Will we get 99 days?



I have watched this video a few times now and I just wonder if this will be anything like what it will be like with my little guy. I look foward to the day I can hold him in my arms and kiss his head, change his diaper and give him a bath. I can only look at this little boy and think that my son will look very similar. This baby has many characteristics of trisomy 18, much the same as our son. How many days will we get?

We can definitely have hope for you meeting your precious little man and having some sweet moments and time with him. I remember the first time I saw this video and I bawled and bawled. What a blessing/trial. This video has so much more meaning now. Hope you guys are doing well :)

I watched this at work during some down time over a month ago, and then when I found out about your darling little boy, I told Jacob about it because I didn't know if it was my place to suggest this video b/c I didn't know if it would be a good thing or not to show you. But I'm glad you watched it. It's a sweet and darling movie and whether it's 99 days or not, your little boy will be with you and Ryan forever!

Interesting that you would post this because I was just thinking about this little family the other day and wondering if it would be similar for your little guy! We love you and Ryan so much, and it was great to spend the weekend with you!

Oh Ashley, this hits so close to home for me. although Logan didn't die from this disease, he had to have oxygen and was in and out of the hospital for a long good 4 months. i treasured each day i spent with him, cause I knew he wouldn't be here on earth for long. It's like the guy says in the video. We will see you again after this life. It's comforting to know this. I hope what I am saying helps you in this time. I have been through losing a child and yes it's so hard and difficult. You will be so blessed cause you gave this child a body. Thank you for sharing this video. i sure hope you don't get 99 days, but 100 days. You are amazing. I am so grateful I know you. You will get through this. Stay close to the lord and remember this earthly pain is so short compared to the long afterlife ahead of us. You are in my prayers. Love you

I have seen this before and think it is so amazing! You two are very special in Gods eyes to have him choose you to watch over one of his most special spirts. He chose well. Love you guys. We are continually praying for you.
