We used this "6" to tell the kids we were pregnant. The kids had taped it on the shelf in the school room with potential baby names underneath. I took it down a couple of days ago, thanked God for the pitter pat of all the little feet in my house, knowing even more the blessing that each of them is.

I had an early miscarriage last month. I write this to acknowledge that we lost someone in our family. I truly believe that. And although we aren't really feeling deep loss, because we didn't get the opportunity to get too attached and because of the overall chaotic state our house is in general, I think there will always be a part of me that will wonder what this baby would have looked like, what his or her personality would have brought to our family, and come June, I will wish I was holding this baby in my arms. But God is good. He knows best, and does what is righteous and good. And this little one is with Him.
