Last night, April and I held Patrick for the last time as he has passed away and is now in heaven keeping God company.
Patrick's passing was very unexpected and April and I are deeply saddened and words can not explain the hurt and pain that we feel. The past 25 days with Patrick have been so amazing. He brought tremendous joy and love into our lives and we could not imagine him not being born. We will never forget the time that we had with him.
While we are in mourning we are also thankful for the short time that he was on earth. There are many couples that do not have the ability to get pregnant or to have children. There are also many families that lose their children at birth or shortly after. April and I were blessed enough to have two beautiful babies and enjoy both of them for a little over three weeks which is much more than many families receive.
Patrick will forever be a part of our lives and will always be remembered for the cute and adorable son that he was. I am sure that he is watching over his sister as she continues to grow stronger and bigger every day.
Please continue to pray for Savannah's health as well as for Patrick's eternal peace.
Below is one of the last pictures that we took of Patrick. One of his nurses suggested that we bring in a stocking to put him in and take a picture. The end result is below. He is so BEAUTIFUL.
