A PIECE OF OUR HEART

And he said, “Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.” Job 1:21

It's with a heavy heart that we write this blog post today. This past Wednesday (December 2nd) we discovered through several ultrasounds that our baby had no heartbeat. This week the baby was suppose to be 15 weeks old, but according to our ultrasound the baby stopped growing at about 12 weeks. On Friday (December 4th) the baby was delivered naturally at about 12:30pm. He had such a perfectly formed little body. Ten fingers, and ten toes. Beautiful! The baby was a precious boy, and we named him Isaac Ray Sweazy. 

Today we buried him, and it was a beautiful time. Cole (age 8), who is Steve and Kristen's son, carved an 'I' in a stone to lay over Isaac's grave. 

We decided to name him Isaac, but not because of the meaning of the name. (Isaac means laughter.) We named him Isaac because of the faith and trust Abraham had in God when he was told to sacrifice his only son Isaac. Having to "lay my Isaac down" has been a painful trial, but the Lord has given us such peace and love. He also sent us dear friends, just in time to bring hugs, tears, and sweet healing laughter. 

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to our family during this painful time. We love you.

Because of Jesus,

Natasha

  2. Oh Natasha and Charlton! I am so sorry to hear this. Your family is so precious and Spirit-led! God will grant you all strength necessary to fully forge ahead; always, always keeping Isaac in your heart!
    BTW: it is an awesome wonder of God's that He forms us perfectly in the womb. After seeing my own child at the same age (12weeks), never again can there be any debate on Life and when it occurs! Praise God for His control!
    Thanks for sharing.
