THREE is a magic number

THREE months after Lane and I were married, we found out we were expecting our first baby.

About THREE months later we found out that our expected baby would be a boy, a son...

THREE weeks later, Maternal Fetal Medicine told us they thought our unborn son had some serious medical issues that may not be compatible with life.

At 8:00am on a warm Friday in October, our little family of two became THREE.

THREE months later, a cardiologist told us our newborn son was in congestive heart failure due to an inoperable heart defect, and neonatology talked to us about hospice.

Today, our son, our blessing, our heart turns THREE!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Steven Jude!!  
We thank our Father for you and your joy everyday!

Mama and Papa
