"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life" Proverbs 13:12

Life is hard

Life is hard.

My Nephew is alive, but if he survives the womb he is almost garenteed to be highly disabled. Please pray for my family, and particularly my sister and brother in law. This is a huge, hard deal. And pray for our little nephew. We love him so much, we want to meet him and love him. We realise that being an Auntie and Uncle to a disabled child is a whole different thing to being a parent who cares for them every day and we ache for the hard road that our dear family is facing.

It is so strange that all this is happening in the lead up to a beta. I don't know how to think about it. In some ways the beta is dwarfed by the hugeness of this news. But in other ways the beta seems like a chance for joy and hope in a horrible time. And of course, nothing can take away or distract from the fact that we love this baby and we want it to stay.

Two days to go.
love Lady Grey
