This is our precious little angel, Samuel Jeffrey. We miss him so already.
I had a long post ready to share about Sam's birth day, but I just don't think I am ready to share yet. As most of you now know, Sam was born Tuesday, March 4th at 7:11am via a scheduled c-section. There were complications and he was transfered to the Children's Hospital in town. We eventually learned that he would not be able to live without the support of machines. He passed away that same night at 7:33 pm.
My husband and I have been astounded at the generous support we have received from our community. Especially from our church family at Life Church and Jeff's work Xenotech. Words truly cannot describe the gratitude we feel nor the depth of comfort we have received. And of course our families have been our rock. You all have surrounded us and lifted us up; and we will never be able to do enough to repay you all. Please know we offer our deepest heartfelt thanks for all you have done for us over the past week.
Over the next months I will likely share more pictures of our dear Sammy with you all and some stories or memories. But this is really all I can do at this point.
And I don't want to forget I offered an RAK for correctly guessing the closest measurements for Sam. Unfortunately we never got "real" statistics on his height and weight. We were told by one person he weighed 5lbs 1oz and by another that he weighed 6lbs 5oz. From holding him I would assume he was on the heavier side. And we think he measured 17 inches. Regardless, there was still one person who was closes to all those measurements.
JAN: I hope everything goes well for oyu!! YOu have a beautiful family!my guess is a boy7 pds 6 oz20 3/4 inches longGood luck!
So Jan, please go to the site I know you from and PM me your addy....your scrappy goodies will be on their way to you soon!!
Again, thank you to everyone who has offered your thoughts and prayers during this last week. We would love to individually thank you all. So please know we appreciate you.
