Baby Mac


I came upon this blog tonight and it really touched me. Do not look at it unless you are prepared to shed tears. It is a beautiful memoir to a little stillborn baby whose name was Mac. There are photos of his sweet little body and of the funeral and my heart just goes out to his parents. I do not know how people survive without the belief that families are eternal. Luckily this family shares this knowledge and I am grateful they have shared their experience. Here is the link:

I hope you are all as touched as I was. I haven't been able to put Summer down since I saw it.

I looked at that blog last week. So sad! It sure makes you grateful for your own kids who are alive and healthy.
What an inspiration to all of us to be more loving parents & to appreciate the little things.

I can't believe you remember the tall guy and his obsession with midgets. I forgot that one.

Baby Mac what an inspiration to us all to be loving and enjoy what time we do have here on earth together.

I am dripping like a faucet. Stories like this make me think of one word: THANKFUL!
Thanks for sharing their story - I needed a reminder today of how precious my kids are and how lucky I am to be their mother - even when Livi is breaking/getting into/spilling everything in the house and Keaton is working on his 5th messy diaper in 5 minutes. :) I do love my kids! Oh - and what's with the 50 cent song with the F Bomb? LEESA!!
