A New Life…A New Journey

Last week we were so excited to start brainstorming ways our boys could share the exciting news about our new “addition”.

We went to our 9 week ultrasound two weeks ago, and everything was great. We had a strong 170bpm heart beat and we were expecting baby #3 the first of September!

Suddenly that exciting news changed our lives in a way we hadn’t expected. We found out, just 5 days after our great ultrasound, that our baby’s heart was no longer beating. Those words still sting as I hear them in my head. “We can’t find a heart beat.”

This perfect little nugget placed in my womb, was there for a different purpose. A purpose God is in control of. A purpose that was for His glory. A purpose we struggled to see through the haze of grief.

The perfect plan we had for our family. The dreams and prayers we already had for this new child, we would never see fulfilled. And then God showed us His plan…His perfect plan. A plan of patience. A plan of trust. A plan of love and mercy.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning, great is Thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23.

Thank you to all our friends and family who have prayed and supported us through this. The outpouring of God’s love from His people has blown us away.
