Sad News

I know most of you have probably heard, but Katie and I went to urgent care this weekend, and Katie is having a miscarriage. This is a pretty sad time, and rough on Katie and I, but we are glad to live our lives so closely to so many people, thank you for your excitement with us, and for grieving now with us, too. Please pray that everything goes smoothly, and that there are no further complications.

We love you guys and miss all of you,

Please pray for us, Sean and Katie

p.s. please feel free to call Katie (or me, but especially Katie), I never know if I should call someone during a sad time, but we wanted to tell everyone that we look forward to your calls, and it has been a huge help to us hearing from everyone.


thanks

Hi Katie Long-johns. I am so sorry for your loss. I have been praying for you and Sean, trusting in our Savior to carry you during this painful time. Please let me know if I can do anything for you! I would love to serve you in any way that you need!

We are thinking of you guys constantly, and praying. One thing I was thinking when I saw you both Sunday is how much God has blessed you by giving you each other...you two are very affectionate and kind toward each other. I really see how God made you for each other and I pray you will grow even closer at this time, hoping in "storehouses of snow" I believe He will bring.

All our love to you both.

Sean and Katie,

I am so sorry for your loss. I have prayed for you over and over and will continue to pray that in this great trial, somehow, God's love and comfort will be felt by you. He is aware of every tear shed.

Katie, I am so,so sorry you lost your baby. I loved how you told me you were pregnant. You said, "I have a baby in me!" You were so excited about that little one. I pray now as you and Sean grieve that God will comfort you as only He can. You probably already know this from losing Ryan, but God seems to give us glimpses of Himself that we would see or understand no other way. I also had a miscarriage and, as you know, lost our 10 day old baby girl. I would love to talk with you if you ever feel like you would like to do so. Hugs to you and Sean from all of us!

Dear Katie and Sean,
I started crying when Mike told me the news. I am praying God's comfort for you both...and for His healing for your hearts and for Katie's body. I love you both so much. You're in my prayers and close to my heart.

P.S.~ Maybe your baby is playing with Sam right now...I hope that's not insensitive. I just miss him too and can only imagine what it feels like to lose a child.
