In Orlando, we enjoyed a thoroughly relaxing and fun 6 days together. We visited Shamu at Sea World, made our way around Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure and ate at a number of great restaurants!
Upon getting back, the madness of impromptu showings and the task of keeping the house in selling condition began. It hasn't been so bad, but I know I am under a serious amount of underlying stress and it's taken its toll...
Just this past week, I went to my 1st OB appointment at 10 weeks gestation and we were told the awful news that our baby had no heartbeat and stopped growing at about 7 weeks--around the time we were in Florida.
Our family has definitely been an emotional wreck these past 2 days, but we are trying to look forward into the future and are hopeful that when the time is right, we will try again. Sadly, we were all looking forward to welcoming this child into our family and we have all taken the news very hard-most of all myself and Yasmeen. I am trying to take 1 day at a time and keeping an attitude of faithfulness that will see us through this time. It's hard, but we'll make it! I am grateful for the support I have received from so many of you and we sincerely thank you for your concern and thoughtfulness.
Here's to transitions...both good ones and bad ones, but nevertheless necessary ones. For it is through change that we grow and learn to appreciate all that we are blessed with. May the next time I post here be a time filled with good changes and happy news!
