There's no perfect way to say it really, so here it goes:
Yesterday at my doctor's appointment we learned that our baby no longer had a heartbeat. The news is truly sad and disappointing for us, but we are grateful to have made it as far as we did on this journey. That alone is a sweet miracle.
We're using this time to practice our patience, flex our faith and count the many, many other sweet blessings that are ours. We have overcome hard things before and this is no different. Life as a whole really is so good. After a procedure tomorrow we'll regroup and, when the time is right, start this process again. Hopefully it won't be long before there's good news to be shared again.
