Lisa asked me to share some sad news. Yesterday she went for a prenatal and they couldn't find Fiona's heartbeat. It was confirmed via ultrasound. Fiona came into the world at 1:57. She was 5 pounds, 14 ounces. Please keep Lisa and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this sad, sad time.

Lisa, my heart breaks for you. I'm sending you love and healing and prayers.

oh my god, oh my god. this is so awful.
ooooh, lisa, i dont know what to say. my heart breaks for you. i had a stillbirth last year and i can guess just some of the things you are going through but we are all so different. there is a community of women who have been thru this and they are some of the most loving people in the world.

let people love you in their awkward way, do whatever to get what you need. there is no right way here. all my prayers for you and your family.
