Beau Ryan is one loved little boy.
When his mama and I met we were in middle school and to this day she is one of my very best friends. I am so proud of the person she has become, but as a mother she blows me away! The struggles her and Jamie have endured to have their beautiful family are beyond anything I can imagine. When their oldest, Avery was born she was extremely pre mature weighing in at a little over 1 pound. She is a walking miracle and has a personality out of this world. When I did her “newborn” photos she was a tiny 5 pound, four month old who was just released to go home.
A few years later they found out they were expecting a little boy, Jameson. They were thrilled with the news and expected everything to be great especially after passing the 27 week mark (when Avery was born). Sadly, he past away at 33 weeks. He was absolutely perfect, too perfect for this world. I can’t begin to understand the pain that goes along with the loss of a child and I hope I never do. Several things that happened after that showed the incredible strength Sarah and Jamie has, but to me, nothing proved how brave they were than trying again!
When Sarah told me she was pregnant with Haddie Jaymes I was beyond happy for her, but also so scared. They have had such a difficult road to parenthood that I couldn’t understand the risk they were taking again, but along came Haddie and she taught me a huge lesson in faith. When she was born, I shot the birth! It was a magical day! She was a perfect baby and I’ve never experienced so much joy in a delivery room! It was a different kind of joy than what I usually experience. Tears of happiness and relief filled the room. Even the nurses and the doctor were emotional. So here they are 6 years after they started this journey welcoming their little boy, Beau. A rainbow baby. When I had the opportunity to go home and meet him, it was a no brainer and I’m so grateful I was able to. He is the perfect addition to a very deserving family. A family that I’m so grateful and happy for! Congratulations 🎉
