Some truly sad news



I am in a slight state of mourning today. This morning at about 3:30a.m. my mother called up to let me know that my sister, Mary, had lost her baby. She'd had pain and bleeding yesterday so was rushed to the hospital where they confirmed the sad news. I am heartbroken for my sister and feel helpless being so far from her. All I want to do is wrap my arms around her and just hold her for awhile. I know some of you will say, but oh this happens to people everyday...and while that may be true...it doesn't lessen the pain any. I cannot even begin to imagine how my sister feels. And how do you explain to a young child that they will no longer be having a baby brother or sister soon. My niece Elena has already fallen in love with the idea of a brother or sister and somehow I just don't know how they'll explain it . So, I just ask that everyone out there please send your thoughts and your prayers to my sister and her family. I know they are going to need them.
