an update

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.

I am so very sorry ... I wish I were closer to give you a hug and tell you in person how much I love you. Sometimes I wish we could see the big picture to understand why we have to go through some of the heartaches that we do.
You are in our prayers.

Much Love,
Tam

So sorry for you! It sounds like you've worked hard to get pregnant. You are so positive. I've had a late-ish miscarriage, and I know its hard. I'm so sorry, but you have the right attitude for sure. In the Lord's hands and His timing, right?
