Bittersweet

I have been feeling bad for the past week, so my doctor asked me to come in today so that she could check me out. She did an ultrasound and there were no longer heartbeats on the identical twins. We did see a heartbeat on the one baby. Please pray that this baby will continue to grow. The pregnancy is still in the early stages so there is a chance that this could be better for this one baby and there is also a chance we could lose this one too.

Thank you so much for all of your sweet messages, emails, phone calls and cards. We are so blessed to have so many great friends who care about us!!!

Dear April,

I don't know if you remember me from Founder's at Lake Powell but we missed you so much at St George. Clearly, you missed it for the best possible reason. I can't tell you how much I am hoping for you and your family in the pregnancy. The words just aren't there to express what I feel on the loss of your twins. I can only hope that this means that a healthy beautiful brainy baby, just like her mom is the end result!

Yes, I know I shouldn't even visualize at this point and yet, so often when we visualize our dreams that's when they come true! So I'm ordering up one sassy, cute as a button, sharp as a tack miracle baby for you and your family! I see her now ordering her big brothers around, being spoiled by her daddy and making her mama smile through tears of sheer exasperation! (you can thank me later) And if I'm wrong and you get another handsome boy then I'm happy to be proved wrong.

But I say, she's a girl, she's sassy and you all are going to make it!!!

All My Love, Erika Schmitz in California

P.S. And I'm praying for you- HARD!

Lord, we praise you in this storm!
April, you are one of the strongest people I know. Your prayers uttered on tearstained pillows were heard before they were said. One day you will be with "ALL" your babies in Heaven. For now, we'll pray for this one.......Psalm 46:10

My heart is saddened by your loss and my prayer is that, especially now, you may feel God's arms comforting you and strengthening you and for you and your baby to be healthy! Bless you for sharing your pain and please know that you are not alone and that others will be sending our prayers up to Heaven along with you!
