(Editor’s note: Following is the second installment of a four-part series on ways that the Catholic Church can minister to those who have suffered the loss of a child through miscarriage.)

God does not ask the impossible of us,” my husband comforted me while I was in the throes of the first trimester miscarriage of our fourth baby, Bernadette Marie. I was grief stricken, not only over the loss of our child but over my inability to save her remains for proper burial.

Within 24 hours of the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympics, my almost 4-year-old daughter asked me if she could take a gymnastics class. Then she wanted to begin swimming lessons (finally).
