Unhappy Paris souvenier news

I know it's been a while since I've received this news but it took me a while to be able to share this with everyone.

As many of you know, I took my wife to Paris the beginning of December. The two of us left for Paris but three of us came back. Darla was pregnant. We waited until Christmas to tell everyone. We thought it would be a great Christmas gift and all. Well, Christmas Eve she was in terrible pain. She knew something was wrong. She went to the doctor on the following Monday to find out she had miscarried. It took her a while to bounce back but she is doing well now. I really didn't want to open this topic up until I knew we were both back to normal (or as normal as one could expect ).

Anyway, I just wanted everyone to know that we are both doing well and are thinking of another trip soon I am going to Dublin, Ireland over St. Patricks Day so as soon as I get back perhaps another fun trip will happen.
