In all seriousness.

I do not want to offend or upset anyone, so please read this before you scroll down.

Below is a picture of my sweet nephews.
I have friends who have lost babies of their own and I do not want this to be hurtful to anyone.

I also know that some people are very sensitive to things of this nature.

I took this picture just minutes after they were born.
The doctor was still taking care of my sister and I walked over to see the babies.
They were already snuggled together, so sweet and peaceful.
I touched each one of them and told them how much they are loved and then I prayed.
It was important for me to take pictures.
I knew that a picture would be the most precious memory to us all.

I decided that I wanted to do something special for my sister, so I contacted Kim and asked her to give me some advice on what to do to make this picture special for my sister.

I had this picture put on canvas and framed.

I thought it turned out so beautifully.

I talked to my sister and we both agreed that we wanted to honor Ethan and Evan.
The funeral was private, but our love for them is not.
Everyone deserves to see the perfect beauty God created.

It was just two short weeks ago that part of our family was lost.

We felt like today would be a good day to introduce you to the angels that God called home.

Evan Ryan and Ethan Reed

When I received the picture, I opened it so that I could take a picture to keep, but didn't completely unwrap it.
That was for my sister to do.
It was more beautiful than I had imagined it would be.
