When Tragedy Strikes

I don't know how to even say this but Natalie over at Relaxing Doesn't Make Babies has just lost her baby boy Devin at nearly 36 weeks. They couldn't find a heartbeat at today's midwife appointment and she is being prepped for an induction.

I have never met Nat but we have been close friends for the past 2 years, as we were TTC buddies. I just can't believe this. Maybe because I don't WANT to believe this.

Even if you aren't the praying kind, please wish, hope and pray for Natalie, her husband and her baby boy.

Natalie, I wish I could be up in MA with you right now, holding your hand. Please know I am with you in spirit and I will ALWAYS be here for you. I love you, girl.

ETA: Are there any talented ladies who can make a candle in remembrance of Devin and in support of Natalie? I am working on having a blinkie made but if anyone could help me with this, I would greatly appreciate it. It's the very least I can do.

The lovely Alison created one for us to use:

In Remembrance of Devin Alin

Oh no! This is just terrible. Even though I've never met Natalie, she is one of my dear TTC 82' girl buddies, like you Kristen. I'm am just a lost for words. I can't imagine what she is going through. I'm praying hard for her, and Den, and their baby boy. My heart goes out to their family.

I have a candle up, you can take it if you'd like. If I need to modify it somehow, just let me know. Hugs.

It made my heart stop when I heard about it earlier today. If it made me feel ill, I can't even imagine what Natalie is going through right now. It's so heartbreaking and terrifying.

That is so devastating! She is lucky to have an online sister who cares so much about her, without having known her IRL.

I found your journal through a comment on another journal. She, Den and the baby are in my prayers right now.

I read Nat's blog daily, she and I and her husband have know eachother through the online community for close to 10 years now and I've also met them in real life.

When I came to her log this morning and saw the bazillion notes on her last post I didn't want to open the comments and see what was inside.

I've been crying all day for them. It is just so utterly, horribly unfair. I'm at a loss what to say. Thanks Kristen for being such a great friend to them, and I hope that somehow they can find the strength to look ahead.

Laura said...

Oh no! How very sad. Thank you for sharing. I will be keeping them in my prayers.
