A Baby Brother for Isaac – Max Sanford Immel

On September 15, 2017, at 3:43 AM, we welcomed Max Sanford Immel into our family.   He made his appearance a whole three weeks early, weighing in at 7 lbs 12 oz and 19 inches long.

He came home wearing a tribute to his big brother, Isaac.  Since elephants have always been Isaac’s “thing” it seemed only right that he’d be looking out for little Max.  IMG_3556.jpg

We’ll never stop missing Isaac or wondering what he’d be like today.  We’ll never forget our precious moments with him.  However, having our living, breathing rainbow baby home safely has most certainly brought joy, happiness and hope back into our lives.

Max, you are perfect.  Mommy and daddy can’t wait to see the boy and man you grow up to be and to tell you about your big brother, Isaac, who would have loved you oh so much.Rainbow Baby

  1. Congratulations on your sweet bundle. It is so bittersweet to bring home a baby after losing one. Max will never replace Isaac, but he will bring you great joy and peace. Prayers for you in these days ahead.


    • Thank you so much! You’ve been such an inspiration to me the last year and a half. I had my whole family following along during your pregnancy and NICU stay. So happy that your story also has a bundle of joy now.


  2. Congratulations! I know I’m a little late to the party but for sure I am happy to see the birth of your son, Max announced. I think of you and Isaac and your family often and the impact you had on my life and my career. With your son coming up on his 2nd birthday I only have thoughts of joy for all of you. And I still have those Barbie pink glasses!
