Thank you

We have received so many messages, emails, and phone calls from friends and family checking in on us. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "you just let me know, and I'll come stay with you," or "call me if you want to talk, I'm here." It is deeply touching, we are so sincerely grateful.


This morning was especially tough for Mike and I. We went in to have an ultrasound done to make sure everything has passed, and to see how my body is recovering. However, this morning was our original apt. for my 1st ultrasound. We were anticipating this date on the calendar as such a happy and special day. Instead we were watching blank images on the screen.


Miscarriages are SO freaking hard to go through. I've been amazed at all the ladies that I've talked to this week that have shared their stories with me. Most of them still tear up talking about them; time heals, but the emotions of it all are still so raw. Forever in our hearts instead of our arms. What an amazing reunion that will be, when we get to finally hold our babies.


One particular lady I've met this week along the way (it is SO obvious how God has planted these women in my life) told me a wonderful thing. She said that her grandmother had 16 children...and 3 miscarriages. Her grandmother always looked at her miscarriages as blessings; it was God's way of blessing you with healthy children. It was a neat perspective for me to see for the first time.


More than anything, I'm so thankful for Mike, and the solid foundation we have. I told him last night, of all the things I've stressed and worried and cried over this week, "WE" haven't been one of them. We're always right there by each other's side supporting one another. Sharing shoulders to lean on...or cry on. It's humbling to watch him ignore his own pain b/c he's so focused on making sure I'm alright.

Then there's our Natalie, the best therapy there is.
