A Modern Day Fairy Tale: Lullabies in Heaven

Lullabies in Heaven

It amazes me how quickly you can fall in love. With the first hint that you may have a baby on the way, to the positive pregnancy test...it's an immediate love. At least, it is for me. So, you can only imagine that it is with the deepest sadness that I have to write this post. Unfortunately, on Saturday night, less than a week after sharing our joyous news with friends and family, we lost our sweet baby.

For those who have ever felt this pain, from the bottom of my heart, I'm sorry. For those that haven't, I truly hope you never will. Unfortunately, miscarriages- especially this early in pregnancy- are all too common. (My doctors said some women never even realize they were pregnant and had one in the first place!) Having that knowledge still does nothing for the pain it causes though. I know that as the days go by, the pain will become less and I know that eventually, God will bless us with another child. And yes, I even know that this baby is now in the hands of God. But right now, it still hurts.

I am not ready to talk about it much more than this, but I do greatly appreciate any prayers you can send our family during this time. Our family has survived a lot, and we'll survive this too...one day at a time.

  3. So sad to hear this! You and your family are in my prayers!

    I just saw your announcement on your FB page and wrote a comment (which I deleted), then came over to explore your blog and saw this!

    I'm truly sorry!

    God has a plan and a purpose for every life, no matter how brief that life may be.

    Blessings!

  4. I've been praying for and thinking about you. As mothers, when we see that positive test, we immediately envision the entire life of our child. Unlike other losses, we mourn the future not the past. I know God has wrapped His loving arms around you and given you strength to get through this... and He will continue to do so. Hugs!
