I carried you your whole life.

I started miscarrying. I'm not pregnant anymore. I was so excited. And, now it's over. There's so many lovely sweet kind people around me that I've been doing just fine. It's still a loss. And, I'm sad.
I would have been due in February. It could have been a boy or a girl. 

It's not a viable pregnancy anymore, and it's over. But, I'm changed after this. I'm sorry for the loss any woman has had. It's hard. It's sad. I'm working through it myself. 

Ultimately, I know God protects all- the born and unborn. We are safe and well. 

This is why I haven't written lately. I wanted to write about this. It's hard, though. People either talk about it or they don't. I have to. It's part of our life. We were sad-- and we were able to talk about it. 

I'm doing okay, though. Thanks for reading. More on adventure side tomorrow- We're in Minnesota now.

Britain,

I'm so sorry you had to experience the loss of your precious child. We experienced the same loss last summer. It's a heartbreaking experience. It can be hard to talk about. Some people are understanding while others down play the loss. I will be praying for you and your family. I knew God had a plan for that precious boy or girl we would have had this past March. We are now expecting another little girl any time now.

Britain I am so so so sorry and so sad. I don't know if you know but I've had one too. And unless you've been in the boat you can't possibly understand the emptiness. So I'm sad with you. It makes the pit of my chest ache that you're going through this. Always remember that God promises to be close to the brokenhearted and that He's right there with y'all. He will turn your mourning into dancing in due time. I love you and am only a phone call away!
