Sad news

(Brendan)

I wanted to do a quick post to let everyone know that recently we found out, to our joy, that we were expecting a new child. However, last Friday at a very early 6-week ultrasound things looked concerning for the baby, and just yesterday at a follow-up ultrasound Molly's doctor confirmed our fears, and saId that a miscarriage would likely be occuring sometime in the next two weeks. I want to keep this brief, I'm sure you can imagine how sad this is for us, especially right after Henry's passing in December. We continue to submit to God's holy will.

Though trivial, I did also want to update to say that our home inspection went very well and that there were no issues. Thank you all so much for your continued generosity in praying for us. We also hold up in prayer all of your intentions.

oh, I am so sad for you all. Know that as I am reviling Paul's final week with us and coming up on the one year mark, I will be offering up my sufferings for your family as well!

Kristina,
You are ALWAYS remembered in our prayers as well. Blessings to you especially this week.

Our prayers continue to be with you. A phrase that has constantly been with me (though I can no longer remember where I read it) is "I thank the Lord, for this trial is a gift of his love". My trails seem so trivial compared to the deep sorrows your family has endured this year. I pray that you will always come to know the immense love our lord has for your family, particularly in the midst of your trials.

Molly, I'm so sorry and will be praying for you, Brendan, and your entire family during this time. It's often hard to see God's plan during times such as these (been there so I know) but you're family has such a wonderful way of seeing God's love and grace in the midst of trials. I really admire you and your open heart--thank you for sharing--even in sorrow. Your faith is an incredible testament!
