A day we will not easily forget....

Today we had another appointment at 845 am to listen for heart tones. Our baby girl's heart has stopped, as the Dr. had anticipated would happen very soon. It has been 3 weeks since we got the first news around our girl being in danger. Tomorrow I will go into the hospital at 5 am, we will start medication to begin delivery. My Dr. says if all goes ok, all should be completed by early evening.

What we need.

Prayers. Love. Thoughts. Keep them coming.

More specifically around the delivery tomorrow. That there are no complications and I can not be left with any further physical pain. Pray for this very difficult goodbye. I was told today I would be able to hold her if i wanted that, and I do.

We love you all. Colleen & Sammy

Precious Colleen. Our hearts ache for you and Sam. What a hard, hard road you've been called to travel. We will be praying for you tomorrow during delivery and as you hold your precious daughter. Please take lots of pictures - you will want them.

Colleen, I love the faith you are expressing through this!!!! You know, as we do, that we are not created for this world - we are created for eternity. Your beautiful baby gets to skip all the heartache and sin and suffering of this world and go straight into our Father's arms. He has created her for greater things and she gets to go right to it! :) You and Sam have been the perfect parents and she's known NOTHING but LOVE her entire life! :) She is so, so blessed!

May God's peace that passes understanding overwhelm you every minute of today, tomorrow and the days to come. May you emerge even stronger and more in love with each other as you fight the good fight before you. We love you very much and will be in constant prayer for you.
