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.
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.
