TRANSFORMING GRIEF TO INSPIRATION
By now, you’ve probably heard about NFL-star Marquise Goodwin and the heart-wrenching story behind the stillborn birth of the Goodwin baby. You’ve probably seen video of Marquise’s emotional breakdown during an NFL game held hours later:
I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family. 💙👣
Goodwin’s inspiring on-field performance led the 49ers to their first win of the season. His in-game heroics and emotional on-field display were followed by heartfelt and personal post-game comments that revealed the death of the Goodwin Baby. The story resonated with millions, sparking a viral outpouring of empathy and support.
Since Sunday, Morgan Goodwin-Snow has stepped onto the global stage, appearing on multiple daytime talk shows in order to confront societal stigmas associated with miscarriages — in doing so, proving herself a hero to the millions of families who’ve quietly attempted to deal with the pain and loss that surrounds a stillborn birth. Morgan, like Marquise, is also a world-class athlete and an inspirational leader in her own right.
