March For Babies

So Rob and I are going to walk in the March For Babies walk in Sacramento this April, in memory of our daughters. The March of Dimes mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. If you'd like to support this cause, please consider sponsoring us by making a donation.

I think you can see that by all the support you guys are getting that you are in many peoples thoughts daily. There is not a moment that goes by that our hearts are not with you and in our prayers. We will all be there with you in spirit. If you need anything , you know all you need do is ask.
Love, Cheryl and Jack

You may want to do some research on the March of Dimes and their position on the life issues. They support things like fetal experimentation and are not considered pro-life from a Christian perspective.

You don't know me personally..but we have three things in common! We have three babies in heaven too. We never got a chance to hold them or even feel them! Not saying that is harder or easier...losing a baby at any stage in the pregnancy hurts on so many levels! All three happened in 2008 and we too are praying for a healthy baby to bring home in 2009, but trust God's perfect timing even though we don't understand or like it! I am praying for you guys and hang in there...sounds like you guys have some options and answers! More than we have to go with, but we still trust in the One and only God who has our lives in his hands. All things God makes is glorious, even us who don't feel like it when we go through times like this in our lives. May HE be glorified through you! God Bless you and thanks for sharing your story as hard as it may be to do! You will be glad that you have it all recorded. "There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears." All of our babies are there and someday we will be too!

What Rob and Jen are doing comes from their hearts and I am sure is not a part of some hidden political or moral agenda. They should be applauded for this very giving, and Im sure very difficult time they are going through. I love them both with all my heart and support them and stand by them. This is a positive step for them and hopefully for someone else that may not have to go through what they have.
God bless both of you

Thank you for that above comment. To the "anonymous" author whom that comment was meant for, please refrain from leaving judgemental and ignorant comments on here. THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL FORUM. I know Rob and Jen very well, and they do nothing that they haven't first researched quite thoroughly. But that being beside the point, those of us that come on here are here to love and support them during this very difficult time in their lives.
That being said, I know you both are smart enough to not have had that lame comment affect you. What you guys are doing is awesome. I pray it may be a special day for all 3 of you. Not only will all of our hearts be with you on that day, but I know the Lord will be walking right along side of you, as well as our dad, Jen's dad, and all 3 of your precious girls.

Guys, I just stumbled across your blog today. My heart is broken reading this. Sorry doesn't do it.

I am the father of two precious kids and over the past few days I have become increasingly grateful for the things that many people take for granted.

The strength to even share this comes only from the Lord and I am glad to have been able to read it. I can't even imagine having to hold a child as they take their last breath. Or maybe, I should say I can't imagine having the PRIVELEGE of holding a child as they take their last breath. What a painful blessing that must have been.

I rejoice with you guys that you got to meet them...even if it was only for a few hours.

Thank you for reminding me that I need to cherish every single moment that I get with my kids. If nothing else, know that you have blesses a father all the way over in Georgia and reminded him of the things that should never be taken for granted.

Hi Jenell,
I can't believe you have sufferred the loss of three babies. I found your blog while searching for information after losing my daughter on March 15th- she was only 23 weeks. I am amazed at your strength and have thought of you each day since I started reading your blog. I felt connected to you because I too lost my father in the same year I lost my little Ella. I just can't believe how unfair life is. I am so sorry. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I have decided to start my own blog. I have a lot to say and feel like it will be a positive outlet.
