i'm okay

Just wanted to make a quick post about our miscarriage and let you know Greg and I are okay.

Obviously, it's terrible news for us, especially considering our struggles with infertility.

We will get through this and are already talking about the next steps we want to take.

Our friends, family and faith have gotten us through a very trying year and we will continue to be strong. Many people have been through things more devastating than this and we are thankful for all the blessings we do have. We live in a time and country where medicine has progressed to a point where we can have the possibility of having a family. Sure, it cost a small fortune (or about 15 cows) for us to get pregnant in the first place, but I can't think of anything more important to spend our money on (or go in debt over).

Like I said, we'll get through this and I appreciate all your well-wishes. I waited until tonight to read all my facebook comments and I can't thank you all enough. You are so sweet and kind and every word was greatly appreciated.

Lastly, in a bit of good news, our lone heifer became a cow today. Yep, that's right, she graduated to motherhood, and we're waiting for her utter to drop. Never thought I'd say something like that, but why not?

Hope ya'll have a good night.

I am very sorry this has happened to you and Greg, but you sound like you are staying strong and staying positive, which will help tons. You have many people who love you and are praying for the two of you. I agree that this is worth going in debt over since you feel so strongly about it. Much love and luck to you and Greg!

Lisa said...

I am so sorry to hear this. Sending you love, thoughts, and prayers to you both.

Melanie said...

Lots of love and hugs to you both! You will get through this & continue following your dream, after all, we are used to the disappointment and I believe it makes us stronger every time. I had an ectopic following treatment last month and it helped a lot to scrapbook about the experience. It forces you to deal with the loss, to give it a home you can always revisit. I wish you all the best!

Elisa said...

Hugs and hugs to you and Greg.

Anna Sigga said...

I am so sorry to hear about your miscarriage April. It sure is hard to go through the emotions and still try to be strong. I had 1 miscarriage before I got pregnant with my baby girl in 2007.

It does take a bit of your souls to go through this loss but you and your DH are in my thoughts and I truly believe you shall be parents one day.
