born August 18, 1999 and died August 22, 1999.
Remembered by his Mom and Dad who miss him so much!:
Our son, Jacob, was born August 18, 1999. It was the happiest worst day of our lives. Jacob was our first baby. We found out soon after his birth that he had Trisomy 18. Of course, we'd never heard of it before. To us, Jacob looked absolutely perfect. He was small, 4lbs. 9oz., but he looked normal and healthy. We didn't notice his low set ears, or his rocker bottom feet. All we saw was our long awaited dream come true. He stayed in the hospital for 4 days. We took him home on Saturday afternoon. Sunday morning, around 3am, Jacob peacefully died in my arms. It still hurts to remember everything that happened that night. Sometimes, it is unbearable to think about. As hard as those 4 days were, I would jump at the chance to relive them all over again. I just want to hold him again. We miss him terribly. The only comfort we have is knowing that he is safe in the arms of Jesus. I don't think the pain will ever get any easier to deal with. We love him so much. We are blessed again with another pregnancy. We're scared to death, but also very thrilled that Jacob will be a big brother. We love you Jacob!
