Our Angel

Last night, at about 1am, our sweet little baby went to be with Jesus.

I had some light blood show up at 7pm with cramping, and we went to the ER to get an ultrasound. In the 7 hour wait, I miscarried our precious little one. I saw it... Yes, there had been just one. An ultrasound confirmed no fetal pole, no yolk sac. My blood HCG beta was already down to 42.

Jonathan and I are very sad and mourning our precious child in heaven, who only had a little over 4 weeks on earth in my womb. We don't doubt God, but this hurts all the more for what it took to get here. Pray for us.

Oh Denise, I am so sorry.

"At this, Job got up and tore his robe and shaved his head. Then he fell to the ground in worship and said:
"Naked I came from my mother's womb,
and naked I will depart.
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away;
may the name of the LORD be praised.""

I grieve and rejoice with you, Denise.

Denise- Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for you. Please know we will be praying for you, as we have been. I pray that the Lord would bring the sweet comfort that only HE can bring. You & Jonathan are Heroes in the faith to many, and your response to this heartbreak is affecting the many who watch you. Thank you for your amazing example.
