Relief

We just finished moving out of the house we've called home for the past 2 years.  We made some good memories in that house but its time for a new chapter.  Because of mine and Patrick's choice for me to stay at home, we are having to make some changes.  So, for now, we will be living with my wonderful in-laws!! There have been so many changes in our lives for the past year, but I believe this one will be for the best.

  2. Hi, dear Heather, I wanted to tell you about the unique little boy who`s story is the same as your little son Grayson James. The only difference is he lives in spite of doctors' diagnoses, and desperately continues to fight for his precious life. He is only 8 months, during all this time his foster mom has been looking for a doctor who would be able to help the kid. In our country, they were denied ... I ask you for help to spread the information about the little kid Tolik Borowskiy.
    Unfortunately, you can find all the information about the kid in social network VKontakte, only in Russian - http://vk.com/club39665905
    But if you want to do something to help this baby, I'll try to translate as accurately as possible for you all the information
    Thank you very much in advance, Tatiana

  4. My son was born with a birth defect. He was missing all but and under developed pinky and thumb on one hand. I didn't know till the doctor was cutting the cord. Although it isn't life threatening it was still devastating. As a mother I do not find your photos offensive. There is nothing more beautiful than a newborn child.

  5. Hi I am so sorry you had to go through this. My fiance told me yesterday that his niece who is also having her third child was told her son has this same birth defect. Their family is devastated. Im researching it online to collect information for the family. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

  7. Thank you for sharing photos of your son. Thank you for giving him a chance to live. I see Jesus all over Grayson and all over your family. Your reward will be great in heaven because you were not ashamed of your son, nor are you ashamed of the Son.

  8. Hello precious family! Since I saw one of your photos when you are in the hospital with your beautiful baby, I knew you are a truly christian family and the light of God is over you. It touched deeply my heart.

    "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him."
    1 John 4:7-9

    A hug from Guatemala!

  9. Dios los bendiga y les brinde toda la felicidad, el amor de un hogar cálido y sobre todo de salud. Verdaderamente tienen una fortaleza inmensa y son dignos de respeto. Demostraron tantas cosas y valores humanos hermosos. Me entristeció ver el vídeo sólo que a la misma vez en lo personal aprendí un poco más de lo divino que es Dios y como a través de su bella y respetada historia nos enseña a valorar cada segundo de nuestras vidas y la verdadera fortaleza. Desde Puerto Rico un abrazo lleno de amor , bienestar y muchos deseos de salud y amor para ustedes. Verdaderos padres y con mucha honra los felicito. Damarilis

  16. Dear Heather,
    I've been reading what you have written about your sweet Grayson James and watching the movies. I was crying of sorrow but also because I was so moved by your story - all the more I have a little son who is your angel's peer - and enchanted by the beauty of your family. I was watching Grayson's cutest mouth, nose, ears, all tiny figure and tears streamed down my face. I am returning again and again to his picture with you titled "In mommy's arms - my little bundle of joy". It is poetry, it is inexpressibly, unutterably, unspeakably delightful.
    Every one of you has very handsome features - but the splendor of your love for Grayson and each other is so alluring, irresistible that I cannot stop looking at you. One could say - parental love and care seem so natural. And yet, yours is truly exquisite, extraordinary, glamorous.
    I am sure Grayson could feel it with a kind of sixth sense or some other way. As a blind person's hearing and sense of touch is unusually, highly responsive, Grayson as physically disabled must have been exceptionally gifted in his spirit and soul and must have had ways of recognition which we know nothing about.
    For a week, since I saw you, I think about you, I dream about Grayson. If I only can I will freely take some of your yearning and pain. And I do hope and pray that you will maintain your faith and hope.

