  1. Beautiful video, brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing! -Brittany Martinez

  2. Thank you so much for sharing a piece of Emily with us. Your family has continued to reaffirm my faith. -Dominique

  3. That was the most beautiful video I have ever seen. I still can't stop crying, it was amazing. I lost my baby boy June, 17 2005 to anencephaly. I feel like he is so forgotten and I think of him everyday. We ddn't have a Memorial or anything because everyone said since he was only 1 lb it would be weird, but I regret it everyday, I have no closer I feel. Any advice? Thank you so much for sharing you beautiful Angel with the world. My personal email is if you ever have time to drop some wrds of wisdom,thank you!

  4. Thank you for this. I lost a son at 16 weeks on Nov. 19th, 2010, his heart had stopped and his cord was around his neck many times. Now a dear friend, whom was due to have her baby near the due date of my son, has a daughter with Emily's condition. My heart aches as HIS families go through this pain. Yet, I trust in HIS word and I choose to believe he is protecting us in some way, HE says he will. Our small group has looked through your blog to help us help her. Your work here has a purpose, your daughters life is a gift, to more than you will ever know.
    Thank you again and may HE bring you JOY and bless you greatly for the faithfulness you show and the LIGHT you shine!
    In HIS love

  5. This video and your story have touched my heart. Thank you for sharing your deeply moving, intimate experience with your precious baby girl with me. I cannot begin to imagine the grief you must have felt having your baby girl for such a short time on this earth. Your family are truly angels for loving and honoring her the way you have and continue to do and for sharing your story to touch the hearts and lives of others who have also lost a child or to those like myself seeking to understand what you've been through. Much love to your inspiring, beautiful family!
