Brian's mom grew up in a small Wisconsin town called Randolph. Her 91 year old mother (aka Brian's grandma) still lives there. Since we were heading to Wisconsin anyways we decided to head out a day early so that Mason could finally meet his Gigi (as in great grandma). It ended up working out great because not only did we get to visit with his grandma but we also got to visit later that evening with a few of his uncles, aunts, and cousins. And his cousin Jim and his wife Amy (and their son Sy who happens to have been born the EXACT SAME day as Alayna) were gracious enough to host us for the night.

Love begins before a baby is born...and that love will live forever in our hearts. When you lose a baby, you lose not only the promise of a very special human being, but you lose many beautiful hopes and dreams as well.
Saying Good-Bye For Now...

We simply do not see the bigger picture, but we choose to believe that there is a bigger picture and that our loss is a part of some wonderful story authored by God himself.
