Bravotv.com: What was your initial reaction when Quad reached out to you after your miscarriage?
Mariah Huq: It was just one of those things that made me say hmmmmmm....
Bravotv.com: Did you doubt Quad’s sincerity when she started to tear up at your house?
MH: Not sure about her sincerity; however, I am quite positive I did not see one tear. LOL.
Bravotv.com: How did it feel to finally receive an apology from Quad?
MH: Actually, my sense of peace came long before her apology. The day I apologized to her was the day I let go and let God.
Bravotv.com: After experiencing such a devastating loss, what words of wisdom or advice can you offer to mothers who might also be going through a miscarriage?
MH: Losing a child whether by a miscarriage, stillbirth, or the death of a living child is an overwhelming experience. Just remember you are not alone. One out of every three pregnancies experience miscarriage. In many cases, there is no explanation. That was the tough part for me. I just didn't understand why. Why did I have to experience such a devastating loss? Why did I even have to deal with so many health issues after the loss? Is there something I could have done to prevent this?
Every time I tried to find reasons, I found myself saying, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding." Yes, I know it's hard! You will have ups and downs. The pain never really subsides, you just have to remember everything happens for a reason. You will have your season, and you'll have a lifetime to enjoy everything that God has in store for you.
It's no easy feat, but with faith, family, and friends you can get through it. So many of you kept me and my family lifted in prayer, and I can't thank you enough! Thanks for the cards, flowers, fruit, food, phone calls and all the endless support. The #IncredibleHuQs will never forget all of your kind gestures.
