A sad day.

Baby Harrison Samuel Maw was still born today to Trent and April Maw. He was needed up in Heaven with our Heavenly Father for something really special. It is a very sad day for all of us. April is doing okay, although she lost a lot of blood over the past couple of days, but she has been given many blood transfusions to bring her blood count back up. She will be at the hospital for at least another day then she will be allowed to come home. Trent is such a great father and husband, he is hanging in there and holding his family together. Harrison is so cute he was absolutely perfect weighing just over 13oz and measuring 10in. He had ten fingers, ten toes, even tiny little fingernails. They will be having a graveside service later this week when April is doing a bit better. I will keep you all updated as things progress. Please keep them in your prayers April is still trying to recover and they have a lot of emotional recovery to go through. Instead of flowers, please donate money if at all possible. Thank you all for your love and prayers.

Amy I am so sad for April, Trent and your whole family. I can't even begin to imagine the emotions you are all going through. Tell April I am so sorry she has had to go through all of this. His spirit must have been so sweet. I hope you can all find peace in knowing he is with his heavenly father again.

Amy, Tell them we love them. Really words can't adequately express emotions at this time. I have wept for them and for all your family. I trust that our Heavenly Father knows and will give them the strength and comfort they desperately need and deserve. He was a VERY SPECIAL BOY. May you all feel an added measure of our Savior's love. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I'm sorry. -Erin

I can't even imagine the loss that everyone is feeling right now. Is she okay with having visitors or would she rather just be alone/with family right now? We (me, Debbie, and Sueann) would love to visit to help and support her in any way, but we certainly don't want to if the time isn't right. Let us know either way, and please also let her know that we are thinking about her and her family. May the Spirit comfort all of you at this time.
