Sad news...

There has been a great loss in our family. One of my family members, Amanda and her husband, Clay lost their new baby boy on August 25th. He died within minutes of being born. There was no warning. All ultrasounds were fine. They went in to have a healthy baby boy, and left the hospital empty handed, and planning a funeral. They had an open casket funeral Monday, and I got the honor of seeing the little angel. He was beautiful....perfect. I will never in my life forget that feeling. I can't describe the overwhelming urge to just pick him up and rock him.

I will be getting a charity kit together in the next few weeks. I hope that you will help me to help the Lewis family in their time of need. I am hoping I can raise enough money to take some of the financial burden that this unexpected tragedy has caused. Please, if you can, pray for the family.

Rest in peace little one

Oh, that is so incredibly sad. I'm really sorry for your family's loss. When my mom died, I remember my granny so lost and sad. She told me that no matter what the age, a parent should never have to endure the loss of their child. Ethan and his parents will be in my thoughts and prayers.
