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!!


  1. Holly and Mike,
    You are always in our thoughts and prayers. No one could ever forget your little Timothy. He is forever in our hearts...a little hero to many. Every time "his song" comes on the radio, I can't help but get emotional and think of your family's journey through this difficult time. He has left his tiny footprints engrained in many hearts. Love to you both!
    Jen and Adam

  2. It's funny that Jen F. mentioned about little Timothy's song above.......the same thing happens to me EVERY time I hear "his song". Happy 9 months to our dear sweet Timothy.

  3. Hi Holly,
    On January 3rd my son Charles,would have been 25 years old. He lived 1 hour and 25 minutes. Since that time when we vacation I buy a magnet with his name on it to place on my fridge. I have had two children since then we think of Charles often during this holiday season. Our children will forever be in our hearts. Others may forget, but we will never forget.
