Tonight, I'm Sad

After having a lovely day this afternoon with some friends I came home to some sad news.  My best friend Claire has lost here baby again!  She lost her first baby back in the summer of 2008 due to a condition called non-immune hydrops.  She has lost her second baby, again to the same condition (in the fetus) she was about 5 months along.

My heart just breaks for Claire and Patrick and I wish I could hop on a plane tomorrow to be with her.  They want to be parents so badly and I know they would be AMAZING parents.  Why is it that people who really shouldn't have kids can get pregnant and have healthy babies without trying and folk who would be amazing parents either have trouble getting pregnant or keeping the baby?

Its all a part of the mystery we call life I suppose.
