What We've Been Up To

Let's see... it's been a minute or so, hasn't it? :) Besides my two most recent posts about our miscarriage, I hadn't blogged since November 2013. Here's a few *minor* things that have happened since then :)

We announced we were expecting our 2nd child! Kate is 8 months old here.

We found out we were having a boy!!! This is us telling our family at Goodberry's.

Living with Loss

It's been a few months now since we lost our third baby and I shared about it publicly here. The response was seriously incredible. I could have never imagined the outpouring of love and support we received. It was truly amazing and really ministered to my soul. It was encouraging that people took the time to say something (when it can be really difficult to know what to say). It was encouraging to hear other people's stories of how they have experienced the loss of a baby through miscarriage or even a different type of grief. It has even been sobering and sweet to hear how God has used our story since then to friends who have recently lost babies. God is so good to bring beautiful things out of pain and heartache.

I wanted to talk a little about what it's been like in the months following "the worst days". It really helps me to process it all by typing it out and maybe God will use it to help someone else in their processing.
