Tori updated loved ones and supporters about her most recent struggle of losing her child. Still, she managed to count her blessings.
“Our weekend together was not quite as planned, but blessed by their presence and the help they provided us with an unexpected set of circumstances that nick and I suddenly found ourselves in. As several of you knew, we were about 15 weeks pregnant with our 2nd baby,” she wrote on Instagram. “Early Sunday morning after a rough couple days fighting a ‘virus’ of some sort, I went into sudden labor and knew something was wrong. Not long after we learned we had miscarried our baby boy.”
Tori explained just how devastating the process was for her and Nick. Still, both are trying to focus on their faith in God
“To fully labor and deliver and even see our baby boy was a pretty devastating process. Come to find that I had contracted an infection of pneumonia in the blood,”she revealed. “The emotions go back and forth from immense and overwhelming sadness, confusion and anger to a firm belief that God has this fully in his hands and will use this for good. We cannot always understand or explain, but we know that is true.”
According to the couple, this has been the toughest challenge that they have ever faced.
“We’ve endured some unique challenges as a couple so far, but never quite knew what something like this felt like and now we do. We have so much compassion and sensitivity to those who have gone through a miscarriage at any point and in any circumstance,” he said. “We know they all happen very differently. We are finally home from the hospital and recovering physically from the infection with antibiotics (already much better) as well as emotionally from this traumatic loss.”
While healing will take time, Tori thanked all of the people who have been supportive on their journey so far.
“This will take time. So many thanks to everyone who has reached out to us and who has been praying for us,” she wrote. “We had a pretty fun weekend planned, and it was turned upside down, but God knew we needed you.”
