Today was supposed to be a momentous day in my life. I was supposed to have become a father today. Instead my wife and I are mourning the loss of our son a few months ago due to a blood clot at 24 weeks of pregnancy. Lukas never had a chance to meet our families or our wonderful friends that have continued to support us during this tough time. We only got to hold him for a short while, we only got to see his personality through a few ultrasound images, we never had the chance to make memories with our son.
As we deal with the situation as best we can, I want to thank all of our friends and family that have continued to think of us and keep us in your prayers. It means a great deal to us that we have such a great group around us to show us support and hope. This would be worlds more difficult if we didn’t have you all.
December 3 will forever hold a place in our hearts as a day that should have been. If you have children in your life please do not take them for granted. They truly are a miracle and they are a blessing to you. Continue to make memories and help them fulfill their dreams.
The only memories we have with our son are dreams that will never have a chance to come true. Those dreams will always be in our hearts and Lukas will never be forgotten.
