Shattered

I should be writing my 16 week pregnancy update right now, but I am truly at a loss for the right words in this moment as my heart is overwhelmed. We learned this week that our precious gift - our unborn baby we love so much - has passed away just shy of 16 weeks gestation. We are all devastated, and there are many things about this that we just can't understand. 

However, we do know that we have a good, faithful Father who loves us the same as He did yesterday and as He will tomorrow. We know He will carry us as we attempt to navigate the waters of loss and grief. We know that without Him, this would be impossible. We praise Him as the giver of life and healing and peace.



Thank you for your prayers and respect at this time as we process, grieve, and attempt to put one foot in front of the other.

I am so sorry for your loss, and for the loss your children and husband are suffering. I hope you can take time to be kind to yourself, as I'm sure you're also dealing with mending tiny hearts all around you. Bless you, mama!

I followed your blog for years, recently I haven't had time to read blogs like I used to. This past week, I felt a tremendously strong spiritual burden to pray for you, not knowing why.

I am so terribly sorry for your loss. Your Heavenly Father loves you more than you could possibly comprehend. Praying for you in Virginia.
