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…
