day. It was the day after we came home from Cincinnati Children's Hospital after being there for 4 days. Seven fetal/pediatric specialists sat around a table with us and told us they couldn't save our precious baby boy. But God had a big plan for healing Trent. He was never in our home because he was made to live only in his eternal Home.
I miss him every single day, every one. I think about him throughout every day of my life, but he's heavy in my heart this time of year. His life brought so much joy and peace into our lives, and we will always be grateful for the way our family and friends cared for us as I carried him until his birthday on April 16, 2013. He was a miracle.
I re-watch this when I want to remember how I felt as I carried him through those unknown days. Those were the days I shared with him because we only had a short time with him here on Earth. God always gives you more than you alone can handle. He wants you to see your strength is not sufficient, but His is.
Here is a video I've shared before that tells Trent's life story and how God has been with our family each step of the way.

To an outsider, it appears that I have a perfect little family. While I do have a complete family, it was a journey of loss, anger and hopelessness, before I got my complete family. Here is my story....

"There is no greater agnoy than bearing an untold story inside you."
I recently read this quote and tears filled my eyes at the possibilities that families experience with pain in all situations. I've never thought of a story being untold, until I had one. My life has now become an open book, and for some reason my heart needs to let this story turn into one that is heard.
Miscarriages are never spoke of. It may be the pain that conversations bring up for the Moms and Dads that have experienced them, or the unknown of what could've become. Statistics show that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage. These numbers are devastating. They're not the fault of anyone but sadly, (as much as I've hated hearing the phrase,) "something that just happens." Which is where all of the hurt begins.
