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

  1. My name is Kaye and I have just read your story. My prayers are with you.

    I am also a crocheter and every baby blanket that I make, I will remember your story.

  2. Tonight I will sleep beneath Your feet, O Lord of the mountains and valleys, ruler of the trees and vines. I will rest in your love, with you protecting me as a father protects his children, with you watching over me as a mother watches over her children. Then tomorrow the sun will rise and I will know where I am; and I know that you will guide my footsteps.

    Prayers to you Lauren, Greg, Kate and Jonathan

  4. A rose once grew where all could see
    Sheltered beside a wall,
    And as the days passed swiftly by
    Its branches spread, straight and tall.
    One day, a beam of light shone through
    A crevice had opened wide-
    The rose bent gently towards its warmth
    Then passed to the other side..
    Now you who deeply feel its loss
    Be comforted...the rose still blooms there-
    Its beauty even greater now
    Nurtured by God's own loving care.

    A life that touches others goes on forever.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all....

  5. Dear Greg and Lauren,

    My heart goes out to you. I read about your beloved Jonathan David and what a heartbreak this is for you. The Lord works in mysterious ways and I am sure that Jonathan David had a place in the Lord's role for him to be angel at an early age. We may not understand it, but the Lord needed Jonathan more than this place we call Earth. You have to believe that. My prayers are with you as you try to understand this sad tragedy.
