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

  4. Lord God, all that I know to do is pray. Please wrap your arms around this family and hold them tight through what will be one of the best and possibly one of the worst days of their lives all at the same time. I pray that you give Greg and Lauren a peace that passes all understanding in a time when all we can ask is Why? I pray that whatever your will may be that this family will be able to feel the love that can only come from you! Thank you for such a precious family with a faith that amazes me! What a blessing to have known such beautiful people! I know that you are way bigger than the hurt in this world and that you are still in the miracle business! Hold baby Johnathan and hold his family! I love you and thank you so much for saving me, Amen

  5. Praying for you and your family

  6. The scripture that comes to mind as I sit and pray for you each is Romans 6:23: "In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groans that words cannot express." Praising God with you for the miracle of Jonathon, and praying with you for peace in your hearts as you undergo the most difficult time of your lives.

  7. Prayers are coming your way. God is with you. I am sorry things did not work out as you all had hoped. All that there is to do is pray and trust that God knows.

  9. I have just finished praying and I feel at a loss for you. I don't even know you yet I want to be there to hug, comfort and console your family. God is there to wrap His mighty arms around you today and every day after. You are not alone. I celebrate Jonathan's life as he today will most likely be his birthday. What a precious angel boy he is. :)
