Everyone who enters the covenant of marriage hopes for every happiness that life has to offer.
God created the world to reflect His Goodness and Love. Unfortunately, the world became an imperfect place because of The Fall. After The Fall, death entered the world.
Part of the covenant of marriage includes being open to the transmission of life through the conjugal act of marriage.
Sometimes in our openness to having children life appears to deal us a cruel blow.
Unfortunately, babies die in the womb and outside of the womb through ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth and infant death.
Many bereaved parents are angry and
disappointed with God after the death of their baby or babies.
