We received word yesterday that a dear friend from our online community and his wife lost their baby. She was about 18 weeks along in the pregnancy. The family must be absolutely devastated.
Our friend and his wife are very dear to many of us. They are two of the nicest, kindest people you’d ever want to know. And their 1 1/2 year old daughter is the apple of their eye, and much loved by many of us as well. And so, it breaks my heart that something so enormously unfair and painful can happen to such good people. This baby was much wanted, much hoped for, and already much loved. I cannot begin to imagine how they are feeling right now, the enormous loss, the hurt they are feeling, the grief for this baby that they tried so hard for and wanted so much. My heart is breaking for them.
Please, if you are so inclined, say an extra few prayers for Andy’s family this week. Send them as many positive thoughts as you can. They will need a lot of support, understanding and love at this terrible time, and while they grieve for their child.
