As I referenced in our last blog I was struggling with the lack of progress in our pursuit of donor eggs. The nurse called us and gave us information on two potential donors that she received paperwork on finally. We weren’t over joyed by either donor and we are leaving it in God’s hands. We told the nurse to process them as usual and we will see where we are when they are approved fully. We are hoping someone else comes up in the mean time. We don’t want to sound ungrateful but I feel as though it was God’s way of telling us that “she“ is out there, we just have to keep waiting. It’s comforting knowing that women are responding and are good candidates, now we just feel like we have to wait for the one that is right for us.
On another note.
My husband and I are big “Empire” fans.
*Spoiler Alert – Trigger Warning (Miscarriage)* if you haven’t watched the new season…
The oldest son and his wife lost their baby after someone pushed her down the stairs (trying to cause harm to her and her unborn child).
The way they have handled the emotions surrounding the loss has been very well done in my opinion. The mother has been questioning her faith and if God exists because as she was laying at the bottom of the stairs she pleaded with God to keep her baby safe, even if it meant He has to take her instead.
The father has continued strong in his faith but he is battling a mental illness and you see the pain but also you see him trying to just stay strong for his wife even though he is struggling so much himself.
In the latest episode his brothers sang him a song they wrote to try and ease the pain of his loss. I have now downloaded this from iTunes and listen to it daily. It’s a great reminder that although bad things do happen to good people, there is always a reason. “It’s in the plan.”
I cried as I watched how they portrayed the emotions, the pain, and even a little hope. The song itself continues to give me comfort. It reminds me to pray. It reminds me to keep looking to God for the answers we are seeking.
