A tragic loss.

I now know what it feels like.


I know what it feels like to get the best news of your life (I’m pregnant!).


I know what it feels like to go through a scare, but then be reassured when baby was 7 weeks old that everything was progressing normally. (Wow! Look at that strong heartbeat!).


I know what it feels like to tell close friends and family that we were expecting our first baby (we were on top of the world!).


I know what it feels like to start replacing fear with absolute joy over the miracle growing inside of me.


And sadly, I now know what it feels like to have all that excitement and expectation replaced with total devastation and loss when I was so close to entering the second trimester.


We have lost our little baby and we are completely heartbroken. I am living through a nightmare that just never seems to end.


And while I’m not ready to share the details (including the previously happy and now sad), I wanted you to know what we’re going through right now.


If you are the praying type, please keep us in your prayers. We need them more than ever.


Love,
Betty

I can't say I understand the joy and then sudden heartbreak but my heart breaks for you and Cowboy. I hope that your heart finds peace amidst this sorrow even if you may never have understanding of why.

I am so, so sorry Betty. I don't know what it feels like to go through that, but I can only imagine that you must be feeling so much hurt and loss. I'll definitely be keeping you two in my prayers.

Oh Betty, I am so sorry to hear about your loss! I'm lifting you and Cowboy up in prayer. I'm asking that God grant you understanding and peace in this horrible situation, and that His will be made clear. I ask that He brings you lots of comfort and encouragement, and at some point you can come to terms with this heartbreak. I can't imagine the pain you are in, but I pray you receive solace and know that for whatever reason this is all part of a bigger plan that you can't see right now. Hang in there love, cling tight to your man and know you'll get through it together.
