I can't even imagine going through this whole pregnancy healthy and happy, and having to face something like this at the end. The Opons are an incredibly strong family of fighters, but it is through hardship and pain that they have become that way and it just doesn't seem fair that their strength is being tested yet again. I know that they will be ok, but it would be nice if this didn't have to end with them just being ok.
I'm praying my heart out for that little boy, and for his whole family, who has waited so long to meet him.
And of course, I'm praying for our baby as well. I don't think I realized how important s/he already is to me until now.
