In Memorial: Ethan Jeffrey

Written by Scott

Topics: Archives, Uncategorized

A little before midnight tonight, I held my son, Ethan Jeffrey, for the first time. The miscarriage came at 14 weeks.

I am torn as to whether to post pictures of his wonderfully formed body, but he was indeed a beautiful baby boy.

We chose the name Ethan Jeffrey for its meaning: Ethan, for Strong; Jeffrey, for God’s peace. He will be a reminder for us that even in difficult times like this, in God we can find strength and peace.

    I also wanted to say that if you and JoAnn are okay w/ posting his picture I think it would be a good thing for those who doubt that at 14 weeks a baby is indeed a person. But only if in doing so you will not extend your heartbreak.
