    Thank you for sharing your story. You are very honest and courageous for sharing your thoughts. God works in many ways in our life that we don't understand immediately but in time we take comfort in knowing that all things are for His glory and our ultimate good.

    My wife and I lost our son only two hours after birth (one year ago in January) due to a condition known as Potter Syndrome. We knew at 24 weeks that the chances of Skylar lasting more than two days was next to none. The doctors told us that we should terminate that same week they gave us the terrible news and repeatedly insisted even after we told them that as Christians we don't believe in abortion. We went to a hospital that respected our wishes. Skylar was a beautiful baby boy (over 9lbs.) who shared his life with us for two amazing hours. We donated his heart valves in hopes of being able to help another family (perhaps two). Our full story can be found at the site below.

    Wow. Thank you so much for sharing all your emotions so freely. I cannot even comprehend what you went through, but sobbed as I read your words. My heart broke for you.

    Found you via MckMama!
    Have a great weekend!

    About Us

    • Starting a family is a soul-shaping, world-altering experience. Unfortunately, in a culture of competing values and protracted timelines, couples are increasingly backing their way into parenting or missing it altogether. By the time the average couple tries to have kids, they are often beyond their late twenties and surprised to learn they're sliding past the peak of their fertile years.

      In Start Your Family, Steve and Candice Watters encourage couples to be intentional about their timeline in the early years of marriage and to trust God to help them boldly launch their families. Responding to the most common doubts and hurdles, they offer biblical inspiration for the questions, "Why have kids?," "When is the best time to start?" and "How can we fit kids into our lives?"
