If you've loved and lost a baby, there is a place.
In 2020 I discovered a special place in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It's called The National Memorial for the Unborn. Their website best describes the intent and purpose of these anointed grounds, which I visited in October. I was honored to travel to the memorial in person to install a permanent plaque for my lost baby boy. It was a day I will never forget. When we open our hearts to conversations about loss, it's surprising how many families have lost children to abortion, miscarriage, and stillbirth. I am grateful to the people who manage this memorial. May it continue to bless many in their healing journeys..
From their website: "The National Memorial for the Unborn is dedicated to healing generations of pain associated with the loss of aborted and miscarried children. No longer must these children remain nameless and forgotten, but are honored through the Memorial’s 'Wall of Names' and 'Remembrance Garden' allowing mothers, fathers and other family members to begin the healing process.The 50-foot granite 'Wall of Names' holds small brass plates with words of remembrance from individuals and families all over the country seeking post-abortion healing. Our Remembrance Garden is a peaceful sanctuary for mothers, fathers, and other family members to honor their miscarried child. Engraved brick pavers placed along the garden paths share their personal stories and provide encouragement to others seeking peace and solace there."
