an unwilling goodbye :(
Sat, 05-15-2010 - 9:10am

Yet again I find myself waiting to MC this LO. There was no growth in a week's time between my 7 week and 8 week ultrasound, and no heartbeat. It is following the same pattern of my previous MC in November.

My stay here was too short, but I wish you ladies all the luck in the world!

I am at peace with this now, as we have actually been talking and will move forward with a foster to adopt program. I am fulfilling a lifelong dream to adopt a child in need. So if there is a silver lining in this dark cloud, this is it.

Happy and Healthy pg's to you all!

I am so sorry for your loss. I never like reading these posts from our members. But I applaud the fact that your looking forward and want to foster/adopt a child who badly needs a good family. Just give yourself the time you need to get over this. Best wishes for your journey forward.

Oh, April, I'm so sorry to read this news. I'll keep you in my thoughts as you begin the grieving process. I'm so pleased to know that there is something positive to come of this, though. I wish you much joy and happiness as you begin your quest to fulfill your dream of finding a child to share your love, your life, and your home with. Best wishes to you always. Please come back and share the news of your newest addition when all is finalized -- or better yet, if you're so inclined to stick around, please keep us posted on your journey. I completely understand if that's too difficult for you to do, just know that you're always welcome here.
