"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Awhile back I asked you to pray for my sister in law and husband. They had so many ups and downs in their pregnancy - things were ok, then not, then ok again. But for the last while, everything looked good again and they began to hope and allow themselves to dream about really taking home two babies. 

A few days ago they lost both babies. She was five months along. Later, she gave birth to a boy and a girl, perfectly formed. Precious.

Please pray for them....and their son who won't get to play with his little brother and sister. 

I hardly know what to write. I feel so disappointed....and being parents who also know what the death of our child is like, we ache so deeply for them. I think I feel the taste of bitterness....

"He shot his arrows deep into my heart. The thought of my suffering and hopelessness is bitter beyond words. I will never forget this awful time, as I grieve over my loss.  Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The unfailing Love of the Lord never ends! By His mercies we have been kept from complete destruction." Lamentations 3:13, 19-22

Grieving the loss of children, whom we will never get to see grow up is very difficult. My prayers are with them and all their family. The lamentations verses put it to words so well, and my heart aches for them.
I don't know if you have heard of it, but family bought me Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo after I lost our child and it was really comforting to me.
I will pray that blessings will come their way and great healing.
Sorry for your loss as well and I will be praying the same for you and your family.
