Please join our brand new pregnancy loss community at Our Scarlett Stories. There you’ll find the most gracious and supportive community on the internet, a packed resource library, dozens of stories from other baby loss moms, book clubs, devotionals, downloads, Deep Dive grief support groups, and more.
Everyone grieves. But not everyone grieves with hope. Compassionate community makes all the difference.
At our core we’re about women supporting women. We aren’t experts. We aren’t know-it-alls. But we are gracious, kind, and supportive companions.
Our commitment is to gather a group of women willing to serve one another in and through our grief after pregnancy loss. “Stronger together” is more than a catch phrase; it’s a way of being in the world. Sisterhood gives us hope.
A note from your host, Adriel Booker:
When I experienced my first miscarriage I had never felt so isolated, confused, and angry. I had also never felt such sadness—deep, deep sorrow.
In the aftermath of my loss, I scoured the internet for stories and swallowed them like medication. I needed to read the experiences of others in order to know I wasn’t alone. Reading them made me feel validated in my own experiences. It didn’t take away my grief, but it affirmed the dignity of it.
Although there are a myriad of resources available to you here, at the heart of Our Scarlett Stories is the desire to create a spacious place to read and share stories. Stories—those of others as well as our own—help us heal if we’re willing to digest and absorb them and let them transform us.
Everyone grieves. But not everyone grieves with hope and hope makes all the difference.
It’s my conviction there are two essential components to grieving with hope: the presence and promise of Jesus and the compassionate support of a gracious community. It’s within this context you’ll experience your deepest healing. And it’s why we exist.
You are so welcome at Our Scarlett Stories with us.
Grace Like Scarlett: Grieving with Hope after Miscarriage and Loss
“Grief is wild like the sea, but it doesn’t need to destroy us. We can’t conquer it, but we can learn to navigate it. And we can find Jesus there, too.”
