Last week, I read my copy of the Inspire (the alumni magazine for Cedarville College). I know that Cedarville likes to call itself Cedarville University these days, but to me it will always be Cedarville College.
One item that stood out to me was an article about Peace Bears. It is a sad but worthwhile story about an organization that gives teddy bears in memory of stillborn children. That way the parents have a memento and an outlet for their grief. And, as the website says, it allows them to take something home rather than leave with empty arms.
I think the reason I noticed the article was because of the photographer we had take our family picture last summer. She was involved in Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, an organization that provides infant bereavement photography. It was one of those things that I had never even considered before – what to do when your child dies.
“and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
– Revelation 21:4
