We lost the baby
« on: November 23, 2006, 04:17:11 PM »
Thankyou for your prayers on behalf of my daughter Hannah Nicole.  It is with sadness that I must advise you that the baby died. Please pray for Hannah and her husband Todd as they go thru the difficult task on Tuesday of having labor induced to deliver the dead baby.  Also please continu to pray for Hannah for the problem that she has with her cervical dysplasia, she sees the he-onc doctor  after she delivers the baby to determine if she will have to have the surgery they spoke about earlier that will include a hysterectomy.

It has been a sad Thanksgiving at our home but we have been thankful for your kind prayers and thoughts.

Many Thanks,
Thomas

Thomas,

I am so sorry for this loss in your family!

I pray that our Lord Jesus Christ comfort and console you and yours, giving all of you strength, hope, and love to endure this time and grow closer to Him.

Once again, my thoughts are with you and your family at this time. Please let me know how else I can help.

This is so sad.  The baby of course was born into the arms of God, but this is still sad for the baby's parents and for you.  You have my sympathy and my prayers that your daughter will not have to have a hysterectomy.

 :( My humble prayers for you, your daughter Hannah Nicole, her husband and their family. I know personally the feeling of sadness and loss, for my sister suffered a similar tragedy with her first child, eight months into the pregnancy. May God grant comfort all.

I am so saddened to hear of your daughter's loss of her baby.  I pray that she will be able to have a child if it be God's will.  Lord have mercy on your servants Hannah and Todd in their time of sorrow and bring them comfort and hope in their years ahead.

Many thanks dear OC.Net Family for your prayers and thoughts.  We had the funeral yesterday and I wish that all of you could have heard the words of comfort that our pastor, Father Aidan said at the funeral.  My daughter, Hannah, husband Todd, and their three children were greatly comforted by the knowledge that their child had known their love even the womb and that the Orthodox belief that this innocent child is in the place of peace where there is no sorrow or sighing.  They left committed to live their lives so they could reunite with their beloved child, Ian William Montgomery. We are so thankful to have a true pastor who understands what it means to be an Orthodox Priest and a pastor.

In Christ,
Thomas
