Many of you, just recently congratulated my fiance and i on the new addition to our family.
Rueben Zephyr was born on July 2nd 2010
He fought very hard, and endured multiple surgeries and procedures at an extraordinary attempt to save his life.
God has another plan for Carl and I, one that now includes saying goodbye to our precious baby boy.
Rueben Zephyr went home to see Jesus today, He was one month and 4 days old. His life so short, but every moment a blessing.

I'm not sure if any of you have lost a baby, but Rueben was my first pregnancy that didn't result in a miscarriage, because of D..but he was born far too soon, and for that I do blame my unruly D...

It's just not fair sometimes.

So sorry for your lose but honey I have lost one right after he was born (and had 2 miscarrages) before I had my 2 girls. No matter what please don't blame your D or yourself. Hold thigh one day you will have a baby that will grow up and give you grandchildern. I did and she's a Type 1 like her mom.
