Some Sad News...

Sadly, at a routine 14 week OB appointment our consultant could not find our baby's heartbeat.
A scan confirmed that our little one had died.
It was only over the weekend I had my first dream of the baby where I felt her tell me that she was a little girl.
I truly believe that she gave us this gift before she left us so that we would always know her and so that we would be able to name her.
We had chosen the name Eliyana Shalom for a girl which means God Answers Peace.
We have peace in knowing that she rests saftley in Our Heavenly Father's arms. Just seeing her in Jesus's arms, in my heart, has given so much comfort.
I feel very empty and a little lost and very sad yet I know how very blessed we already are to have the beautiful girls we have.
God knows His ways and they are right and good and I know how lucky I am to be able to have my faith.
I'll be taking a couple of weeks break from the blog though. Just a little time, to cry, pray and heal.


  1. my beloved friend,

    i weep with this news.

    how blessed Eliyana Shalom was to have your womb as a home.

    your faith words are a testament to your worship. you have blessed me profoundly in the telling, suzy!

    as i bring you before our Father, i ask that He would comfort you in the most intimate of ways. i know that He meets you right where you are.

    whatever you require of Him ... in whatever manner ... you must go to Him and allow Him to provide.

    i send you and your beloved much love. so very much love.


  2. I am so very sorry!
    Father God, please comfort this family right now...may they find your sweet love this day and in the days ahead!

  3. I was so, so sad to see this. May our Father comfort you and reveal His love to you in the little things in upcoming days.

    Her name is so beautiful, and fitting.

  4. Suzy, Oh I am so sorry sweet friend. I, too, pray for God's comfort to you at this time. I wish I could give you a real hug.


    (using my son's sign in account this time...)

  5. oh Suzy,

    I am so sorry to read this and will keep you in my prayers.


    I am sure Eliyana Shalom will be a big intercessor for you in heaven.

At the moment I am going through a busy season of life with 5 girls under my wing! I may not always be able to respond immediately but please know that every word left here is read and appreciated deeply.
