mOviNg oN...aGaiN

with a little bit of this...


and A LOT of this...


after having another miscarriage, that makes it 3 in the last year...we are moving on again. i have an appointment with my doctor, a specialist i'm seeing because i am considered high risk now, in a few weeks. we're hoping for some good advice (and good medicine!). we know our chance to have kids will happen, just not in our time. i know there is a lot i am supposed to be learning from all of this, and i feel like i've learned a lot and grown a lot already. i know my situation is a lot better than a lot of women out there. i feel lucky to be in my situation, even if it is not ideal. my turn will come!

I'm so sorry Melinda. I can't imagine how that must feel. I hope your appointment goes well and that you guys will get your baby.

Melinda, I have discovered that everything happens for a reason, and at the right time. Stay strong... God often places struggles in our lives, to prepare us for even greater blessings. We can't know joy without pain. I hope your appt. with the Doc will go well. Good luck..

Hey Melinda...I've been stalking (I admit) your blog for a little while now and have loved seeing how you're doing....

I just wanted to tell you that I'm sorry you've had to go through this. I can't even imagine what you have been/are going through, but you are a strong person, and I know that you and your husband will make it through these trying times. Like Kaitlin said, everything happens for a reason, and you guys will be blessed for your continuing faith! I wish you the best of luck with your appointments, and somehow, someway you'll get your babies, and you'll be an amazing mom!

Oh Melinda...my heart goes out to you and James. Please, please, please call or e-mail me if you want to talk. It truly helps talking to someone who has been there, done that. I am thinking about you & pray you will be comforted during this time. These trials can either bring you and James closer together, or certainly farther apart. Be sure to turn to each other and the Lord--I have learned you definitely can't get through it alone. :)

Sorry, one more thing. When we lost our little boy, we were given a book called "When Hello Means Goodbye." In this book there is a quote that I took to heart. This is for you and anyone else out there who has ever lost a baby. It doesn't matter how far along you were--a loss is a loss. "May you find comfort in knowing that love was all your baby ever knew." After 4 miscarriages and a stillbirth...this quote is so comforting to me. I hope it helps you too. Hang in there Melinda, everything happens for a reason.
