A member of our church who was pregnant with twins had an emergency c-section this morning and gave birth at 32 weeks. One of the twin boys died. They airlifted the other baby boy to Christiana Hospital’s NICU, where my kids lived for so many months. The mom is in a different hospital, in a different state, with two small boys at home, one in the hospital and one in heaven.
I understand their devastation. I’m devastated for her and am somewhat reliving 8 1/2 years ago when we went through something so similar.
Jim and the other elder are down visiting her right now, the two deacons (myself and another) are coordinating flowers, meals, prayer, visits–everything that they might need.
But nothing but God and time is going to help that hole in their hearts.
