Our 100th Post

I was hoping that our 100th post would be something really exciting and special to announce. And, it is...Just not in the way we had planned...

Our babies are now in Heaven with Jesus!!! We are obviously sad and grieving their loss, but are humbled and grateful that the Lord used us to get them out of the freezer and into His arms! How awesome is that?!

We have cried today and are continuing to grieve their loss. But, overall, God has given us more grace and peace than we could've imagined. We plan to go back to the NEDC in September. The NEDC nurse told me to stop my current meds to begin a new cycle. As soon as my new cycle begins, I will start the BCPs, followed by Lupron in August, to hopefully rescue more frozen babies in September.

God's grace truly is sufficient. And we love our Savior and are so comforted to know that they are in His arms! :)

You have such a great outlook. I'm SO sorry. This is not the news I wanted to hear. But I do hope I get to meet you in September.

Ashley said...

Your outlook is so inspiring to me. I'm glad you are leaning on the Lord to get you through this tough time. I'm glad you'll be able to go back for the next cycle.

My husband and I were saddened to see your post. What peace, though, can be found knowing they are with their Maker! Our prayers tonight are for you all- the ones left behind. Perhaps we will meet during the September cycle. If the Lord wills, we plan to have our second implantation - after losing all the babies last Nov and then having 4 last-minute cancellations this year.
Psalm 18
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies. The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me afraid…In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried unto my God: he heard my voice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears…. For thou wilt light my candle: the LORD my God will enlighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places….The LORD liveth; and blessed be my rock; and let the God of my salvation be exalted……

I have tears in my eyes. I remember that day when I found out our babies were in heaven. You worded things so lovely, Jennifer. Grieve the babies and do something special for them...in your time, though. Just be what you need to be as long as you need to. (((HUGS)))

Holly said...

Jennifer and Aaron, so sorry to hear this heartbreaking news. I pray for you & the babies as they are lifted up to heaven. Hugs.

Oh sweetie, I was not expecting this post either. I know you are grieving and rejoicing at the same time. I have ached to hold my 5 children that went home early to Jesus. You offered your womb to give those little ones life, ETERNAL life. You are a faithful and trusting Mommy. Our Lord WILL honor that.

HUGE TEXAS-sized hugs,
Shannon

Angela said...

My heart and prayers are with you. I agree that the biggest comfort is in knowing that these babies are in the arms of Jesus and that we will get to see & hold these miracles one day!
I feel your pain. It's hard to look forward when your heart is hurting, but God is a God of HOPE and I'm excited to see what the next chapter holds for both of you!

Heather said...

Grieiving that your babies are not with you but so thankful they are with Jesus - can you imagine all of our kids playing and hugging on Jesus right now? I know I so desperately miss the two babies we lost last November - in fact, their due date would have been tomorrow. But rejoicing with you that our Savior is holding all of them in His loving arms today. So sorry for your loss, Aaron and Jennifer. Keeping you in prayer.
