Update

Thank you for all prayers and condolences. We decided to name our son Dominic, which means "belongs to God." Two miscarriages in 5 months has taken a lot out on me physically and emotionally, and my husband is still pretty shaken up as well, so we've decided that although we both want more children, we're going to wait 6 months to a year before trying again. I'm still waiting to hear back from pathology, I hope they'll be able to give me some answers.

Katie,
That's a great name. Again, I'm so sorry. I think of you often. I hope the pathology report is as comforting as possible.

Dominic, pray for us.

Fr. Longnecker has a post about having Mass said for the dead. I must say it did bring me greater peace having Mass said for the children I lost, espically having the Mass said in their names.

Thanks for the link Anne Marie! We did have Mass said for the baby we lost in May (Maria Gerard) and will again for Dominic at our home parish. I think it's a wonderful way to honor our babies.
