Jack's baptism

I know it's a little late, but I didn't have one good picture of Jack in his baptism outfit so I had to dress him up again just for pictures. I got together with my friend Dawn and her daughter Laci to get pictures of both Jack and Laci in their baptism outfits.

For those of you who do not know our story here is a VERY brief look into our lives. Brian and I have a very special bond with Dawn and her husband Jeff. In July of 2006 we both suffered the loss of a son, only 6 days apart! During the summer of 2007 we found ourselves pregnant again at the same time, but we both suffered a miscarriage within a week of each other. Later that year, on Christmas day we learned we were pregnant again and a week later on New Year's Day Jeff and Dawn discovered the same great news for themselves. We went on to have many ups and downs throughout our pregnancy this year, but we both delivered healthy babies in August - only 4 days apart! It was only appropriate that the two little miracles in our life be baptized into the family of God together!

Laci had the most beautiful dress! It was made from Dawn's wedding dress - the picture doesn't even do it justice!

Also, a very special thank you to our friend Megan who sang the most beautiful song for their baptism. You can listen to the song on you tube sung by the artist Mark Harris - the title is "Find your Wings"

And thank you to all our friends, family, and even strangers who prayed for Jack and Laci from the time we found out we were pregnant.

If you would like to hear the sermon from this day you can go to click on sermon audio and choose the sermon titled Pain. During the sermon there is a recorded testimony with the four of us describing the pain we went through and how we dealt with it and trusted God through our pain. Sorry, it's only an audio recording - I have a copy of the testimony on DVD, but can't figure out how to get it on my blog
