Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.  Bill and Jill's story begins 4 years ago, after getting married when we decided to start our family.  After many failed IVF attempts,  we thought all our dreams had finally came true.  Jill was pregnant with twins!  Expected due date sometime in February.  All that changed on October 29th.  Jill wasn't feeling quite right and decided to get checked out.  She was checked and told her back pain she was experiencing was normal.  However, it continued throughout the night and Pre-Term Labor started.  Bill and Jill's twins were born at 23 weeks and 5 days on October 30th, 2018.  Will, their baby boy, was first at 1:29am, weighing in at 1 lb 9oz.  Sofia, their baby girl, was born at 1:36am, weighing 1lb.  Both babies were critical and rushed to the NICU.  Baby Sofia fought hard, but after about 18 hours, she passed away peacefully, in mom's arms.  Will was critical, but stable in the NICU.  Will fought for 11 days, but his little lungs just weren't ready.  He passed away in Jill's arms on November 10th, 2018.  Bill and Jill want to thank everyone for their continued prayers and good thoughts.
