Was loved. Will be missed.


I hadn't told you guys yet (was waiting til next week!) but we we've been expecting our third baby since December. We found out yesterday, though, that our little one probably never made it past more than a few cells big. My body just didn't catch on until yesterday.


I'm well. We're all well. And we've been getting lots of love, including long-distance love from my sis in South Africa.


Tiny four-celled baby Armstrong was deeply loved, greatly anticipated, and will be missed.  We're grateful for the two sweet, healthy babies we already have and are excited about the sweet, healthy babies to come!

I'm so sorry for your loss! I'll be praying for you. I had a miscarriage before I had my little boy and I was heart broken. But remember to get in the Word and only God's Word can heal, bring strength and comfort!
The Lord brought this scripture to my memory during that time:

"And David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because all the people were bitter in soul, each for his sons and daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God." 1 Samuel 30:6

I knew it was up to me to draw strength from the Lord! Because he will strengthen us!

Lots of love and prayers!

Sorry to hear this. Wishing you peace.

So sorry to hear of your loss. We too just went through a loss, but not of that of a child, but our 4-yr old fur-baby Copper was hit by a car this past Friday night. I know what you are going through in no-way compares, but he was my everything and while there are not esplainations, there are reasons.

With you in thought and prayers, Kate

Arian, this is the frist time I was on your blog and I am very sorry to read about your loss. We share the same last name. I enjoyed your blog. I don't have one of my own and really don't know much about them. I wish you and your family a happy and healthy future.
