Wow.

I was catching up on my blogs this morning & one of the blogs I follow, she was pregnant with twin baby girls.

Last week, she went into pre-term labor & doctors could not stop it. She delivered the babies at 20 weeks & they essentially died in their parents' arms.

I cannot imagine the heartbreak & pain they must be going through. Please keep them in your thoughts & prayers.

It really puts my life in perspective. It's really not as bad as I may think sometimes.

  1. Oh my...*crushed* Thats so sad. There are definately a lot of horrible and tradgic stories out there. My ex and his girlfriend were pregnant about a year ago, she made it to 7 months and had the baby boy early, but his brain wasnt fully developed and therefore they werent able to save him. It makes you think, even when you reach the point where they say your in the "safe zone" anything can happen. My brother and sister in law announced their big news on Thanksgiving (after trying with no success for over 6 years) she miscarried and I think I took it harder than they did because I couldnt imagine losing our baby Kylie...we are fortunate women to have healthy pregnancies and beautiful babies...not a day goes by that I make sure I dont take what I have for granted.

  4. We lost our baby boy last May when I went into labor at 19 weeks and 2 days. I know the pain that they are feeling right now is unimaginable and I will definitely keep them in my thoughts and prayers. I hope they are able to eventually reach a peace with their loss. I know the thing that helped my husband and I the most was to lean on each other. We became even closer and our marriage is even stronger, and we already had an awesome relationship. I hope too, that they don't blame themselves or feel anger. It is a long healing process, but I am thankful everyday for the brief time we had with our son and that we were able to hold him and kiss his perfect little face. I feel so much for her and her husband and it makes me cry just thinking of her. Those early days are the hardest, but her little angels are always with her, and looking down on her right now.
