The twins are beautiful!
Lyndsay and Matthew Brentlinger of Toledo, Ohio, have been trying to have a baby for more than two years. And after undergoing IVF treatments, they finally got their wish last year when Lyndsay gave birth to twins – William and Reagan.
Sadly, William’s heart wasn’t fully developed – which they discovered during mommy Lyndsay’s 20-week ultrasound. Doctors said that his prognosis was bleak and that he would most likely be a stillborn.
But William survived the pregnancy and birth. He was able to go home with his parents and twin, and he even met his fur siblings. And to make the most of the family’s time together, a family friend booked photographer Lindsey Brown to immortalize the moment with beautiful photos.
Lindsey talked about the moment on her blog:
Life is just not fair sometimes. A lot of the time. I’ll never understand God’s plan and why he takes the ones he does, and when he takes them.
I received a phone call out of the blue, the Sunday before Christmas, asking if I was at all available to squeeze in a last minute newborn session, for twins. She realized it was right before Christmas, and that it was very last minute. And me on the other line, I’m thinking how I just had to turn away three other newborn sessions who hadn’t previously booked with me, but had contacted me last minute. But this was different. I listened as the friend of Mom explained to me that one of the twins, William, was a miracle…
My heart breaks for this family. Some of the kindest people I’ve met, by the way. And by far, some of the strongest. Tears didn’t flow until the very end as I packed up. I really just wanted to stay and hold little William. A lot of my clients I get to see again for a one year session, or a family session, and knowing I would never see this beautiful boy again, broke my heart.