  18. Hello I too found out about Grayson from fb someone is posting pics of your beautiful moment together for something horrible. There is a huge outrage on fb right now. I felt I needed to let you know . Grayson's a beautiful baby. I looked at you guys one time and knew GOD was in your life. You have a light around you. I truly admire you

  19. Dear Heather,
    I have too found your story most compelling. Reading your words brought tears to my eyes. I have a two children. A three year old girl named Nicole, and a 3 month old baby boy named Gabriel. I have never found myself consumed with others stories until I found yours. I hate to say he way I found it was on Facebook. A viral post is going around still that your son was in a car wreck. My heart breaks that it has gone viral like this. The page fumble quotes I feel posted for selfish causes. But the reason it breaks my heart is because your story is most compelling. Beautiful, and heart filled. Touching the world with your sons image and what he stood for. I have been fighting to get Facebook to take this post down. But like many others, the attempt is futile. Your story is strong and truly amazing. I feel strongly for it to remain true for your story is worth the tale for the world to see. The beauty of it is most poetic. I do hope your life is getting a little easier as time has gone by. May God always be with you. Through your strengths, weaknesses, sickness, and health. Through the good and bad. Thick and thin. God bless your soul and your beautiful family.

    Sincerely,
    Jess Proctor

  20. I have a granddaughter who was born with an encephalocele and my daughter made the same decision as you when she found out about the birth defect in spite of the doctor's recommendation to terminate the pregnancy. Hope lived for 37 days and blessed the live of many during her short life. You may be interested to read my daughter's blog about Hope at: http://caeliocea.blogspot.com/search/label/hope

    God bless you for your faith, strength and willingness to share your story.

  21. Heather and James. I can't begin to express my sorrow and awe at your loss and your strength through this amazingly difficult time. It was so evident in your beautiful video that Grayson was loved a lifetime in such a short time. Seeing your interaction and Grandpa holding him showed the families love and is so inspiring. Although I won't ever meet you I pray for you this day to have God give you a sense of peace that Grayson is with his savior this day. God Bless you all.

  23. Heather, I know how you feel, my son died on September 15, 2012 and it was the hardest things I went through with my family and other children. I found him passed away in his crib at 6 months old in my apartment. I still live at the same place but it will hurt for a long while but you will remember everything about your child. I still get emotional when a holiday comes, his birthday, mothers day and also the day he died. But it will get easier and easier I promise you this. With your spouse and kids has support and family that will help the most and one most vital thing talk about your son with whom ever because that does help ease the pain as the day goes by. I hope my dilemma has helped a bit. and if you need email me at icecoldjade@gmail.com. I know the hardest thing in life is losing a child and your son Grayson was an angel just like my son was and he was beautiful in his special way.

  24. My daughter is carrying my first grandson, Everett, who is due June 7. Everett has a large encephalocele. Thank you for posting your photos. Grayson is perfect in the eyes of God! Everett is, and always will be, my special and unique grandson. Your story is so full of love. Thank you for sharing. Prayers for you all.

  26. I think God has allowed this to continue being shown to help others who have gone through it or are going through it. Our daughter gave birth on Oct. 3, 2013 to twin girls. Clara is healthy and beautiful. Willa lived 15 and half hours. Her brain had been completely pulled through a small hole in the skull. In the face she looked very much like your son. She was beautiful and all of us got to hold her and let her know how much she was loved. The pictures will be treasured for a lift time. Her heartbeat was recorded and is in a teddy bear for Clara. Your video is so touching, I sat here crying and feeling your love and your pain. God bless your family and know our hearts have touched through the love of Jesus!

  27. Hello one of the best parents in the world!
    I'm a Catholic from Poland, living currently in the UK. I just want you to know that I'm so grateful for your example of real parents' love. These days some Polish doctors signed a document stating they object being forced to perform abortion to unborn babies with birth defects (abortion is illigal in Poland except for a case of rape, mother's life in danger or birth defects including unfortunately Down Syndrome). One of the doctors, didn't agree to kill a baby like Greyson. Now he is persecuted by the media, people in general and the government officials. The doctors have the constitutional right to act according to their conscience but in practice is looks exactly like the situation above.

    I used your example to show people how loving parents may treat their baby in such a case. Greyson is a voice of many and you, my dear parents, you did an amazing thing - you helped his voice to be heard. Thank you, thank you. May God be with you always.
