Our Precious Henry Blaise

(Molly)

Until now, we have been unable to find the courage to share a photograph of our precious son. In all honesty it has been very difficult for us to view the pictures taken on the day Henry was born because it has only served to increase our pain. Slowly, we have been able to look at the photographs with our hearts a little less heavy; able to admire his beauty rather than re-live in our minds the events as they unfolded that day.

Henry was an absolutely gorgeous baby, just like his big brothers and sisters. I think perhaps I have underestimated the desire of those who know us to also admire his features with a photograph. His plump cheeks, his button nose, his tiny fingers, and his delicate, kissable lips remind us how carefully God formed our child in his mother's womb.

We thank you for your prayers and we ask that your prayers for our family would continue. We pray, despite our deep sorrow, that Henry's life purpose will be fulfilled and we continue to surrender ourselves to God's Divine Providence.

It is an honor to share with you a photograph of our son and our brother, Henry Blaise.

Molly - He is so sweet! And he looks so peaceful! I pray that you have moments when you can rest in knowing he's complete and content with Jesus.

Your little Henry Blaise is absolutely beautiful. I came upon your blog through Faith and Family, and wanted to let you know that you will be in my prayers this evening. My husband and I also lost a child at birth. Her name was Lucy Rose and she was born still in August of 2006. She continues to be a very important part of our family, and we hope to someday be where she already is, in the loving arms of Our Lord. God bless you and your beautiful family!
