This is his story....

This is his story...

On August 6, 2010, at 18 weeks gestation, our baby boy was diagnosed with anencephaly. The doctors told us that our sweet baby did not have much of his brain or skull, and that there was no way he would survive. They say that 95% of pregnancies diagnosed with anencephaly are terminated. We knew that we must give our baby boy life.

After 42 weeks, Baby Timothy Frank was born on January 25, 2011 at 5:40 pm, truly "Tiny Tim" at 4lb 15 oz. He was a fighter - he needed to be born alive to share his liver cells to save other babies, and he did just that. He took one breath and left us only seconds later to be with the Lord. We miss him so much but are so proud of what his little life is accomplishing.

This website is to keep Timothy's memory alive and share bits of our journey with our precious little boy. Every life is precious and has purpose - Timothy was able to accomplish so much in his short little life and we are so honored to have been chosen to be his mommy and daddy. Our hope is that Timothy's story will encourage others to give their children a chance to live, to tell their own story, and fulfill their purpose.

To God be the Glory.

Nine Months and Counting

Just wanted to post a quick thought today - I miss little Timothy a lot lately - it's been nine months but that is still less than the time he spent with me every day!! 

Thank you to my true friends and family for upholding me, supporting me, and remembering his precious little life that changed our lives in a big way!!

Life's Just Not What it Used to Be...

The world has bustled on around me...sometimes I wonder if anyone remembers that Timothy was here...I wonder how the world could move on without him - a piece of me wishes I could go back to those first few weeks he was gone - as difficult as it was, he seemed to be on everyone's mind, rather than just my own.  I look back at that time now and realize what an emotional high I was eight months later, my mind suddenly seems foggy.  My concentration is lacking...multi-tasking has seemed to go out the window for me, the master once of doing it all.  I'm realizing now that I'm just not all there anymore.  I don't know if I ever will be.  And you know what....I'm okay with that.  I'm sure it's not exactly convenient for those around me...but I'm learning to live life again...with the new me....I would take the moments I had with Timothy over the old me any day.

I write this for the other mommies out there....I have a feeling I am not alone.
