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!

Oh I am so so sorry. I stumbled upon your blog and just thought I would comment. It is so hard when you want something so bad and yet it doesn't seem to be happening around your time schedule. It took me almost a year (most definitely not as long as you) to get pregnant with my baby girl...and even during that time it felt like an eternity. But I have a sister in law, who wanted a baby and tried for 7 years and finally it happened. Just remember that there is always HOPE and God has a plan for us...every single one of us.

I hope and pray you have a wonderful holiday and I wish you simply the very best!


OH and I thought youd be interested in my "cashmere-soft" throw giveaway!!!

I'm so sorry to hear that. What a great outlook you have, but I know it is still so hard. Bless you,
