  1. God bless you Kerri, thank you for sharing your post about your losses and baptism. Some people still feel that they must batize miscarried babies your posts truly helped add to the mission of Hannah's Tears as I linked it to the Facebook page. You have been a source of blessing as there are some souls that can not trust in the mercy of God.

    God bless you and yours,
    Therese Garcia

  2. I also go on pilgrimage to the Sorrowful Mother Shrine in Bellevue Ohio to honor my babies.

  3. Anne, that's such a great idea. I love the idea of a pilgrimage and the Sorrowful Mother is so appropriate. Thanks!
