I have a coworker/friend who revealed last week that she is pregnant. I have had my suspicions for about a month now. We chit chatted about family reactions and announcements and keeping the news quiet at work for a couple of months because another coworker/friend is going through infertility treatment and has expressed severe jealousy and rage towards anyone else who becomes pregnant…
That all said, my (currently pregnant) coworker/friend had a sonogram and testing yesterday… her news is not good. The doctor told her that she has a 99% chance of miscarrying (there was some kind of science-y term for this type of pregnancy that has a 99% of miscarriage).
My heart is breaking for this woman. I’m not sure what to say. I want to write her a letter of encouragement, but how does one express the feels that are felt during a time like this with words?
I sent her a little note that included Numbers 6:24-26
24 “The Lord bless you and keep you;
25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
26 The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
I feel good about these words. I know I would be comforted if someone were to give me these specific verses during an uncertain time…
