We love reading your messages and uplifting comments.
Thank you all for your love and support.

To our precious baby Cullen, It has been a year now since you came into our lives. We miss you and think about you every day. We include you in our prayers and ask that God keep you close in heaven. On October 30th, your famiy was all together with your Mommy and Daddy, aunts and uncles and cousins and Mim and Pappy to celebrate your heavenly birthday. Cullen, we miss you very much but are comforted knowing that you are in the loving arms of our Lord and Savior.

I was checking my anencephaly blog and saw that someone came to read from your page. Wanted to say thanks for adding our page to your links! Hope you are doing well.

Thank you for your testimony to God's incredible faithfullness and for choosing LIFE for Cullen. I wish I had been following your journey for the past 5 months, but only came across it today....On June 5th of this year we celebrated our daughter Danielle's 16th birthday with Jesus! We too chose life for her with the diagnosis of anancephaly. Each day with her was precious as you have journaled here of your own time with Cullen, and although I would give anything to have her here on earth, I wouldn't trade the was a sweet time of trusting in the Lord and allowing others to be a part of praying and seeing the blessing of obedience and trust in Him. Was it without heartache, no....but God is Good and His Mercies endure forever! Love and prayers to you and your family and friends. Thanks for sharing your story!

Happy Birthday Cullen!! I am loving all of your precious photos, love the smiles on your family members faces. So many blessings to you and your family. Your journey has been such an inspiration, that even in the toughest situations if we truly Trust in the Lord, He will help and guide us through to the end.
Once again Happy Birthday and congratulations Joe and Holly.

I have had an absolute blast getting to know you over the past few months! It's been awesome to play with you, talk to you, feel you kick (or be shy, depending on your mood) You should see how your mom has positively glowed since the moment you came into her life. You've made her happier than I can possibly explain. I don't get to see your daddy as often, but you can tell just by looking at him how proud he is of you already-- he even wanted to share his name with you! What a lucky little boy! Tomorrow, you will finally let us meet you and see that handsome little face you like to hide. Welcome to the world baby Cullen-- you have touched my life and made me a better person. Love you lots!

It was wonderful to see your Mommy and Daddy and to meet you Cullen. You have such a great family and they love you so very much. You are blessed to have Christian parents that will be with you in Heaven. Please know that Uncle George and I love you very very much and we are praying for all of you. Love & Hugs, Aunt Jo Ann

Your little boy is so beautiful and sweet. You and Joe are such wonderful parents. Cullen is so lucky to have you both. Stay strong, your love for each other burns very bright, so much so that it's impossible not to see. Strength and love to everyone.

As a mother and grammy I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful relationship with both of you. I have watched God give you both the strength, will and grace to carry Cullen until he is born. It is a special couple who puts their child first in this very difficult time. You truly are remarkable parents and I know Cullen loves you very much for taking such good care of him. After meeting everyone at the office yesterday and Dr Tressler, there is no doubt that God put you in their hands and they feel priviledged to be caring for all of you. That is quite a blessing! It was so comforting to see and hear that. This little man has captured a lot of peoples hearts and I can't wait to meet him.

Holly, I have been reading your posts with tears in my eyes. Since we have know you, I never realized what all you and your husband have been through with your pregnancy. You always have a smile on your face and a positive attitude. You are truly an inspiration! xo

Sweet baby Cullen, you truly are an amazing gift from God. You have touched my heart in ways I never thought possible. I love watching you grow and hearing about all the fun things you do with your mommy and daddy, who are two of the most amazing people I know. It meant the world to me to feel you kicking the other day. I know your time here on earth may be short, but I also know that there is so much ahead of you. I personally know two sweet little boys who will love to have you to play with. Give them a big kiss for me. I love you Cullen Joesph and I always will!!!
