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

happy birthday to our sweet jonathan today.  we know he is having a grand celebration in heaven today and keeping those angels on their toes, i'm sure.  we plan to send a few balloons up to the party later this evening.

in the meantime, we'll be remembering what a privilege it is to be his parents and an absolute blessing he continues to be in our lives.

  1. Just posted on your FB, but wanted to say again that I am thinking of him today! It's funny, I almost think of him as much as I do Henry. They were so close it is hard not too! You have been an inspiration to me along the way. Your grace and faith are an encouragement to a multitude of witnesses. Jonathan has had such an amazing impact on the the world. Jonathan had two parents that valued his precious life and fought for him everyday. How awesome is God that he can do so much through someone so small! God bless you and your family today. Have fun celebrating his amazing life! -Katie
    P.S. I love the video just has much as the day you first posted it.
