A few weeks ago I wrote the following in a blog post:
“Susanne and I are incredibly happy to share that if all goes well, we will welcome a new little brother or sister for Danny sometime this spring.”
When I wrote this I was careful to write “if all goes well”. Sadly, sometimes things do not go well. We are so very sad to share that this baby will not grace our lives. Su started experiencing the classic symptoms of a miscarriage earlier this week, and an ultrasound confirmed our worst fear--that this baby was not staying with us.
The human reproductive system is very good at letting nature take its course when something is not quite as it should be. But the human heart is not so good at it.
