Baby David

On Wednesday morning, May 9th, 2012 at 8:50am, our first son, David, was born at 15 weeks gestation. He went home to be with Jesus.

Our hearts are broken, but beginning to heal. We are burying him today. My thoughts are extremely scattered so I'm not going to try and write about my experience yet, but I wanted to share a few pictures that are important to us.
 This is the tree on Ross' grandparents farm that David is going to be buried under
 This will be the view from his resting place
 Alexis is holding the memory box the hospital gave us and Isabel a teddy bear they gave us for him
 This is the box that they sent David home with us in. Ross built a wooden box to place this one in for him to be buried in.
 Alexis really wanted Baby David to be beside her

Ross took this one last night.

What a beautiful resting place! Such a tiny box... You are all in my thoughts and prayers today as you say goodbye to your son.

I never shared the photos I took from Samuel's birth, but maybe I will. I am pleased at how you are welcoming this child and his memory into your family. What courage and strength!

I am so sorry for your loss.
