“Glory Babies allows you to grieve, celebrate a pregnancy, most importantly remember your loss! Thank-you for remembering our precious children. He heals the brokenhearted, Great is our Lord and abundant in strength, His understanding is infinite.” -Kelly Cross Moore

“I was so blessed that your organization is reaching out to those dealing with infertility. I must say that other than my mother’s death, infertility has been the biggest grief of my life. My husband and I got to the point where we went to a fertility specialist in Dallas and I KNEW God was telling me to let it go and let His will be done. Nothing had been so hard in my entire life and I have never cried so much over anything. But, I finally resolved that if God intended for me to be childless, I wanted His will anyway. I gave it up. One month later I was pregnant. I can truly say that I have not taken my son for granted a single day since I knew I was pregnant because ‘for this child I prayed.’ I knew how precious and fragile life was. Then the second wave of grief came when EVERYONE assured me that now that I had had one, I was ‘fixed.’ Having more children would be a snap. Well, time proved that that was not the case. Again, the Lord told me to give it to Him. It was easier for me to give it to Him the second time, but the result has been harder for me to accept. 12 years later my son is still an only child, but God made that one PERFECT! I couldn’t have dreamed up a more wonderful, Christian young man. Still, most people don’t understand the pain because they say, ‘At least you have one.’ That’s very true and I’m VERY thankful because I realize many couples are never able to conceive. But, God has taught me many things through this. So, I just want to say thank you for acknowledging that infertility brings its own unique form of grief.” -Deann Lee

“Glory Babies helped me realize that my babies are to be celebrated and there lives are important and that God had a better plan for them and that by giving my babies names, I was finally able to feel a sense of security that it’s ok to validate there lives and acknowledge there place in our family.” -Jenny Smith

“What does Glory Babies mean to me? I do not know if you can put it into words. Do you have any idea how much hate one can build up in sixteen years? Do you know how black ones heart can become? Do you know how far apart a couple can become? I shut out someone that I love more than life itself. I ignored what should have been the most important part of my life. We had two beautiful boys later but I missed a bunch of stuff in their life because my priorities were so messed up. After sixteen long years, I was able to finally talk about Zack. I realized that night what I had done to my family and was none to proud of it.” -Craig Davis

“In December of 2003, Heather and I lost precious Isabella Danielle Hulsey. Through the ministry of Glory Babies we learned how God uses grief as a building block for joy. We are sincerely grateful for the people and hearts of Glory Babies. Our prayer is for the continued growth of this effective, real world ministry that truly touches people where they are.” -William (Bo) Hulsey

“Before the first meeting with the other original core members of Glory Babies, I was so afraid that everyone would forget about my precious babies except for my husband and myself. Unfortunately, that is what happens too many times and I felt that it was important that they be remembered and cherished by all. Glory Babies has really given my babies’ lives a purpose. I know that it is because of my involvement with Glory Babies, that I am able to say with conviction, ‘OK God, I am not happy that my children live in Heaven with you instead of here on earth with me, but I can understand that there is a purpose to my pain and that purpose is to be able to minister to other couples who are experiencing some of the same things.’ I feel that God has truly blessed me with the friendships that have formed during the last 4 ½ years and that the bonds of grief will keep us bound together for many years to come.” -Jodi Weaver

“After losing our second son at 35 weeks, my husband and I looked at each other every day and said we weren’t going to let this come between us. However, after 5 months of grieving we looked across the table at each other and believed we had nothing left in common. Our marriage was in serious trouble. Glory Babies became an incredible outlet for me. It freed my husband from being my sole grief partner. I found the support of others and especially God. We are now 6 years down the road and our marriage is stronger than ever.” -Jennifer Carson

“After losing my Christopher at 35 weeks, I thought I would be able to handle my grief by myself. How wrong I was. Through the excruciatingly painful and tearful first meeting, to the first birthday party for our child, to my last meeting after finding out about our subsequent pregnancy, I could not have survived without the support of the Glory Babies group.” -Christy Evans

“After two miscarriages, I was angry and wondered why God allowed this to happen to me. Glory Babies helped me to realize that what I was feeling was normal and also that God has a perfect plan for my husband and I.” -Crystal Rogers
