Today

Hi friends, I am back. Thank you so much for of your extended support and love. We have felt your hands on our shoulders guiding us. I just wanted to post a few pictures of Jonathan because I know everyone is awaiting his photos so much. I don't know that I will post many more just because I kind of want to be selfish with him and keep him all to myself. I may change my mind and surprise us all.

Anyway, here is our beautiful angel baby Jonathan Mitchell. He weighed 1 lb 3 oz and was 12 long. He was perfect in every way. He had Zack's feet, which was amazing to us that those features are defined so early in utero. Without further ado, Jonathan Mitchell:


I will post a longer more informative post tomorrow. For now- Goodnight.

That is so beautiful guys. I am so glad you got to spend some time with him. What a beautiful boy! You have such strength to endure such a long labor. I am so proud to have friends like you. Praise God that you were able to stay alert and have the time you did.

Oh Jaimey, he is beautiful!!

I got this beautiful picture last night of this gorgeous baby in Jesus' arms and the Lord was looking down at him with a HUGE smile just as a Father would look down on his newborn baby!!

Jonathan is so precious and will be remembered for his amazing life and how many people his short life touched. I know that I have been forever touched. I love you dearly!!

How blessed your family truly is. Jonathan will be anxiously waiting to be held by you all, as I can imagine so will you! What a beautiful soul you hold in that picture and how generous for your family to share him! I have been burning a candle in his memory since yesterday and it is still lit, I would so much love to send it to you!

What a precious and glorious baby you have both brought into the world.

My heart aches for your loss but I also rejoice that you will be together again in a far more beautiful place!

Please contact me if you would like a DVD slideshow created in memory of Jonathan. I would be honored to create this for your family!

Oh my god, he is so perfect and beautiful, with a beautiful mama. I love the picture of the two of you. Certainly don't blame you for wanting to keep him all to yourself.

I can't tell you how inspiring I have found you and and Zack. You have been amazing through all of this. Jonathan was so lucky to have had you as his parents.

Thank you so much for sharing these and your experiences with us.

"The Lord bless you and keep you--the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift up His countenance (His smile) upon you, and give you peace."

We are humbled to know such strong and loving parents. Thank you for sharing your life and love with us.

I can't believe how long your labor was! And so wonderful that you got to visit with him for almost 3 hours! I am amazed and awed that you went through the whole labor process, going through all that pain and everything knowing that he wasn't going to be staying with you guys. I don't know if I could have done the same. You are so incredibly strong. Thank you for sharing your experience of such a personal and emotional thing with the rest of us. We are blessed to be a part of it.

Marlyn said...

So beautiful! Greggie is on my lap and she loves him! She says, "Mama, is that baby taking a nap? I kiss him night night." So, tonight he has her sweet kiss to help comfort him in his journeys.

I admire you so much. You are strong and beautiful.

Your family is in my prayers.

Jonathan~
You have touched so many people near and far and brought so many families closer to each other. You are an inspiration to us all, if only we all could be as brave and strong as you! Not only were your parents lucky to have you but you were lucky to have such a wonderful and caring Daddy, Mommy and brother! I never knew you in person but I have meet you in sprit and you are beautiful! Please don't forget to look in on your Mommy, Daddy and big bro G from time to time.
