Sadly, Mom had a miscarriage on October 19th. She was eleven weeks along, but the baby
seems to have died at about eight weeks.
We named the baby "Hope" which means "trustful." We didn't know if it was a boy or a girl, but Melody brought up the fact that Hopeful joined Christian on the journey to the
Celestial City in John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress.
We are grateful to know that this little one is with the Lord, along with our other six siblings.
Mom is recovering well, and we are grateful for the short time this little one was with us.
"For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb."
