Negative is my least favorite word

Negative pregnancy test. The words keep ringing through my head, I didn't think that's what I'd hear at all. Rhett and I were so excited for today and I'm sitting here in total shock,not knowing what to feel or what to do. I can't help but have a little moment of self pity. I know we have so many blessings in our life but all I've ever wanted is to be a mom, and it's feels so unfair that for 3 and a half years we've been robbed of this right. I don't even know where we'll go from here or what our next step will be. I just wanted to thank you all so much for your kind words, your thoughts, and prayers. I am so thankful for all of you.


  1. Dearest Bailey and Rhett,

    There are no words that I can offer that will dispel your/our disappointment but I want you to know that this is not the end of the world. You are to beautiful, wonderful people who have such a positive impact on so many people that I know the two of you won't linger on this nor will you let it eat away at what the two of you and all of us who love you feel for you. This is a speed bump, a rather "big" speed bump but this too will pass. I am not as atuned being a layman as to what the Good Lord has in store for you/us but I do believe that there is a divine plan for the two of you and I wouldn't give up hope, or faith, while on your journey through life.

    Bad things do happen to good people in life, Rob's cancer, the early passing of Jan's parents, the difficulties Rhett's cousin Jacquelyn endures everyday, but it is what we do when we face these difficulties, these setbacks and how we face them that makes us the man, the woman, the human being we are. I have watched the two of you for some time now, two strong individuals who found love and happiness together and built an even stronger bond and relationship and I have watched how the two of you have faced adversity and I know with heads high, tears dried, and with the strength of each other and all who love you, you will get through this and be better for it. As I always told Rhett after a tough game or a setback, the sun will come up tomorrow, and what you make of that day determines who and what you are....I have faith in you two that tomorrow will be a better day, and the next one a better one than before.
    God Bless you both, you are in Mom's and my thoughts, in our prayers constantly and we are there with you when you need. Mom & Dad S

  2. So sorry to hear this Rhett and Baily. Please let me know if there is anything I could do for you. You are both such wonderful people and I have no choice but to believe you will get your happy ending. If you need anything you know where to find me. -Collie

  3. The minute I read this, I immediately recognized the feeling of that horrible sinking knot in my stomach that Jeff and I all too often felt over many drugs,trials,and years. Nothing helps, and the next person who would tell me to relax and "it will happen," I would litterally want to punch square in the face. IT SUCKS! God, do we know...we love ya and think of you daily, wishing you the success that can be achieved, just never as fast or when we want it to be!

  4. Oh Bailey & Rhettie, we are so sad and so very sorry. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Please let us know if there is anything we can do.
