What beautiful baby girls.

I am a first time reader. We live in Redmond, WA. I just want you to know that you and the whole family are in our prayers.

To God be the Glory.

Jason, Vanessa, and girls: We love you so much. Our prayers are with you. As has been said, Melody and Madison are now more alive than we all are. Praise God alone!

We will not be able to be with you and our church family on Monday as we will be traveling home from Mexico that day but all our love and prayers are with you. Though we've only known you a few months, we are family in Christ and nothing will ever take that bond away.

Dennis & Teri

Vanessa, this is Paige Stewart from the Families of Conjoined Twins website. I left a small comment this morning in response to the email you sent, but I really didn't have any other right words at the time. I've read your blog over and over today, and I'm so proud of your family and for the faith you have in our Heavenly Father. The prayer of myself and my husband is that he carries you through the coming months the same way he's carried us after the deaths of our twins. I hope that in some providential way we can meet one day, but until then, know that you've become heroes to a lot of people -- us included. We love you.

Craig and Paige Stewart
Northport, AL

Hi guys. Margaret did a fantastic job capturing some very special moments. The video brought tears to my eyes, yet again. We will be coming up to be with you on Monday. Love you all.

I wish I could be there with you to celebrate the life of your beautiful daughters. I am in Nevada so that will not be possible. I will be praying continuously for you and your family.

Vanessa- I want to send some flowers to the church for their memorial but I know some people prefer a donation in lieu of flowers. Please let me know what you prefer.

Verna said...

My heart will be with you.

A blog friend asked me to pray for you and your girls. I came to your blog.

Let me just say, I have been blessed! Thank you for sharing your journey. Melody and Madison are beautiful and now they are whole again and in the arms of Jesus. Comforting, yes. Still sad, absolutely!

May you have the peace that only God can provide in a time like this.

praying for you,

I discovered your blog yesterday, and can't stop reading. Your strength is amazing, and your love for our Lord is so pure. I am inspired by you, and I have posted a link to your blog on mine. Thank you for sharing. My prayers are with you!

Wish we could be there with you two celebrate these two wonderful beautiful babies, but we are unable to. We also want to send something, as a previous comment asked what do you guys prefer? Let me know....We love you!

SWIRL said...

Thank you for sharing the story & life of your two sweet daughters. Your faith and strength is a testimony to all that love knows no bounds.

I wanted to do something for you- I hope you don't mind. I asked that Melody and Madisons names be written in sand. You can see the photo at

Wishing you gentle days.

Jason and Vanessa said...

For those who have asked how to help, we have setup a way for you to donate if you wish:

Thank you so much for asking. We will probably only keep up the donations link for a week or so.

Soli Deo Gloria!

I've followed the story of your babies from the time you put them on the blog.

Sharing the joy and the life is one thing, but sharing the passing is something entirely different. The strength you show in your sorrow is something for everyone to aspire to. It has to be the hardest thing to be able to open your lives to everyone, but to continue to share, when the last week has to be the hardest you have gone through, is the most amazing thing in the world.

To be able to share this time with you, to see the love you have for each other, and for your daughters, all of them, touches me and I will remember always.

I am so sorry we will not be able to make it today.... my grandpa is not doing well and I will be in and out of the office today to be with him and my family.
I love you guys and my heart is with the girls on this day as we all celebrate their life! You all are an inspiration for our own faith!
We love you!
Bonnie, Jeff, Gunner,
& Uncle Edwin and Aunt Jane

My thoughts are prayers are with your family today. May God see you through these difficult days but also praise God for the precious minutes you had with them here on earth. Your pictures are absolutely priceless!

I lost a grandson 3 years ago at 13 days of age weighing in at less than 2 pounds. These tiny little babies truly change our lives forever!

Amanda said...

They look like beautiful, tiny, hugging angels. And after watching the video slideshow below I am truly speechless.

But I wanted to let you know that though I don't know you personally, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jason and Vanessa, you do not know me, but I want you to know that I have been following your blog for about a month along with a few others I know.

I am heartbroken for your loss. I want you to know that you two are so very inspiring to so many people out there. The lives you and your baby girls have touched is truly incredible.

Thank you for sharing your journey with everyone.
