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 have gotten the biggest kick out of seeing how much my children look alike....

here's kate at 2 days old...


 and here's evan at 2 days much like his sister!

and a couple more...these are at 3 weeks old...



oh, but let's not forget jonathan!  i didn't think he looked like either greg or me, so i never thought in my wildest dreams that evan might actually look like him...



perhaps it's just meant to be that i will always see glimpses of our jonathan in evan.  it doesn't at all make my heart hurt, although we still miss him of course.  instead, it's just been a sweet reminder that jonathan is still very much a part of our family.


  1. They all look so much alike! The boys never looked alike when they were that young, but really do now. I love that you can see glimpses of Jonathan in Evan - what a sweet blessing!

  2. So precious...all your babies look alike. They are all so beautiful!!
