Heartbreak

My nephew, Austin, was due in 2 weeks to my lovely sister-in-law Andrea, and he died today. My heart is breaking as we deal with this tragedy. Andrea has 2 girls, whom are heartbroken that they never got to meet their brother. Austin is my mother and father-in-laws' first grandson. Please pray for Andrea and her family.
To Andrea, Clay, Savannah and Dakota,
We love you guys so much. We wish we could be there to hug and support you.
Austin must be a very very special spirit. He is with our Heavenly Father and Jesus again.
We miss you guys. Please stay strong. We love you all.
Love, Blake, Meichelle and Grace
UPDATE: Andrea still hasn't had Austin. She is only dilated to a 4, so it could be into tomorrow. I feel so horrible for her.

Andrea just had her beautiful baby boy. They said he has so much dark hair. He is perfect. We are praying that we are going to be able to fly up for the funeral. I would do anything to get there.

I don't even know what to say, this is so hard and doesn't seem fair at all. I love the hymn that says be still, for I the Lord God am with you. You and your sister-in-law's family are in our thoughts and prayers Meichelle.
