Some sad news today. July 17, 2009

Yesterday Kellen and I received some very sad news. We went in for our 8 week sonogram and there was no heartbeat.  We were absolutely shocked because everything was moving along perfectly. As you can imagine we are both terribly sad.

One thing we know is we do not always choose our circumstances but we can choose how we see them and this is a test of our ability to do just that. 

The most challenging thing any of us face when we put our hearts on the line and go for our dreams is handling the disappointments and failures along the way.  We can handle this, especially with so much love from our family, friends and lovely community.

We took the chance to live out loud and share all the steps along the way so that those of you on your own challenging journey will find comfort in knowing you are not alone. 

Right now the sadness is strong but knowing soon we can try again gives us relief. 

I hope if you are facing any disappointment or sadness in your life right now that you know you can and will get through it. Just feel it and then let it go and think of it as growing pains. With each disappointment our wings to fly grow larger and stronger. 

Thank you for all of your love and support.

Patricia and Kellen
