Two weeks ago while watching Grey’s Anatomy, I, like most of us broke down while watching a young woman deliver her stillborn baby. I couldn’t fathom how that would feel to have to do such a thing. I could not handle the thought of it.
Yesterday I got a call from one of my best girlfriends. She was 24 weeks pregnant. She went in for a regular checkup and they could not find a heartbeat. She had to be induced last night to deliver her stillborn baby girl. The unimaginable was happening to my friend and her family. This was their frist baby. She was in pretty good spirits at the hospital last night. Just really nervous, not knowing what to expect about anything in the near future. When I left at midnight, nothing had happened yet.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE say a little prayer for them today.
Update: Baby Faith was delivered around 2:30 this morning. She weighed just over one pound. They both got to hold her for a little while.
