Mrs. Larimore has endured the loss of several miscarriages and has been able to use her pain to help women and couples who have also lost their babies.
Russ and June Gordon founded "A Quiet Refuge" ministry out of the pain and loss they suffered through three miscarriages. Their website is BabiesNotForgotten.com. Together, the Gordons created a high quality, illustrated 24-page photo-journal album entitled, Forever in Our Hearts. The album gives couples permission to grieve the loss of a child whose life was so brief. Russ and June believe that all children, even those unborn, are incredibly special to God, and that we should value them just as He does. The Gordons live in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which is also home to their ministry.
