Our Stillborn Baby’s Greatest Gain

The next time you visit your stillborn, and you’re crying at the site of their grave,
Remember: your baby is more alive than ever; they have no crying, no tears, no pain.
He or she is now in perfect joy with all the saints, those whom Jesus came to save,
You must remember that the day of our greatest loss was our baby’s greatest gain.

Jesus has a special love for babies, and He knows each one by name,
Right now they are with Him in spirit, and one day with glorified bodies.
They can’t stop being near our Savior, for in heaven He is worth all the fame,
Our littles are well taken care of; no need to worry daddies and mommies.

So for those of you in Christ, you will one day join your baby at the throne,
And see for yourself the majesty, beauty, and wonder of His glorious Name.
At that moment all your heartache will be lifted, and you’ll finally be at home,
And you’ll realize that the day of your greatest loss was your baby’s greatest gain.

They are now with their Lord and Savior, far better than being here on earth,
God has many plans for them, and an infinite number of days to work with.
Our babies love to praise our God and King, for they have been doing so since birth,
You may or may not believe this, but I tell you the truth; heaven is no myth.

The joy of heaven is Jesus Christ; our babies know this and experience it every day,
They have just begun to enjoy His glory, and I hope one day you will do the same.
For when we finally see His face, shining like the sun with beams headed our way,
There will be no question, that the day of our greatest loss was our baby’s greatest gain!

  1. I mean it with my whole heart when I say this, that this is the most beautiful and helpful thing I’ve read since I lost my son. Enzo Charles was stillborn on 4/8/17 and all these truths you’ve mentioned are what keeps me going each day. The way you expressed these truths had my husband and I in tears. We even mentioned having this, or part of it, read at the burial in a few weeks (if that’s ok?). Thank you so much for using your talents to help us grieving mommies and daddies.

    • Wow! I am really humbled by your generous comments. Thank you so much for taking the time to tell me your story. I am so sorry for the loss of your son. And so recently too! I just said a prayer for you and your family. (-: And yes, you can absolutely read any part of this poem you want to at the burial. It would be an honor to me. I thank the Lord that this post was able to help you in any way. God bless you, Jessica.


  2. Hi Jamie,
    This is so beautiful and encouraging . It is so true. My husband and I have four preterm babies in Heaven along with our 11 year old daughter that gained her wings in the wee hours of 1/1/1997 from a seizure disorder. What keeps us going is knowing Cyndy and the other babies are with Jesus and we WILL see them again when we close our eyes here on earth and enter the presences of our Savior. God bless you and your family. May the Lord comfort you and hold you close to His heart.

    • Thank you for the sweet and thoughtful comments Anne! I can’t even imagine what you’ve been through with losing 5 children! I am so glad that you and your husband are finding strength and comfort in the only place that it can be found………..in Jesus Christ! I know one day you will have one amazing family reunion! May God bless you and yours as well. (-:
