A very sincere thank you


Words are failing me right now. I really just wanted to take the opportunity to say Thank You so much for the loving response that I received from my post yesterday. Thank you for your support and encouragement. Thank you for your kind words and your hugs. A million times thank you!

When I sat down to write yesterday's post I wasn't sure what I wanted to share. I knew that my husband and I have been through something extraordinary. I don't mean that word only in a positive context. While positive things have come from what we have experienced, losing a  baby is something that no one should ever have to go through. I really have felt a pressing on my heart to share our experience. To share how it has shaped us as a couple, as a family, as individuals and as followers of Christ. If hearing about our experiences is something that you would like me to write more about, please let me know either via the comments, on Facebook or on Twitter. While sharing is extremely cathartic, it is also hard emotionally too. I do plan on writing more about our babies, but if people want to hear more then I will put in a more concerted effort to do them sooner rather than later.

Yesterday I also felt very uncertain about my post. I wasn't sure how it would be received and I was afraid to put it out there and have a negative experience. Crazy to think that, I know! But my Mom gave me tremendous encouragement to put it out there. To share what we had been through. When I lost my first and subsequent babies I felt so very alone. None of my friends had experienced this and I just felt like I was floundering. Thank God for having such a supportive husband and family! I had found a wonderful Molar Pregnancy support group online that they were lifesavers. I wish that I had known about blogging at the time, about the tremendous support that was out there. I am so very grateful to have found all of you now.

Please know what an encouragement you have been to me, how healing this has been. I pray that you all know that I am here for you the same as you have been here for me. Please please please let me know if there is any way that I can be of encouragement to you. This crazy ride called life has it's ups and downs for sure, I would be so very honored to ride along side all of you and help out where ever I can.


  1. I think it so wonderful of you to look to serve others in encouraging them. But whether your readers want to hear it or not, this is your blog. So, I say that if you feel you want to share - then go right on ahead.

  2. I too think it's been just so healing to blog about it!
