McKinleys Friends

After receiving the devastating news that McKinley had Trisomy 13, a diagnosis considered "incompatible with life," I desperately starting searching the Internet for people in the same situation knowing that I couldn't be the only one.  I had difficulty at first, then a friend connected me to the blog of a family with the same diagnosis.  This is how I came in contact with all the amazing women and families I have come to know that have been affected (or are being affected) by Trisomy 13.  Now that McKinley is in heaven, this group of women, some I know in person and some I haven't met, have played a crucial role in my healing process. 

I saw this done on another blog (Thanks Holly!) and thought it was a wonderful idea.  I would like to start a list of babies that have gone to heaven, to hopefully connect other moms/families if they happen to stumble across my blog.

If you have a precious baby in heaven, due to miscarriage, stillbirth, or infant loss and would like to be added to this list, please leave a comment on this post (if you don't have a google account, it will give you an option to leave the information anonymously as well) with the following:

-Your name
-Baby's Name (if given one)
-Birthday, Born into Heaven Date, and/or Angel Dates
-Diagnosis/Reason they left us (if you received one)
-Blog Link (if you have one, so that others can find your blog)

**Even if you do not currently have a blog, still send me the other information so we can recognize your sweet baby and have others pray for you.  If you decide to start a blog at a later time, just send me your updated information and I will be glad to add it**

Would everyone please join me and pray for these families?
