Maze was born and returned to heaven on September 13, 2015
My sweet niece Robyn into her pregnancy with this sweet little boy. However, he will not survive a life here on earth.
On August 14, 2015 Robyn posted this on facebook:
Jason and I are expecting baby #6. On June 17th we had our ultrasound and found out 2 things:
Our baby is a BOY but he also has a long list of complications.
8 weeks ago today we met with a specialist and they confirmed our biggest fear - our little guy will not be able to survive on his own.
We were told that because of his condition he could pass away anytime.
Right now I'm over 29 weeks and our little guy is still hanging on. We are completely heartbroken by htis tragic situation. It is often times more than I can handle but, we draw strength from our faith and from the many prayers being offered on our behalf. We appreciate all of your love and prayers.
Robyn's mom Cindy said: These pictures are absolutely beautiful. How blessed you are to have someone so in tune with heaven to capture such a sacred bond. I love you and pray for you every day.
"Heaven will never leave you unattended during a time when your own power isn't enough.
Angels will attend you, surround you, uplift and carry you.
You won't be the same when you look back ... you weren't meant to."
"There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief....
..... and unspeakable love."
"The bonds of families are not only for this life,
for we are made of the stuff of eternity.
He will be your guiding star,
your focus to make all choices by.
You and your family are in our prayers."
Family ... truly beautiful and captured so eloquently in this shot. Prayers for that unborn baby .. no matter what lies ahead, that baby has so much support even before it comes into this world as evidence in this picture.
Robyn and Jason, Halle, Jayden, Colt, Bristol and Kaylor .. words can't say the dept of my sorrow for your family on having to return your sweet angel, Maze back home to Heavenly Father until you can be reunited again. I understand that Maze lived for 10 minutes while Jason blessed him and gave him his name. What a blessing to have that time with him. I love all the pictures Vikki Marie Wiessner captured of this moment of your eternity and a way to always remember him. 4 lbs 2 oz. I'm also terribly sorry for the difficult labor and c-section you had to endure to bring him into the world. May your family be comforted and know that you are loved. Aunt Sondra
This picture of Jason holding Maze moved me like nothing else.
Colt and Maze. He is the big brother.
Our lives are the only
of what we believe
and in Whom we believe.
And the only real wealth, for any of us, lies in our faith.
...Gordon B Hinckley
He belongs with them.
Even though he will be working and living across the veil while they sojourn here on earth, we have the belief that families can be together forever.
The reunion will be nothing short of remarkable.
Love binds us forever....
...and a day.
