Little Oliver

I am so sad to say that little Oliver was born into Heaven on Sunday. Lo siento. This is never easy to hear. His mother, Shannon, is an incredible woman. She emailed me (and a few other mommies) to tell us what had happened. She also shared with us that she had a "beautiful peace" about her during the delivery. Thank you for taking the time to pray for her and her family. I know it brought much comfort to her. Thank you for sending your prayers out for people you don't even know. It just means so much to us.


  1. I'm so sorry for Shannon's loss. Little Oliver is Trisomy 18 free up in Heaven with my little niece Brienna (I'm Laurie's sister) and I know they will be great friends and looking over all of us together. Knowing she is not alone and with a wonderful friend brings a little comfort. I'll be thinking and praying for Oliver, his mommy and her family.

  2. So sorry. Praying for all these angels and their sweet families.

  3. I'm Shannon's Mom. I'm a woman of faith, but could never have imagined the site of my beautiful Shannon, looking so radiant as I first saw her holiding dear Oliver. God's peace was nothing short of miraculous as so many prayed. Thank you for walking this journey with us, and making a difference in our lives. . . a gift from God.
