Family & Friends. With great sadness we write to tell you this past Monday we lost our baby to a miscarriage. Courtney was 11 weeks along when it happened. Our doctor informed us it was a spontaneous incomplete miscarriage that was not triggered by anything Courtney had done. Basically, these things sometimes happen. We ended up at the hospital where Courtney underwent a procedure to help complete the miscarriage. We are at home now resting & courtney’s body is slowly but surely healing.
We are heartbroken & mourning the loss of our child. But as 1 Thessalonians 4:13 reminds us we are not mourning without hope. The gospel is not just a set of intellectual beliefs. It is a source of very real hope every day. This week, the gospel gives us the specific hope that Christ is the answer to the brokenness of this world. We are grateful for our friends and family who are helping us to remember that by how they are loving on us this week.
More to come on how we are processing this. But for now, we want you to know what happened and that we are grieving....with hope.
