What a week!
April 14, 2007

Hello!  I know it has almost been a month since I last blogged…I can’t believe Monday is a group night again!

I just wanted to let you know that we have had six new mom’s contact Tiny Purpose in the last 2 weeks, really.  Please be thinking of Holly, Kelly, Nicole, Gerri, Andrea and Amy.  I belive the first five of these women are planning on attending group on Monday, so you’ll be able to meet them and learn a little more about them and their precious babies then.  Amy is a family friend of mine who lives in Tennessee, so she is far from family and us!  As she attends her son’s funeral today, please be thinking of and praying for her and her husband…

Also, let me remind you that the Gathering to Remember is on Saturday, April 21st at the Christian Mission from 9am to 1pm.  We have a lot of wonderful things planned and I know the speakers will minister to your heart as they share their stories of infirtility and loss, as well as their journey through grief, and how they have had “beauty come from ashes”.  This year’s theme is “Expecting Joy” as we recognize that we have a lifeline to help get us through our grief.  Registration is required–call the Christian Mission at 517-263-7430.

Before I log off, I want to leave you with a thought for this weekend…Who walks beside you and gives you permission to be who you are and where you are in your grief journey?  If you are hiding your pain or hiding from people, then discover how God will meet you in your isolation.  If you are suffering and need to cry, then weep with all your heart.  If you feel like relating to others to help them through a similar journey, then connect.  And if you are seeking hope, help and healing to press on in your future, then start today. (adapted from Grieving the Child I Never Knew by Kathe Wunnenberg)

No matter where you are in your journey, we are here to help!  Don’t hesitate to email or call (see for contact info)…Tiny Purpose is here to support you however you need the most. 

I’m looking forward to Monday!  Love, thoughts and prayers, Alaina
