Porter's Story

In October 2011, Seth and I learned that our unborn son, Porter has a condition called Trisomy 13 or Pateu's Syndrome which is not compatible with life. We chose to let God decide when Porter's life will end. These are the lessons we've learned from our Heavenly Father through the life of Porter Gray.

Celebrating the Life of Porter~First Birthday

Just over a year ago, Seth and I were anxiously awaiting the birth of our son Porter, who was diagnosed with a fatal genetic problem. Many of you were brave enough to come along side us during one of the worst times of our lives.

It’s almost been a year since Porter was born on March 2nd 2012. On this first birthday, we wanted to make it extra special by releasing Chinese lanterns.

Our family will have a small gathering just for those that were at the hospital with us that day, but if there are any of you that would like to help us remember Porter by releasing a lantern with your own family we would love for you to join us in spirit.
We told our son, Campbell, that it’s like we’re sending kisses of light to heaven to show Porter how much we love him and miss him. We’d love for you to send a kiss too.

You can get a lantern from either myself (call or text), or if you are from our Briarlake Church family someone will have them for you this Sunday, and our new Stone Point Church family can get one at the Welcome Desk this Sunday. There is a small note on each one that tells you the day and the time we will let them go.

I will not be able to ship them to out of town friends because I am unable to find a large enough box to fit the size! You can order them from the link below...search Chinese floating lanterns.

Thank you all and thank you for loving on us!

Jeannie, Seth, and Cam Peabody
