It breaks our hearts that anyone would need this information, but we know that in reality, many parents are experiencing this pain every day and have many questions about what the Catholic Church teaches and what to do next. We hope we can help you find some answers. Below are links to some resources, both Catholic and secular, that may be of help to you as you seek or your loved one seeks healing. If you would like to talk with a parishioner who knows what you are going through, please contact Quincy Kawalski at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“You formed my inmost being;
you knit me in my mother’s womb.
I praise you, because I am wonderfully made;
wonderful are your works!
My very self you know.
My bones are not hidden from you.
When I was being made in secret,
fashioned in the depths of the earth,
Your eyes saw me unformed;
in your book all are written down;
my days were shaped, before one came to be.”
