Well, we were hoping to pass along some good news to everyone. We found out about a month ago that we were pregnant again! We were so excited especially after we found out that the due date was Justin''s birthday, April 27, 2005. Anyway, we wanted to wait until we had seen the heartbeat and knew that things were going well before we started telling everyone. However, even after seeing the heartbeat, we started to develop complications....we had 2 solid weeks of ultrasounds and blood tests to monitor things. We found out that the baby was implanted extremely low and that fact could cause some problems. Well it did. Last Wednesday (15th), Chris began to hemmorage. An ultrasound discovered, much to the suprise of everyone, that the baby was still alive...his/her little heart beating away as strong as ever. So we waited. And waited. Unfortunately, on Friday, September 17, 2004, another ultrasound revealed that our little Baby H. had passed away....no heartbeat was seen. Chris went in for surgery (D&C) instead of letting nature take it''s course because of the excessive bleeding. We are very saddened, of course, of the loss of yet another child. Matthew had just been told that Mommy was expecting another baby and it''s been hard for him to understand that we gave another baby to God. Allison, of course, does not realize any of what has gone on in the last 5 months....thank goodness for a toddler''s life oblivious of tragedy. Thank you to those of you who were praying for us (our parents and siblings)....we ask those of you who are just now finding out to please pray for us again as we struggle with the realization that we now have two guardian angels watching over this family. God Bless each and every one of you.
