I started Tuesday posting an excerpt from JP’s blog ” Nothing changes your life like a life-changing moment. It may sound pretty obvious, but that statement doesn’t have real impact until a moment changes your life. One certainly changed ours.” — JP Davey
Tonight, Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013, that life changing moment also happened to me and our entire family. At 6:01 pm Jon-Daniel Davey was born in a specially appointed hospital room with specially trained medical staff who were prepared for every medical situation. My life-changing moment was having to hold my son as he held his son Jon-Daniel for the first and last time. To this point in my 60 years of life nothing has affected me so strongly.
A beautiful baby boy was born to JP and Jacky today and that beautiful baby boy died in his loving fathers arms shortly after birth due to natural complications. Many of you have read about Baby J in JP’s blog, JP will publish the rest of the story as soon as he and Jacky return home from the hospital.
I have always loved and respected my son, JP for who he is. Tonight that love and respect jumped right off the charts.
JP and Jacky, you are loved. There aren’t words in the English language I can use to describe how much I hurt for you now. Your strength and courage through this is far greater than I was able to model for you. You are taking me where I’ve never gone before. You are my heroes and my model. Your mom and I love you so much.
Nothing changes your life like a life-changing moment. It may sound pretty obvious, but that statement doesn’t have real impact until a moment actually changes your life. Today, one certainly changed mine. – Jon-Mark
