It's been one year since my Jacob was born...

Please watch this video as a celebration of his life. It's really his life in pictures played to the songs he listened to every day in the NICU with us...with the first two minutes cut off to make it usable. It will take 10 minutes of your time, but it will help us to keep the memory of this amazing, strong, and inspirational child alive. He's the best thing that ever happened to his father and I and continues to be every day.

Make sure you watch until then end...he gets to be a big boy...and very cute :)

Amanda, what a beautiful video. And what a beautiful family.

How hard it is to see someone you love suffer. I'm glad you were able to sing Blessed Be Your Name when there was pain in the offering.

I totally can't see my screen anymore through the tears. What a beautiful video. I especially liked the video with your wedding rings on Jacob's toes. It's been a tough year for you. Sending hugs your way.

Your son is precious. What an amazing blessing. He did grow to be such a big boy!
