Keep My Faith Strong

I was 18 weeks, 5 days pregnant when my water suddenly broke. The Doctors told me there was nothing they could do to save the baby... she was just too premature. The next day, they had to induce labor to keep the infection that caused my water to break from spreading to me. My daughter had a heart rate of 136 going into labor but at 2:49pm, she was still-born.

A few days later, once we were home from the hospital, a good friend came over with a care package that included a giving key with the word Faith. A few weeks prior, we had been talking about the keys (I had never heard of them) and she explained the whole idea behind them. She had hers from a recent separation and she was passing it on to me. It reminded me to keep my faith strong even in the diffcult times!
