Our doctor’s appointment didn’t go well, we had a failed miscarriage. I’m devastated.” Jamie a nurse continued, “I can’t thank you all enough for all the love and support, prayers and encouragement you have sent us. You have no idea how much you have helped Doug and I. You guys are the most amazing community of men and women, and I hope you know how much we appreciate all of you.”
This loss is two years after the couple miscarried their first child, a boy they named Johnathan Edward.
