Into the Arms of the Lord

Sweet Family and Friends,

I write this with a completely empty and broken heart. On Monday April 24th for a routine doctors appointment, two days before our scheduled inducement date, it was determined that our sweet baby had quietly passed in my womb and went straight in the arms of Jesus, as they could not find his heartbeat. Just like you we were/ are completely stunned, shocked and devastated beyond words since there was never an indication of anything wrong and he was moving around normally the night before. Finding the words have been so difficult for Alex Juchniewicz and I.

We were immediately admitted at Memorial Herman in Katy to begin the painful process of labor. We have been embraced by Christ’s love with multiple visits and prayers from our Pastor and friends during this time and have been beyond blessed to have the most amazing and encouraging nurses by our side who have cried and prayed with us.

On April 25, at 6:49pm Colton Thomas Juchniewicz entered this world quietly as he was already in the arms of our Lord in heaven. He was and is the most beautiful baby I’ve ever seen. Perfect in absolutely every way. He was 7lbs 8oz and tall like his daddy at 20 inches tall. After he was born we were able to see there was a large knot in his cord that had formed sometime in the womb and was probably very loose until the very last part of my pregnancy where space in the womb became limited and the knot grew tighter which slowly cut him off from me. We are thankful that the cause of his death was completely clear so we never have to doubt why or how or if there was something we could have done differently.

We have had some very sweet time with Colton which has helped with the healing process for both Alex and I but also for our family.

Please keep us in your prayers as we are completely broken and sad. Despite our circumstances, we continue to trust and believe in the goodness and faithfulness of God. We have so much hope in Christ and know that there was a reason for this and that it was always apart of his plan for him go straight to heaven. With that said it is still so hard for us to completely understand and we know we have a hard road as we beginning the healing process. Please know if we weren’t able to reach out to you directly that we love you and wish we could have. If we don’t respond to comments or texts right away please know they mean so much to us but will take some time to have strength to reply back to everyone.

I never knew such little feet would forever impact our life and leave foot prints on our hearts forever.

“The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away, blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job 1:21.

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your little Colton. Prayers are being said as are tears being shed as I write. Prayers for continued strength and the love you two have for each other.
