Images of a 19 Weeks Gestation Baby

We lost Josiah at 19 weeks and Issac at 21 weeks. Our six other child losses were earlier in gestation, but were still very significant to our hearts and lives. There is not a day I do not think of them. 

If you want to see a baby in the same gestational range as our Josiah and Issac, you can read the story of Walter Joshua Fretz. His mother desires for the world to know that at 19 weeks, her son was fully formed. She has a disclaimer on her site about the pictures, but Walter is absolutely beautiful. 

Lexi, if you find your way here, thank you for sharing the story and pictures of your beautiful son. God is using him to impact lives. You took a difficult part of your life and offered it up as a sacrifice to the Lord, and He is using it. I am very sorry for your pain and know how the arms can ache. You will see Walter again. Not only that, but you will know him, love on him, and hold him again. I care and am praying for you and your family. While we both know very well that children are not interchangeable, I am praying the Lord will bless you with another child to hold and love soon.
