    My friends just had their 4th baby boy on Thursday. He had been diagnosed with Trisomy 18, so he will only be here with them for a few days (the average lifetime is 5-15 days).

    So could you guys pray for grace and comfort for them and their 3 older boys as they cherish their few precious moments with him and prepare their hearts for when he goes to be with Jesus. His name is Tristan.

    Thanks guys.

    I can't help but think that this may be the reason she said, "Hey, I don't need a baby shower -- I've had my share." (Some ladies planned one anyway, as a surprise, and when she came she burst out crying...) Maybe they knew back then and didn't want to tell... I can't imagine what it would be like to lose my child. I have been waiting to hold little Tristan... now I can't. But what's more important is that Taryn and Bob and their boys are able to hold him. I get all teary-eyed every time I think of them.

    I am so sorry. I lost a niece to a T18. Micha lived for 7 hours. Micha and my Kaitlyn have a memory plaque set in beautiful park at the south end of Lake Washington. I remember that the words that comforted me the most when I lost my daughter, was that she would be remembered, and that she would be missed. I will think of your friend and her much loved son.
