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.

Happy Heavenly 2nd Birthday Tiny Tim!

I can't believe it has been two years already - two years since Timothy has been dancing with in the river...laughing with his Grandpa. 

Gauging by his two his cousins who were born right around the same time, he would be starting to talk...starting to show his own little personality...starting to have his own little attitude.  He would be obsessed with babies, demanding his own way, insisting on multiple cookies, and wanting to be "in" on everything big sister Evie did.

Gauging by how Evie is with her little brother Frankie...she would be taking care of him, they would be inseparable, they would play together and make each other laugh, and look for each other first thing in the morning.  If we made a trip without him...she would be asking where he is.
Oh the love she would have for you Baby Timothy. 

We did not forget you today Timothy.  We released balloons up to heaven with notes of love on them for you, did you receive them?  We baked cupcakes, we talked about you, Evie pretended that Frankie was you, and she was your mommy.  And we received messages all day long from so many people who missed you and thought of you today.

Last year your Uncle "Teve" named a star after you - you are my star.  Your life shines so brightly for all to see.   I promise to continue to tell your big sister and little brother about you, I promise to always share your story...and I promise to never stop celebrating you.  

Happy Birthday to my precious little one.


  1. I love telling your cousins all about you Timothy! I love that Noelle smiles with excitment when we talk about you living in heaven. She eagerly longs for the day to meet you and asks me all about you and what you do up there. When did I lose that wonder and longing to be in heaven like a child has? Thank you to you for reviving that in me. For reminding me everyday of where my real home is and what I should be longing for every day. Eternity in paradise with our Father! Happy Heavenly 2nd Birthday Timothy! Love, Aunt Toey

  2. What a beautiful day your birthday was on Friday. I can only imagine your celebration in heaven. Here on earth so many hearts were smiling thinking of you. The love people have for you is clearly expressed as each of us find our way to show you remain forever in our lives. You truly are BEAUTIFUL in so many ways!
    Xoxoxox I love you Tiny Tim
    Love, Aunt Nattie

  3. I saw your face tonight Timothy :) Your little brother Franklin was smiling and I just saw you too. You are always here with us. Love you forever and always until we meet again!
    Love, Aunt Toey
