It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the loss of our newborn baby son, Otis Allen. There is a link in the Sept DDC with more information, and the link below is a website that our friends have set up for us, along with photos of our time with Otis.

Thank you to everyone on this board for your support and love through the last 9 months. May you all appreciate every second you have with the miracles you have brought into this world.

Sarah and Erik, my heart just breaks for you. My heartfelt prayers and thoughts for you - that you might heal, remember with all of your heart, and find solace in your time of grief. I cannot imagine the loss you are feeling.

Otis is beautiful (look at all of that beautiful hair and those chubby cheeks!) - perfect in every way, you are wonderful parents who made hard choices. Again, my prayers and thoughts are with you so much!

I followed your story on the Sept DDC and am heartbroken for you. You got some amazing photos and you will cherish those forever. Our boys are playing together in heaven until we get the chance to hold them again. Please PM me if you need anything.

I am so sorry to hear of your tragic loss. The pictures were just beyond beautiful. My coworker and I were tearing up looking at them. He is truly special. I hope you can find strength and healing. I cannot even imagine what you are going thru and cannot understand why anyone has to go thru what you are going thru.
