As of yesterday, it has been two years since we started having miscarriages. What have the last two years looked like? Lots of tears, doctor's appointments, and bloodwork. And still, no answers. We're begging God for the next two years to be different.
February 7th is otherwise a fun date for us. It was the date of my salvation in 1988, and it was the birthdate of my childhood hero, Laura Ingalls Wilder. In 2002, it was the date of our first (and only?) real date in San Diego. Dan had picked me up at a friend's house after work about 3pm and we spent the rest of the day/night together, until midnight. Those were the days! February 7th, 2006, was also the official due date for Russell. Some days just 'stick out' on the calendar, and February 7th will always be one of them.
I am so thankful every day that God sent Dan into my life. As I've shared with my sisters, "any guy can be with you in the good times. You want a guy that will be with you in the bad." Dan has been a champion the last two years and I am so thankful for him.
