Dylan was born into a family with two older brothers. He is the third and he is strong and beautiful and undoubtedly loved. Only one of those brothers was there to greet him in person on his birthday, but his older brother, Conner was definitely there. Conner passed away unexpectedly at just over a year old. It is every mother’s nightmare, but for this family it is a part of their story. One could expect walking into a home who has lost a child to have overwhelming sadness, but that is certainly not the case. Instead it is packed more snuggles, more gratitude and more love. From my time with this sweet family it is so abundantly clear he has two big brothers looking out for them and that his presence brings something so special into this family. Welcome to the world Dylan: you are already so welcomed and loved.
