Dear Baby Jonathan, we all miss you and love you so much. I wanted you and loved you before I even knew you existed. All the sickness and the bedrest I had to endure didn't matter at all. It was all going to be worth it when I finally got to hold you. I couldn't wait to see the little hands and feet that punched and kicked and kept me awake all night.

And then you left us, just six weeks before you were to be born, your little heart just stopped beating. Daddy & I cried so hard and we still do. And then you were born, 4 lbs. 12 1/4 oz, and 19 1/2 inches long. You were so beautiful and so perfect. I wrapped your tiny fingers around my pinky and just prayed for you to squeeze it. I wanted your little eyes to open just one time. It was so hard for me and Daddy to say goodbye to you.

The only comfort we have is to know that you are in Heaven with Jesus now and that He is taking good care of you. Because of your death, we have been able to share Jesus with people we probably wouldn't have talked to otherwise. You have taught us so much about God's grace, and His comfort and peace that we never would have learned if you were here with us now.

We miss you Baby Jonathan. My arms will never forget how it felt to hold you. And though my heart aches for you each day, I know you live in heaven and you live in our hearts. We will never forget you sweetheart.
Love, Mommy
