PAIL Feature Friday: Story of Jaxson
Jaxson Gerard Amabile was born sleeping at 20 weeks on May 22, 2019. He was my rainbow baby. Loved & fought for so incredibly much.
He was our third and last embryo after 2 years of an IVF journey. We never found a reason why his heart stopped beating. It took 56 hours to induce me and I would bear the pain 1000 more times if I had to just to be able to hold him again. I memorized his perfect little nose and mouth. I kissed his precious hands and feet. I remember every single detail of his 14 oz body.
We are so incredibly blessed to have friends & family who continually support us and most importantly acknowledge that even though he was only 20 weeks he was still our son.
The one thing that motivates me to keep going is that I want to live a life of meaning and purpose to honor his memory. Someday we will meet again but until then I want my guardian angel to be proud I’m his mama.
