Personal Note

Since I announced my pregnancy here, I feel the need to announce its end.

A few weeks ago, at a routine ultrasound, my baby was diagnosed with severe hydrocephalus, meaning that fluid was accumulating in her brain. We were in Houston late last week for a second opinion and we lost the baby.

The sadness, which is great, is tempered by the fact that we are grateful that our little girl was spared what would have likely been a very short and very painful life. We’ve been awed by the peace of God, which passeth all understanding.

For reasons I can’t articulate, I didn’t want to open comments on this thread.
