The Sacredness of life

I have been thinking a lot today about the sacredness of life.  I had the pleasure last week of watching my baby sister's Ultrasound of her new baby girl in her belly. They were even able to capture a yawn. It is the sweetest thing. Then yesterday I got the heartbreaking new that my sister in law Al, who was 20 weeks along went in for a routine appointment and found no heart beat. She delivered her baby this morning. I cried. I that about that her and what she had to do. And cried. And thought about all my pregnant sisters right now and I cried.

Now I know this is a sensitive topic, but I just know right now as much as ever that I am Pro Life. 
I am praying for Mothers that experience losing their children.
And especially for my Brother and his wife and their baby boy who didn't get to come home. 
I am so thankful for the knowledge I have of our Savior and his plan for us and hope that he is able to comfort them in that way that none of us can.
*Love you guys*

I just can't put into words how I always think that (well at least I do) that once you are past that 12 week mark that you are in the clear but you're not. Even when you deliver that bundle of joy there are still chances of issues.

Life is so precious! My heart goes out to your SIL and all those who have lost a child, whether they are in the womb or have lost their child.

I've been thinking about them all week. Send them love please.

Wow, this is overwhelmingly heart-wrenching. I've been thinking a lot about this since you posted it. It's so strange to go from feeling invincible, to human. We take things immensely for granted, especially the gift of life. My heart, prayers, and quite a few tears go out to them. Much Love.
