This post was supposed to be beautiful and exciting news. Abe and I were going to announce that we were adding to our family and were expecting a baby in March of 2010. Today, however, we found out that our sweet little baby had no heartbeat. I know miscarriage is very common and I grieve that so many women have to experience it. It doesn't change how much it hurts. God is still good... in everything... all the time...

So, this song Glory Baby by Watermark pretty much sums it up:

Glory baby you slipped away as fast as we could say baby…baby..
You were growing, what happened dear?
You disappeared on us baby…baby..
Heaven will hold you before we do
Heaven will keep you safe until we’re home with you…
Until we’re home with you…

Miss you everyday
Miss you in every way
But we know there’s a
day when we will hold you
We will hold you
You’ll kiss our tears away
When we’re home to stay
Can’t wait for the day when we will see you
We will see you
But baby let sweet Jesus hold you
‘till mom and dad can hold you…
You’ll just have heaven before we do
You’ll just have heaven before we do

Sweet little babies, it’s hard to
understand it ‘cause we’re hurting
We are hurting
But there is healing
And we know we’re stronger people through the growing
And in knowing-
That all things work together for our good
And God works His purposes just like He said He would…
Just like He said He would…

I can’t imagine heaven’s lullabies
and what they must sound like
But I will rest in knowing, heaven is your home
And it’s all you’ll ever know…all you’ll ever know…

Thank you for your prayers as we walk through this valley. Don't worry, we'll make it through.

Sarah and Abe

  1. Oh Sarah, I'm so sorry! A loss is a loss, whether you're 8 weeks or 8 months or 8 years into your child's life. Several people shared the Glory Baby song with me after we lost Ty and it makes me cry everytime I hear it. You're right, God is still good, but it's hard to understand why he allows us to suffer so much and in so many ways. I'll be praying for you, Abe and that God blesses you again soon! Take care, hun!
