    I havn't posted yet on this section of the forum before but I just felt like sharing this with the community.

    Over the past months we have been antisipating the arrival of our daughter Audrey to be born; our first child. We had been feeling her kick and listening to her little fast heart-beat with a stethescope at home. My wife Kathleen had a couple of baby showers to get all prepaired with the crib, stroller, car-seat, etc, and we painted her bedroom.

    Last saturday the 19th my wife mentioned not noticing her move as much. We gave it a few hours of laying still trying to feel her move as well as trying to hear the heartbeat. None were found. Out of concern we went to the birthing center wondering if they could hear the heartbeat through their better equipment. They also got conserned and then sent us to the OB-GYN ER at one of the local hospitals down the street. And to our worst fears they then confirmed with an ultra-sound that our baby daughter had passed away. She was due to be born on May 29th.
    Labor was induced on the following monday and she was born that afternoon. She was otherwise a very perfect beautiful baby, all 10 fingers and toes. 17" long and small at 4 lbs 7 oz. We were able to spend time with her before saying our final good byes. We read her some bible verses too before we layed her down for the last time. She looked very peaceful and at rest.

    Our grief is real but we still trust in the Lord. We do not know His absolute plan nor does He owe it to us to tell us everything. All my wife and I know is that He gave us the right amount of strength we needed to get through this. Time will help with the rest but for now we both have our own health and we will always cherish the time we were allowed to spend with Audrey. We know she gets to sit in Jesus' lap now and we will get to see her again some day. At a couple of instances a supernatural peace came over both of us, once while we were holding Audrey after the delivery, and again at a moment at her memorial service while everyone else around us was crying.

    A few weeks ago our pastor gave a sermon about how trials through life bring about spiritual growth. This is definitely true for me as we are going through this time. We just have to trust in God.

    Thank you very much.

    My wife will definitely need the prayers for a while I think. We spent all last week away from work with eachother but I had to come back to work this morning while she stays at home. Her last day of work was supposed to be today but obviously she left a bit early. Hopefully when she's ready she can find something to occupy her thoughts.

    Your right about the Good lord having plans that we may not understand....but faith, and trusting in his decisions will keep us going.
