My wife was pregnant for about 3 ½ months when she had a miscarriage last April 19, 2007; it was the longest day in our lives… It happened at around 2:30 am, I was awakened by my wife’s call, “Pa!, lumabas si baby.” I couldn’t believe what I’ve heard… maybe I am just dreaming… I hoped.

I rushed her in the nearby hospital. I waited at the hallway while she’s in the operating room; every minute seems to be endless…

Around 4:30 am, Her Doctor called me and gave my unborn child, I held my lifeless child in my arms, let him/her feel my embrace, my heartbeat, my love and all my pain. I told my child, “I love you, baby, sorry if we were not able to take good care of you.” I cried and turned to God and asked, “Can I still worship You after what had happened?’, and the answer is clear in my heart, and it is a “Yes”. Despite of what had happened, I’m still grateful, I’m still thankful and I still believe in God. I worshipped Him, Sing Him praises and composed a song for Him…

“Even if I am hurting inside,
Even if my heart is broken,
I want to worship You…

I waited for waited for another 2 hours for my wife, All I wanted that time is to see her that she’s okay. I saw in her eyes how sorry she was, I told her that it’s not her fault…

Words of comfort and sympathy poured through text messages, thanks to our loving friends in the community (Light of Jesus Community), it’s easier to bare the pain with them. We baptized our child (it was also baptized by a priest), we named him/her “Gab”, It could have been, Rwen Gabrielle (if Girl) or Rwin Gabriel (if boy), I used my tears to baptized Gab and told him/her how sorry we are for what had happened. We both prayed and thanked Him for crying with us and for embracing us in our moment of sorrow and grief.

Yesterday morning is a brand new day for me and my wife, a time to reflect and to move on and face the coming days, with tears, I sung…

Basta’t tayo’y magkasama,
Laging mayro’ng umagang kay ganda,
Bawat sikat ng araw, may dalang liwanag,
Ang ating pangarap, Haharapin natin.

She smiled… we embraced…

It happened with a purpose and we know that God have plans for us. In the Bible, Job lost everything but God returned it to him, sevenfold and I know that God will do the same to us.
