Meet Bennett, he is a very special little boy. And even though he isn’t born yet, he has touched many, many lives.
Bennett is the son of Jason and Kelly, and something tells me that he has blue eyes just like his parents.
You may recognize Kelly, she is a reporter with WTAE in Pittsburgh. I always thought that she was very pretty, but she is even more gorgeous in person. She was rocking the maternity jeans and sexy shoes.
I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed getting to know these two, they are just delightful to be around. And look at how great Kelly looks!
If you are familiar with their story, then you may know where this post is headed. Bennett was diagnosed with holoprosencephaly early in Kelly’s pregnancy and may not live long after birth. Please click here to read the interview they did with the Pittsburgh Post Gazette. These two are amazing, I am thankful that I was able to come into their lives.
Kelly will be having a c-section next week, and although they remain hopeful through faith in God, they will not know whether Bennett will be able to breathe on his own until he is delivered. I will be present at the hospital as I volunteer with an organization called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep. I encourage you to read through the information on their website, it is a wonderful group.
This is the majestic view from Kelly and Jason’s front yard, and given the frame of mind we were in, it made me feel close to God. Hopeful. Prayerful.
I’d like to close this post on a more upbeat note and introduce you to the family pets (one elusive dog is missing). The reason is because even though this is an extremely difficult time for Kelly and Jason, they remain positive and upbeat.Â I am truly inspired by their strength.
This is Nina and she spent most of her time taking it easy.
Oh my gosh, look at Lilly. How could you not love this big, ball of fur?
Chuck and I had plenty of fun… until I accidentally threw his toy where he couldn’t reach it. Then he gave me this really sad look… as if to say… why, Heather, why.
Please keep Jason, Kelly and Bennett in your prayers.
