a test of faith or a twist of fate

today, my sister lost the 8-month old baby she was carrying in her womb. she went to her checkup and they found out that the baby’s heart was no longer beating. it is most probably a coiled cord death, the baby got entangled in her umbilical cord. this is so deja vu (and doubly painful) because my brother and his wife lost their first baby in the same way about 8 years ago. both were at 8 months, a month before they would have been welcomed to a happy family. of course it is quite painful, but i hope that the family will weather this like we did the first tragedy. let’s just say two angels were not yet ready to leave the clutches of heaven yet, and preferred their cozy cloudy cribs to the rambunctious place we call earth. i hope they look down to us with love as much as we would have loved and still love them.
