The rainbow is a symbol of HOPE! The Chews Life crew is praying in a special way this month for all who have suffered the loss of a child, and we are offering the of a new collection to honor both the babies we hope to meet in heaven, as well as those ones that came after a loss, bringing new hope and beauty into our lives—the Rainbow Collection.
October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss awareness month. For many women whose children died before they truly had a chance to live, this is a heartbreak that we will carry with us all of our own lives. We are blessed to have the saints, our friends in heaven, to show us the way to heroically pick up this cross. St. Zélie Martin, the mother of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, lost several babies to miscarriage and illness, but in spite of the pain and sorrow she faced, she reminds us that the greatest tragedy is losing heaven. The children she had to say goodbye to on this earth were not lost forever, but are now interceding for her in God’s presence. May we have the hope and trust that St. Zélie Martin displayed when she wrote, “We shall find our little ones again up above.”
