Our little light went out

I had another ultrasound today. Our baby had not grown at all since last week and had no heartbeat. I did suspect that all was not well, so it didn't come as a shock, but how sad it is to see that little hope extinguished.

Goodbye, little one. I know you are safe and happy in the arms of God, but I am not going to get to hold you this side of heaven and my heart aches.

I am going to take a break from blogging until Advent, to give myself time to heal and to focus on the beautiful daughters God did allow me to meet. And how thankful I am for that.

Kathryn,

I am so sorry -- I had two miscarriages a few years ago and still feel sad ... I know God has a wonderful plan for all of us, but I so wish it included another baby for me and mine....

Know that you and all the family are in my thoughts and prayers this Advent and Christmas season!

Blessings and hugs, dear.

Oh Kathryn,
I am so sorry.

Is it definite? Is a week long enough to know for certain? I don't expect a reply.

Praying for you all, including the little one, just in case.
