From the very bottom of our hearts…
The last week has flipped our lives upside down, but through this unexplainable rough patch Scott and I have felt so much love.
We cannot thank each and every one of you who has reached out with a comment, message, phone call, text, email, and lifted us up in prayer and comfort enough. We are completely overwhelmed.
I probably won’t be going back to respond to every single comment here, but please know that all of them have been read and that they have provided a sense of peace knowing that we are not alone. We are very blessed to have a strong support system, near and far.
Thank you to those who have shared their own stories and words of advice. While we have been through a lot of storms in our marriage, this has been the hardest one. Even so, we know that it is a part of God’s perfect plan for us (and the baby), and our faith has remained strong in knowing that better things are to come that we can’t even understand yet.
It might take some time, but eventually, we will see the purpose of this along with other unexpected trials that have come up this week.
I’m going to take the next few days away from the blog to focus on healing and getting back to a normal work schedule. Please know that I care for each and every one of you who clicks over to read here. You really mean so much to me. And us. <3
So much love… xo

I’m glad you’re taking the time you need right now. It’s so important to try to be present in the moment even though I’m sure the last thing you want to do is go through those feelings. Lots of love to you two and I’m looking forward to your return 🙂

Sending your family love and prayers <3. I'm glad you are taking all the time that you need and I will certainly be here when you get back.
My Prayers are with you and your family. I had an early loss in August and am now 20 weeks with a healthy little boy. Stay strong, it is so hard but you will get through this <3

Ah I’m so sorry! I just read the last post. I remember in the early days of pregnancy (and even in the later days), if something felt wrong it was just a terrifying feeling. It took awhile for the idea of actually having a baby to grow on me, but moments where something felt off scared me to death and made me realize every time how terrifying it would be if something happened to our baby. I cannot even begin to imagine the loss that you feel, especially knowing how badly you and Scott had been wanting to have a baby and how long you had been trying. I hope you never have to experience this again and go on to have happy, successful pregnancies, although I’m sure Baby #1 will always be loved and missed. And always remember that there was nothing you could have done to change the outcome (which I only say because I hear so many moms have so much guilt when we tell them in the hospital that they may be miscarrying- not because you implied that in any way). I hope you and Scott find some peace with the loss of your first child and that it continues to help you grow as a couple.

I’ve been thinking and praying for you ever since I read your very sad news Heather. Even though you are already a mother, I am anticipating the day I open your blog and see you holding a sweet baby in your arms. And I KNOW that day will come. So many hugs.
