I would like to extend my deepest sympathy in the loss of your baby. I know how hard it is to loose a baby. My daughter passed away in September at 11 months old. Just know that he no longer suffers and he is walking hand in hand with God. Everyday that little boy looks down on you and smiles because he knows how much he touched your lives while he was on Earth. I believe that my daughter knew her fate when she came to Earth and I think your son did as well. I think he knew he was only going to be on Earth for a short time but he also knew the love and joy that he would bring into your family. Again my deepest sympathy is with you and I pray that you find stregnth in one another to get through this hard time.

We are very sorry for the loss of your son. Our daughter passed away four days before your son. She was a preemie, who spent 3 months at Devos Children's Hospital. I do not know why your son passed away, but I can tell you that our daughter came home from the NICU last February with a terminal diagnosis. Hopefully you were able to get to know your son as much as possible during his time in the hospital. At times like these, it is hard for us to understand why these little miracles are put into our lives just to be taken away too early. After everything we went through with our daughter, I truly believe these children have blessed our lives because someone knew we were the parents for the job; the people who were strong enough to care for these children until their time on earth was up. We are praying for your family during this hard time and we would just like you to know, that you are not alone. If you ever need anyone to talk to, please call: 231-830-7724.
