It's been a long week. And it hasn't ended well.
Please pray for us.
I haven't told you this news because we wanted to wait, but, for nearly two months, my wife and I have been expecting our sixth child. (Our seventh, including Baby Torey - May her memory be eternal!) We discovered yesterday, however, that we had lost the baby.
It wasn't long ago that we were left wondering at this tiny heart, full of hope, beating furiously. Now there is only hard, impenetrable silence. And life moves forward, laboring soberly.
So pray for us.
Most Holy Theotokos, pray for us.
Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.
