Un-Telling Everyone

I have to be honest, I'm usually more than eager to get online and update my blog. I'd love to say that I wait for notable events to happen and write about them, but I usually find myself blogging about day-to-day things in simply an effort to represent my life... the good, the bad, the funny, the interesting, and the terribly boring. Lately, my posts have represented the sheer ecstasy of discovering that the time was right to add a little one to our family and the events that followed. I privately blogged throughout the whole process, knowing that I would eventually get to add them to my little online diary.

As for this post... well, I've been dreading writing it for about 12 days. I'd love to skip over this and continue blogging about future events, but somehow I didn't think that would be an honest move. There's not a nice way to phrase this, so I guess I should just say... I'm no longer pregnant. Wow, my heart just broke all over again when I typed those words. There's nothing witty or positive to add, there's no silver lining, and it's just an inevitability that we've had to un-tell everyone.

We appreciate the love and support that we've been given during this whole ordeal and are only able to work on getting past it (not over it, as it was aptly put by someone far wiser than I) because we've been kept afloat by friends and family.

Rory, I am praying for you. Please take your time to grieve and move past this in your own way. As someone who has been through this pain, I would be happy to talk anytime you want. We'll be thinking about you and Joe.

Rory and Joe, My heart is breaking for you. I know you two are strong and will get through this. I have had the experience of "un-telling" and it wasn't something I wanted to do either. Just know that it does get easier. I am here if you need me and you have such an incredible family I know they will all be a comfort to you. Jeri
