Quinn Ruthie, September 9, 2010

Quinn was born at 3:02 am after an easy delivery. She could not breathe on her own. Because of expert medical intervention, she was able to live for almost six hours. We held her alive for almost an hour. It was a precious time, and we were full of awe. She was beautiful, and she smelled so good.Her heart rate became slower and slower. She was peaceful for the entirety. We don't know exactly when she slipped away, but we suspect it was while I was holding her.

We loved you with all our hearts, Quinn!

What a beautiful little baby girl, those photos are precious and will always be special to have. You do not know me, my family lives in Costa Rica and we are blessed to work with your brother and Krista. I have been following your blog for over 6 months now. My heart is so heavy with grief for you. I am praying that you will feel the embrace of Jesus as you walk through this season of grief.

I found this blog several months ago while looking for interesting, improvised ideas, and I've enjoyed watching your projects take shape.

Your loss is unfathomable and while I'm merely a stranger who appreciates the creativity you share, I'll continue to lift your family up. I'm so very sorry.
