Prayer Request

Some of you knew that my sister and Kurt found out they were expecting a little one this December. They told me on Eater Sunday with a special egg stuffed with aunt and uncle gear. Lee and I were so excited to hear their news. We took them to Lee's clinic and got an ultrasound pic. Jen was only 6 weeks, so there wasn't much to see, but we got one nonetheless. Last week Jennifer began having some spotting and cramping and finally went to the ER Sunday night. There they did a sonogram where they could see the baby but could not find a heartbeat. We are all just heartbroken. To make matters worse, it seems like everyone around Jennifer (lots of friends and co workers) is having a baby right now or just getting pregnant. Its been really hard for me to accept. I just don't get it. Why? Why? Why? Its just not fair. Not only does she lose a baby, but babies are thrown in her face all the time. Jen is has a really good attitude about it. She is grieving, don't get me wrong, but she is working through it with a positive attitude. I know that she and Kurt are going to be amazing parents some day. And I try to remind myself that God is in control, but sometimes its just not that easy. So anyway, if you could please keep my sister and her husband in your prayers, I know they will appreciate it.

I look forward to the day I can announce Jen's pregnancy on my blog AND the arrival of my first neice or nephew. :)

Oh, Laura, I have tears in my eyes. I'm so sorry to hear this news. I'll be praying for them and for a healthy pregnancy the next time around.
