Saying goodbye before we even met

Bryan's brother Roger and his wife Angela delivered a little girl last night. They named her Riley Anne. We wished so much that we could be there for them. Bryan's parents were there and his mom called with the news around 9 pm.

I was antsy all day yesterday, waiting to hear something, yet not wanting to hear what I was hearing.

Then the last call came, and now we have to officially say goodbye, and we never got to meet her. I could almost picture in my mind our little niece, what she would have been like, how wonderful it would have been to hold and cuddle her. But it's not meant to be.

We want to be there with our family, yet Zachary is due any time now. We look forward to bringing our last child into the world, but we're so sad that they don't have the same chance now.

I ask for you to pray for Roger, Angela, and their two teenage kids and our whole family, as we are all hurting for them.
