GRRRRRRRRRRAHHHHHHHHHHH! Those quotes and scripture citings get me all angry all over again. First time I ever doubted anything I'd leared as a good little dub growing up was when the elders told me that my two miscarried babies didn't have a chance.
I just remember blanking out mentally and crossing a line I could never go back over as the one elder blathered on about Job saying it would have been better for him to have died as "a hidden miscarriage" and the other one looked like he wanted to hit him with his Bible because here I was, totally devestated and this is how they come to 'comfort' me? by saying first of all "well, you know your baby has no future in God's eyes.'
thanks a fricking lot. I almost committed suicide over that. I will never forget the way that felt.
((((((hugs)))))) to all the other moms who have lost babies and been treated so 'tenderly' by the WTS 'loving' shepherds.
I don't know where my babies are or what future they have. But they were real and I loved them and I deserved a hell of a lot better than the WTS could offer me in my grief. We all did.
