Why I love you

When I first started blogging the purpose was to share moments, pictures and stories with family. It slowly evolved into a place to vent, become transparent and meet people. The amazing world of blogging allows you to tear down the walls of your personal bubble and meet women from all over the world.

In sharing our story of struggling to get pregnant and our two losses, I have been able to "meet" women who have walked that same road. Back in august I was reading through my comments when I came across a woman who became very transparent in her comment. (I tried finding the original comment but was unsuccessful) She shared how her and her husband had been struggling through infertility. I went over to visit her blog and was always sure to check up on her story. She became pregnant and she was pregnant with twins!! I was elated for her! That was back in September. I knew that she was going yesterday to find out the sexes. I went to check to see if she had updated. Her update said that they couldn't find their heartbeats. Both babies had passed away. For a moment I stopped breathing. My heart physically ached for her losses.

Today Jeanna is going to deliver her two babies. Would you leave a kind word of encouragement on her blog. I can not imagine what she is going through at this moment.  Please pray that she will have peace and that she won't lose hope.

I wept for her. I wept for someone I have never met in person. I was brought to my knees in prayer for her. That is the power of blogging. That is why I love you and I love the relationships that have been built through blogging. You can reach out to the body of Christ beyond your everyday "real" life. This is more than a hobby, this is a community. A community I am proud to be apart of!

  1. From one who knows, hr road will be rough for a while. My heart aches for her as it ached for you and your loss. Each miracle lost was a mother's dream no matter the age. Hugs to you for sending the blog on and I have posted there the prayers for her

  2. I couldn't agree with you more, I think I have wept harder and prayed more fervently than ever before through this thing we call blogging. I will be praying for her, thanks for sharing.

  3. Absolutely heartbreaking...I visited her page and left a comment...I don't really even have the words. It's hard to understand why they would have to endure such losses. I guess that's why we can't try to understand, and instead must pray. :(

  6. That literally just brought me to tears. I don't ever think I will understand why some women (myself included) have to struggle so hard to be parents, while others (sometimes others who are ill-equipped or don't want to be parents at all) so effortless conceive and give birth. Uggg.... It just makes me feel so "it's not fair!" My heart is broken for her; no woman should have to go through that.

  7. Wow~ You've put into words something I've felt too since I entered the blog world. To care about the emotions and life of a woman you've never met and will most likely never meet face to face, it's just incredible. I'll be praying for Jenna, I can't even imagine.

  8. I just started following you today by clicking on your blog for photography tips- which is why it's so random that you posted this. Jeanna is a friend of mine. This has been a terrible loss and the fact that you don't know Jeanna and were still able to write something about her experience so eloquently is very kind. Small blog world.

  9. I don't know what to say...I clicked over and just couldn't leave a comment there. What can I say?

    I feel for all moms, including you Monica, who have had such heartbreaking losses. To be honest, I look at my two healthy boys and feel guilty. I wish there was more I can do. I pray for Jeanna and her DH.
