“The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD.”
– Job 1:21 (ESV)
This morning we excitedly drove to my wife’s OB to discover the gender of our latest kiddo. She was 16 weeks and we knew this sonogram would settle the deal – boy or girl. After waiting a while we were led into the sonogram room. Moments passed and our doctor (who we love dearly) asked me to take the boys out. I knew right away there was a problem. I returned to see my wife in tears. The news: no heartbeat. Apparently the baby had died about ten days ago. Needless to say it wasn’t a fun experience.
We have had two prior miscarriages but this one seemed to have all the right signs of a healthy pregnancy. But good signs or not, we left with the burden that is losing a kid in utero.
Please pray for the Arrington family as we move through this season of loss.
God is good. His Gospel is our treasure. His Kingdom has no end.
