Sad News

I've been away for a while and this email that Brandi sent out to our families really sums it up

"As some of you may or may not know by now, we lost our baby last week. I was 9 weeks and 5 days pregnant. It was a very stressful pregnancy from the beginning and we knew because of the low fluid problem that this was a possibility, yet we are very sad to have to say goodbye to our baby. Our baby will be buried here in Des Plaines by the hospital at All Saints Cemetery in the kids section with other early loss babies. We are very grateful that the hospital offers this service for families. Matt and I appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time."

Thanks everyone for their support. Things are getting a little better, slowly.

I'm so sorry.

I am glad that you are going to be able to have a funeral.

As hard as it is, I think being able to grieve helps a little.

You and your family are in my thoughts at this difficult time.
