 The Gospel Coalition blog recently ran a vulnerably written post where a father described what he and his wife experienced when they lost their child in the womb.

It’s something no one wants to think about, let alone live through. And often, those of us who surround a couple walking through this intense grief feel at a loss as to how to best respond and help.

That’s why I want to share with you John Patton’s post, “How to Mourn with the Parents of Stillborn and Miscarried Children.”  It not only explains the pain parents go through, it also provides six wise thoughts on how to help in this heartbreaking situation.

Click here to read this post at The Gospel Coalition, and to learn what how to best comfort couples walking through the death of their preborn child.
