This is the story of our precious baby boy, who was diagnosed prenatally at
17 weeks with a fatal chromosome disorder called Trisomy 13. Although
Jonathan's condition is considered "not compatible with life", we desired to give
him every chance at life. Our prayer is that those who are touched by our story
are drawn to God, who is Life Himself. John 14:6

heeere's jonathan!

we are always so incredibly blessed by our specialist and his staff at the sacred heart-pensacola perinatal medicine office everytime we go. they are so wonderful to us and we are very thankful that they are part of our journey with jonathan. at our visit this past week, they especially blessed us by allowing us to have these short video clips of jonathan via ultrasound. in a situation like ours, these memories are priceless.

i uploaded 5 short clips to make one video montage. if you watch closely, this is what you can see:

clip #1: jonathan's profile, (top of head is pointing left) showing his mouth moving, his heart beating (far right on screen.) his hand is near his chin.

clip #2: up close video of his heart beating. looks pretty good at 146 BPM. only a couple of stutters.

clip #3: full view of his face, turned toward the screen. you can see his eyes, nose, mouth, teeth buds, etc. the view moves in and out of focus.

clip #4: profile view. note his fingers waving at the screen (his hand is up near his eye and the other is by his chin.)

clip #5: full face again, with heart beating. if you look closely at his face, you can see his left eye moving around.
