Update on Sarah

First of all I want to thank each and every one of you who left comments and offered prayers for Sarah Kate and Bennie. It was so heartwarming to see the warmth and concern that exists here in this community. I can never ever tell you all how much it has meant to me. You guys are the greatest.

She had her blood work today and the hcg level was less than 2. So, of course we're resigned to the fact that there will be no baby this time. I remain convinced that they will eventually be successul and when that little miracle baby is finally in their (and mine!) arms God will get all the glory. And this Grandma will drive you all crazy with pictures galore!

Blessings to all of you....from the bottom of my heart.

Melissa, I was so heart broken to here the news. My gosh the ups and downs that must come from all of this (((HUGS))). I am surly praying for all of you. I pray that precious miracle baby comes when least expected-what joy that will bring!

We, my husband and I did not have to go through fertility, but it took quite a bit of time to conceive both our children. before them I had 3 miscarriages. The last one-the Drs. told us I would not be able to have children. We were devestated.
I was put on birth control and a month later I was pregnant with our son! Tell me that's not God Ü.

So my saying all this is to encourage and never give up. It will happen. I look forward to the day you post the exciting news of a grand baby Ü.

I'm so sorry.

My girlfriend has been going through something similar and it is heartwrenching to watch her disappointment and grief.

- I can't imagine when it's your own your child going though it.

I will continue to keep you all in my prayers!!!

It's so hard to wait when we want some so badly. My stepson and his wife got pregnant and wouldn't tell anyone except us and his mom & her parents. They went to the doctor and she had a miscarriage. Poor thing was so upset...cried at the school she teaches at and students that I know also were so worried about her. Still she refused to tell anybody. Pain is pain and talking about it helps so much! You keep talking about your pain. I am praying God blesses you with a beautiful grand baby very very soon! rose

I'm so sorry to hear that the news wasn't good. We'll all look forward to hearing the GOOD news when it comes!

I'm so sorry to read this Melissa, and I know the heart break that everyone us experiencing. It is a roller coaster ride on the tracks of emotion, and it never gets easier. I used to think that if I lost another baby, it wouldn't be so hard because I had already gone through it. But when the time came and it happened again, it was just as painful as the time before, maybe even more so because I started to feel like it had to be my fault in some way....even though I knew it wasn't. I will be praying for Sarah & Bennie, and ask God to protect their fragile spirits from crushing under the heavy weight of disappointment, and to mend their broken hearts with His amazing love. I hope tomorrow is a better day for all of you. Look forward....

Pooh Hugs,

Oh sooo sorry!!! I understand, had a few miscarriages myself. Got two healthy kids though. There comes a time when you just have to "let go and let God". Maybe God's plan for these two is to provide them a child through a different path. Will keep Sarah in my prayers. De ;)

Sherry said...

I continue to keep them in my prayers on the smoke. I know it's not an easy thing to find acceptance for. In time I hope they are able to have their miracle child. (Hugs)Indigo

Debbie said...

Hi Melissa, I was thinking of you and your family and thought I'd stop by to give you some hugs. You are all in my prayers, I wish I were able to do more.

Sue said...

I finally found your blog! This has been crazy trying to locate the ones I used to follow and then getting you my link! Ah well, I found it and that's what matters. If you follow this one it will lead you to my new one (successfully I hope). Sorry to hear of your troubles, and I hope things work out for the best for all of you. I can empathize with what you're going through. I'll keep you in my prayers. It's hard to remember that these kind of things are never in our hands. God decides what will be, and you'll be blessed one day. Have faith in that, even though it's hard.
