A Sad Day

Ethan Jeffrey came into this world around 11:15pm on September 7, 2008. He's with God now. I was 14 weeks pregnant and saw his heart beating just yesterday on the ER ultrasound.

I couldn't leave him nameless once I knew him to be a boy. Ethan means "Strong" to remind us to be strong when we have rough days like every day of the past week. Jeffrey means "God's peace" and will remind us that God will bring us peace in those times. I think it is a good name.
