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

i wanted to share this picture that i took tonight of the sunset over navarre beach. what a beautiful taste of all the splendor jonathan must know! i'm so thankful that the Lord shares these crumbs of heaven with us, that our appetites might be increased for our true home.

"The Mighty One, God, the LORD,
speaks and summons the earth
from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets.
From Zion, perfect in beauty,
God shines forth.
Our God comes and will not be silent;
a fire devours before him,
and around him a tempest rages."
~Psalm 50:1-3
