I remember the day so vividly when I heard the one word I had been longing to hear for so long……“POSITIVE”. I was ecstatic; excitement ran through me like lightening. I couldn’t wait to go home and tell my husband the news; we were going to have a baby! I remember getting home and being so excited to tell him, i could hardly stand it. The look on his face was priceless when I told him..... A moment I will never forget.
Then what seemed like the blink of an eye all that excitement was taken away from us by the one word no one EVER wants to hear … “UNFORTUNATELY”.
The Lord has a plan and a purpose for all his children; sometimes it involves heartache, pain and sorrow. Clinton and I experienced one of those plans the Lord had for our family that brought much heartache, pain and sorrow. Just when things were going wonderfully and we couldn’t be happier about having one of Gods Choice Children join our family…. Things changed in a blink of an eye. As we sat in the Emergency room with anxiety, fear and hope racing through us, we waited and waited…. The moment the Dr. walked into the room my hope faded as he said that one word that we didn’t want to hear….. “UNFORTUNATELY”. My heart sank, I started to cry and felt like the world had ended. I didn’t know what to say, I didn’t know what to do; I wanted this to all be a horrible dream but I knew it wasn’t. I looked over at my husband and saw pain rip through him. I wondered why? Why us? Why now? Why did this happen? We may not know the answer now and we may never know why. But we do know that everything happens for a reason. The Lord knows us and has a plan for us and sometimes that plan involves times of heartache, pain and sorrow. But he also won’t give us anything we can’t work through. As hard as it has been for Clinton and me, we are doing well. We want to say thank you to all those who sent their love and concern and the many prayers we felt as we went through this difficult time. We know the Lord loves us and experienced all that pain and sorrow we had to go through, we are never alone.
