Module Seven: Joy Comes in the Mourning

Denial, anger, depression, acceptance – these are all stages in the grieving process. No two people grieve in the same way or in the same order. Just remember that the goal of mourning is not to “get over” it but to get through it – to do the work of grieving.

It’s a powerful step to name your aborted child(ren) and to grieve their loss and have an honoring service to remember their presence in your life. This step can lead to deeper healing and letting go of this pain by giving it over to God. This process is outlined in Isaiah 43:18-19 NIV – Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

The lessons in this module will provide more details about heaven and what your eventual meeting with your child could be like. God promised us in Psalms 126: 5-6 that – Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them.

Also outlined are potential future triggers of post-abortion pain and ways to tame them that will help you process future emotions relating to your lost child(ren).

Lesson One

Heaven’s Hope

Meeting your child in heaven can be a difficult thing to consider. God is the only judge in heaven. Everyone else enjoys a peaceful existence. Learning about Heaven can help you embrace that truth!

Lesson Two

Healing Abortion’s Bloodguilt

When we confess, many simply don’t realize that regardless of the sin, it isn’t in God’s character to hold our sins against us. Scripture verifies this truth that no matter what the sin, God can forgive!

Lesson Three

Naming Your Child

“It’s so much better to remember your child as people with a name rather than just the title of, ‘my aborted baby,'” my abortion recovery class leader announced as we passed the midpont of our time together.

Lesson Four

Your Child in Heaven

One of my biggest fears concerned my arrival in heaven. Would my baby hate me? I also wondered if I would even recognize my child. For a time I became worried about Jesse’s welfare –  who was caring for him?

Lesson Five

Our Life in Heaven

There are many Scriptures that outline what our life in Heaven will be like. Included in this lesson are just passages to bring truth and understanding about your future in God’s House.

Lesson Six

Honoring Their Lives

A funeral service for my aborted child seemed overwhelming and strange. I did not realize that God had prepared a moment of joy for me in that service.

Lesson Seven

Peace & Letting Go

One cannot “earn” God’s forgiveness. God does not desire sacrifice or gifts. He can use a broken spirit and contrite heart. In giving these to God, my sinner’s heart died and a new creature was born.

Lesson Eight

Your Life From Here

 Sometimes it’s not that hard to draw blood from an abortion wound, despite the fact it has been healed over for many years.

Lesson Nine

I Never Heard from

Her Again

Our “identity” as post-abortive women need never be revealed to the world and this choice should never define us as an individual or as a mother.
