On Sunday, I did something I never want to do again. I can only hope that I never have to buy someone I love a sympathy card.
Late last week my best friend gave birth to two baby boys and a baby girl at 30 weeks gestation. Sadly, the smallest boy wasn't able to meet us on this side of the world. Such a bittersweet day, to be told that your best friend has given birth, and had one baby ripped from her. For weeks we had been praying for a miricle, and that 'Baby L' would be born a healthy baby, and that the tests were wrong, but it just wasn't meant to be.
My heart broke a little on Sunday, I have no idea how my dear friend is staying so positive. I can only pray that this is the hardest thing she has to encounter in her life, and everything is smooth sailing from here on in.
On a happier note, the two surviving babies are doing remarkably well, and are the most remarkable little creatures. Pin It
