I don’t want to write this, and -in fact- I don’t know what to say.
Baby Seven will not be joining us for our Christmas picture this year.
Instead, we found out that this baby is already singing hallelujahs with five older siblings.
This was confirmed today (although we had thought things were going so well), and tomorrow I will be undergoing an outpatient surgery. Please pray for us. As though it isn’t enough to be grieving the loss of another child, we have so many medical decisions facing us. It is hard to think clearly when we are swimming in such grief. Please pray that our grief would not cloud our judgment. Please pray that God would give us wise counselors. Please pray for my protection, physically, tomorrow. Please pray that we would find comfort in one another, and in our miracle Gabriel. And please pray that God would give us peace in moving forward – whatever that means.
