Oh Jen, a beautiful post about a beautiful baby boy. He knew you and Mike loved him. I'm so sorry (and I'm sorry if that's not the right thing to say-- no words can convey the heartache or make this situation easier). Love you, sweet mommy Jen. Happy birthday, Daniel. You are missed.

What a lovely tribute to your little boy. He was so beautiful is so missed.


Thank you for writing this. I know it must have been difficult, but I am sitting here 15 weeks pregnant with my first child and I will carry your story with me as a constant reminder to not take anything lightly or for granted. I'm truly sorry for this heartbreaking loss and am in complete awe of your strength.


Oh Jen, I'm so so sorry.

I can't read this. I tried, because I want to support you, and right now it's hard for me to picture anything more heartbreaking. I can't picture anything more heartbreaking.

I think I'm going to go spend some time looking at your picture of your beautiful baby girl's pretty eyes. She looks so much like you.


Jen, your Daniel undoubtedly took great comfort from your strength and love during the time you had together. Thank you for sharing his story (and yours).


I like that you laughed and told jokes for him. That makes sense to me.

I'm sorry you lost Daniel so early.

This was brave and beautiful. Thanks for sharing Daniel's story with us. I am so, so sorry that he couldn't be here longer.


Jen, this is so beautiful. Happy Birthday, sweet boy.


Jen, there is so much of this story that I just did not know. Thank you so much for sharing it. I can't imagine the strength it took to write this. It's hard to know what to say, so I'll just say that we love you and are thinking of you. Happy Birthday Daniel.


Thank you for sharing this tribute to your son. It was so brave of you, and a truly loving thing you have done for him. Good thoughts to all of you.


I don't know what to say other than "thank you", for your words, for reading this (or trying to)...

It means so much.


He was so beautiful, Jen. I wish you'd gotten a whole lifetime with him. Hugs.


To Jen and everyone who has read this piece or is simply aware to our son, I just wanted to thank you. For those who do not know me, I am Jen's husband Mike.

Everyday regardless of where I am or what I'm doing, I think of Daniel. I have been told by other fathers that is not uncommon.

I am grateful that Jen has been able to write this, proving again that she is much stronger than me.


I can't imagine how impossible this was for you to write and how difficult is still must be to not have Daniel in your lives every day.

I am so thrilled for you that you have a beautiful daughter. She truly is just so beautiful.
