I recently, August 6, 2009, lost my beautiful baby boy, Jonah David. I was due July 17, ironically enough I did not go into labor this day, but my grandfather passed away instead. I went into labor July 19th early in the morning and had Jonah via c-section at 2:41 that afternoon. I had a c-section only because labor wasn't progressing. He weighed 9 lbs. 2 oz. BIG BOY! He was screaming his little head off, and I loved that sweet sound. Little did I know that I would be the only time I would hear Jonah cry.

He was a miracle. Based on all medical science, I should have never carried him. But God had big plan for Jonah. Not only was I allowed to meet him but I was in his presence for 17 amazing days. It was the most unbelievable time that words cannot describe. He went through 4 open heart surgeries and he had doctors scratching their heads wondering how he was surviving on little support. But his journey with us ended on August 6th, in my arms. He has a much larger journey ahead of him in Heaven. He taught me more about life and myself in 17 days than I had learned in 34 years of being on Earth. He was a fabulous little man that touched so many lives. 8 weeks later, his doctors still keep in touch with us. He amazed them. His courage and bravery was more than most adults can muster up.
I am also blessed with a wonderful 6-year old boy, Elijah. He is the reason I keep going each day!

Your brothers comment was insensitive. Unfortunately,for you, he doesn't know any better. His spouse can and probably will be replaced,and he will forget the pain of his loss. Your precious little boy can not, as one child can't take the place of another,and your pain will always be there. You will always grieve and love Jonah. My heart goes out to you.
I am glad you found us, but sorry you are here.
God be with you,
Try and let that comment go...write it down on a piece of paper and tear it up or burn it in a fireplace.
get it off your mind and have confidence in your Mom feelings.
Try to avoid that person if they upset you too much. Stay around kinder, more understanding people who keep their comments to themselves.
Hugs coming your way.
Tomorrow will be 6 months since we lost our 39 yr old son to Sudden Death in his sleep. He will always be in our hearts. Kind good friends have helped us along our sad road.
I read about your beautiful son. I just wanted you to know that. Lisa (Chad's Mom)
