I heard from a friend this morning, asking for my prayers. I’ve copied the email here, removing identifying details:
Many of you know my friends Brandy and Doug. Her little girl Natalya had unexplained seizures earlier this spring. Natalya is doing fine and the doctors feel that it most likely was due to a virus. We are going to Natlaya’s second birthday party in a few weeks.
However, things have not been easy for the family. Doug is working as a truck driver now and this takes him away from the family 2-3 weeks at a time. They are both seeking better opportunities, but so far nothing has come up.
Then tragedy struck yesterday.
Brandy was expecting their second child in September and found out yesterday that the baby had passed away in vitro:
“Margaret Elizabeth Kxxxxxx was born at 1:08 this morning.
Weighing 5lb 3oz and 16” long, she was never with us on this earth and has passed on.
I am doing fine, healing and I have lots of help from Doug and my Mom, who came down early Sunday morning when we found out that Margaret had passed and I would be induced shortly after."
Please pray for the Kxxxxxx family. Losing a child is one of the saddest life experiences possible and words of true comfort are difficult to find.
I wish we could find words that would relieve their pain, but I cannot
imagine what those words are.
Thank you for your prayers…
