Last night was the best night this week in regards to sleeping, thank you for your prayers. I have been constantly praying and seeking God asking for his help as I miss my son Hezekiah so deeply. The pain is always there despite what I do. When I begin to think it's all going to be ok, I fall apart. The loss of Hezekiah has affected me physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I want to take the things I have learned from my son and use it for God's glory. I covet your continuous prayers!
Above is a picture of my friend Jen (with her daughter Olivia Hope in womb), Hezekiah, and I. Jen came to see us in the hospital and I was so glad she did. Jen and I have not been friends long but we are traveling the same road per say so we are knitted deeply by that.
Jen and her husband Andy also have another daughter Gwen who is 2. Jen is due at the end of March. Olivia was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 some time ago. Jen was advised to terminate the pregnancy but instead opted to carry her blessing until God sees to take Olivia into his arms. May I ask you to pray for her and her family?
I remember before Hezekiah was born and I know Jen needs prayers. It is not easy to know your baby is not going to live, if they live at all outside the womb.
Jen has a blog where you can read up on her if you would like. It is http://fretzfam.blogspot.com
