Celebrating is hard

A reason to celebrate.. even though...  A few weeks back we got the wonderful news that I was expecting! We could not have been more happy!  It seemed an answer to many long years of prayer (4 to be exact).  I had my initial appointments and my due date was set for July 13th.  I was even reveling in the few days that I felt sick to my stomach!  Two days before Thanksgiving I began to miscarry, most likely culminating on Thanksgiving.  I was given the obvious news of the miscarriage the following Monday.

It seems to me that even those few weeks our baby was living within me are to be celebrated.  No, I don't know if it was a boy or girl, I don't know if its' heart had begun to beat, and I will never (this side of Heaven) know what caused the miscarriage.  What I do know is that Caleb has a brother or sister, and William and I have another son or daughter.  I look forward to the day that we can meet our second child in the Lord's presence.  Each and every life is precious, and I praise God for the few moments of this babies life.

All my love!
