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. Uh la la! So jealous. There is nothing better than the beautiful white sandy beaches of the Gulf Coast.

  2. As I tell you always--JEALOUS!!!!!

    So sad, the thought of what is happening and to come. Praying, praying, praying for God's mercy on the coast.

    Been thinking about you a lot!!!
    Lots of love xoxo

  3. Oh how I miss the gulf....Gulf Breeze, P'cola Beach, P'cola.....Oh my heart....The Lord is so Good to put such beauty here for us....I wept when Opal and Erin came thru...came down afterwards and saw such destruction....We were on P'cola Beach and had to leave to go back to the state we lived in when Ivan was enroute...Then back to see the devastation and haven't been down for almost 5 years....I am praying for the Lord to turn it back out into the gulf so they can get it cleaned up out there and not on the BEAUTIFUL WHITE SAND....
    Thanks for the beautiful pictures, Lauren.
    Love ya,
    Sandy in NC
