Jeremiah Parker Shelby

This is Beth and Aaron Shelby. I have been following their family journey. I have been checking their blog multiple times a day for the last few days as they were expecting their first baby and she was starting to labor. I have been praying for them as baby Jeremy was diagnosed with Trisomy 13. As you all know this is a topic close to my heart. Well, today baby Jeremy was born and went home to be with the Lord shortly after. Please uplift this family in your prayers. I first met Laura, Beth's sister through our blogs. You can check out her blog at GO MOM GO and leave her a message. I have lost a baby niece and know that she is going through a hard time as an Auntie and as sister to Beth right now. If you would like to leave a message for Beth and Aaron you can at SHELBY FAMILY JOURNEY.

If you would like more information on TEAM TRISOMY you can go to IRONMAN FOR KIDS for more info. I will be raising awareness for Trisomy kids, their families, and all Trisomy angels through all my athletic events. My next race will be in remembrance of Jeremiah Parker Shelby.

Below is Beth and Aaron's Blog entry from today:

Much love and healing prayers to this family. I know all too well what they are facing right now, as I too lost my sweet Nimkee to Trisomy 13.

Thanks for all you are doing in the name of Trisomy, and babies like ours.

Love, Peace, & Nimkee blessings,
Melissa--Nimkee's proud mum xxoo
