View Full Version : Grieving the dead of my first son

Julius' Mom

Two weeks ago I gave birth to our first son - precious, beautiful Julius Felix. He lived for two hours and then went back to heaven. Now my husband and I are so numb, so in pain, so angry - yet so thankful that we got to hold our son, cuddle with him and see him. I was only in week 28, we had never ever expected premature labour...
Is there anyone out there that has been through sth. like that?

Shalom in Yeshua Julius' mom, My heart goes out to you and your husband for the pain I know I felt when I lost my little boy aged 11 weeks. He too was premature but only by 4 weeks. He then developed complications which eventually led to his passing.

We are taught that there is a special place in Sheol especially for children. They are tended by angels and saints and when we to 'go home' they are first to come to greet us.

It is important that you and your husband understand the pain each of you are going through. Many people will feel for you both, but they won't know what to say, so they will find it easier to avoid you. It's was very sad when I saw neighbours crossing the road to avoid that contact. So make allowances for each other, and most importantly talk to each other.

I have already prayed for you both, and I am here for you.
May God bless you
