From Kristjana’s Husband

March 8th, 2007

Hello Everyone:

I am so saddened to write this update.    I had to bring Kristjana to the ER early this evening.   We lost the baby.  

I would appreciate your prayers for Kristjana.   She had a very rough evening, and the doctors have admitted her for at least one evening because of pain.   Kenny and I just got home.   The little guy is resting comfortably now in  his crib.  We’ll be back over to the hospital in the morning.

Kristjana struggled on whether to announce she was pregnant before the 12 week mark.   She struggled more whether to share and write about the pain and symptons she was experiencing the past 7 days.   Even with our little one ending up in heaven way too soon, I am glad she did write.   Your emails and comments were good therapy to Kristjana and, so it seems, to many other people as well.  

I believe in sharing good news, even if the news is as delicate as a pregnancy.   That way friends and family, and  blogger friends can be praying along with us.   We will be grieving the loss of this precious life, and praying for another opportunity to share with you that another life is on it’s way.   It is difficult, but especially during a night like this I hang on to my favorite verses, Rejoice in the Lord always.   I say it again, rejoice.   Let your gentleness be evident to all.   The Lord is near.   Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and thanksgiving, present your requests to God, and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus…. Amen.

Rejoicing in the Lord, albeit with a heavy heart…….

Casey

    I am so sorry for your loss and will continue to pray for you and your family. When I had my misscarriage everyone kept telling me that there was probably something wrong with the baby and it was for the best. This was hard to hear and not comforting at all to me. Thank God I already had my son Tyler. I think it would have been a lot harder for me to deal with if I didn’t have him to focus on. And like I said I am now pregnant again, due in two months. I wish you two the best of luck in growing your family!

    i am so sorry that you have had to go through that. i had a miscarriage the very first time i got pregnant, but i now have a 6 month old, who is so happy and full of so much love. it is amazing what God will show us through our little ones, as i know you find so much joy and love in your sweet kenny. after my miscarriage, so many people came to me and told me that they, too, had had a miscarriage at some point. i saw so much of God’s love and compassion through these people, which gave me strength to move forward. i believe that when we grieve, God grieves, but He can use our saddest times to teach us even more about His perfect and infinite love.

    I’m so so sorry…..I felt it so much I had tears come in my eyes. I had 2 miscarriages back to back. I didn’t have any children at the time. But then I had my son a yr after the last miscarriage. All I know is God knows and sees all and He is in control. I’ll be praying for you and the family.

    My prayers are with you and your family. I know the pain you are feeling and the loss is unbelievable. The promise we have is that someday we will hold our children in Heaven and until that time we will hold on and remember our precious children that are waiting for us. May God bless you with comfort and knowing that He is there to hold you in the palms of His hands.

    People who haven’t had a miscarriage often say, “Well, good thing you weren’t very far along.” As someone who has had a couple of miscarriages I know that once you see the positive home pregnancy test, you’re already eighteen years down the road. A mom’s mind can’t help to plan and imagine the future. I’m sorry that you’ve had to go through such a difficult time. It isn’t a small thing and I hope you give yourself the time you need to heal. Blessings to you and your family. Kathy

    P.S. I’m actually a first time visitor to your site. I must have been led here today.

    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile and I am so sorry to hear what happened. At least you know that your little one is in the arms of the Father this very minute. We’ll be praying for God’s comfort to touch you and His love to surround you and your family. Blessings. Faith
