"After suffering a brutal, very public miscarriage last November, we were overjoyed to learn we were pregnant," the Dawson's Creek alum shared on Instagram this weekend. "This time, we kept the news to ourselves. But last weekend, once again, 17 weeks in... the soul we'd been excited to welcome into the world had lessons for our family that did not include joining us in a living physical body."

Jennifer Panditaratne’s third-grade daughter had been seeing a reading specialist once a week before her Florida school closed abruptly in March due to the novel coronavirus. Since then, her child has had no contact with the specialist. Panditaratne is left to download her daughter’s special education material and sit with her as she does her school work—in between her own calls as a maritime lawyer in South Florida.“Is it the same material? Sure,” she said. “But is it being administered by a professional who knows what they are doing? No.
In his recent post, the actor explained that he rushed his wife to the hospital by ambulance "for another harrowing night of blood transfusions."
He added, "And as I stood by, grateful for the good people who navigated the maze of regulations to save her life—but helpless to do much for the woman I loved other than massage her feet and try to keep her warm (with my #DWTS robe, ironically)—something kept running through my head, again and again, which I now feel compelled to share..."
Van Der Beek went on to add that "we've got to take better care of each other."
"The world is in pain right now," he went on. "There's denial, shock, numbness, anger - all the old patterns we cling to when deep trauma is unearthed. And there are no words to ease that pain... to make the process hurt less or to solve it quickly. But the way out of it? Starts with an open, broken-hearted contemplation of this question: How can we take better care of each other? And to all the families who have gone through this... you are not alone."

"Still in repair. Discovering that healing happens at its own pace," he captioned a picture of the two on the beach. "Not the pace you'd like, and definitely not the pace at which the world keeps on moving... But it happens. And there's beauty in allowing yourself to be exactly where you're at. (Plus, it's not like you really have a choice, anyway.)"

SALAMINA, Greece (AP) — Greece is commemorating one of the greatest naval battles in ancient history this year at Salamis, the claw-shaped island skirting the mainland near Athens. It’s where the invading Persian navy suffered a heavy defeat 2,500 years ago, their large vessels unable to properly maneuver in the narrow seaways. Salamis, now known as Salamina, has become an extended suburb of the capital, a blue-collar retirement and summer home spot. © Provided by Associated Press A submarine approaches its naval base as a half sunken ship is seen near a shipyard on Salamina island, west of Athens, on Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2020.
