Father Sings a Loving Tribute to Babies Lost to Miscarriage

Grab the tissues before clicking “play.”

Denalee Chapman February 10, 2016

Musician Craig Aven recently completed his original composition, Perfect Way To Start, which he began when his wife miscarried for the first time nearly a year ago.

“Usually lullabies don’t make mommies and daddies cry,” sings Craig. They’ve lost two children to miscarriage, and the tender feelings of hopeful parents are shared beautifully by Craig. He sings of his knowledge that “heaven’s the perfect way to start,” even while parents are feeling the ache in their hearts.

Craig shares not only the heartache he and his wife feel, but also the peace they have as they reach out in faith through hardship. More of Craig’s music may be heard on his website.
