Thank you so much for visting our page! Every year we walk and raise money for our son Kameron Zenen. As of November 2014 we have raised over $2,000 for The Tears Foundation. Here is our story and why we walk and want to raise money for this charity. 18ndays after we loss Kameron I was at my first Tears support meeting. Not only do they help financially they give support, which was a huge part of my journey and why The Tears foundation is so near and dear to my heart.
Our story starts very similar to the MANY of the families who have had a loss. On October 31, 2013 I was currently 33 weeks pregnant with our 3rd child. We were expecting a little boy! We were overjoyed to have a second son! Being that it was Halloween and a school day for our oldest child I was pretty busy and moving around a lot and not feeling the baby move didn't alarm me because I thought "oh he's just sleeping." Well the Halloween parade went great but still I didn't feel any movement. But I just kept telling myself, "its OK he is just having a quiet day, I'll mention it to the Dr. at my appt later today." It was time for my appointment, signed in and waited for my name to be call. While sitting in the waiting room I was doing everything I could to get this little baby to move, but no luck. Finally my name was called, normal routine of weight, blood pressure check, and they always ask "feeling the baby move well" That's when I said actually not today. She also said "oh he's probably sleeping. After waiting in the room what felt like 5 hours the Dr. finally came in and said "lets's see how baby is doing today." He took out the hand heart Doppler, put the gel on my belly and started to look for the heartbeat. Silence....tried looking some more, still nothing. He then asked the nurse to get the hand held sonogram machine. Put some more gel on my belly and silence, he then said let's puts you on the ultra sound machine. So we walked over to the ultra sound tech put more gel on my belly and not even a second after she put the wand on my belly, I knew. I still asked anyways, do you see the heartbeat? The 4 words a mother never wants to hear I heard that day, "there is no heartbeat." My husband was at work that day and I had to call my husband and tell him over the phone our son had died. That was the hardest phone call I ever had to make. When my husband got to the office we sat down with the Dr. and talked about the next steps. My husband and I both agreed I wanted to deliver our son right away,so we headed over to the hospital. At midnight on November 1, 2013 the nurse came in and started the potocin and the induction was started. It took many hours to get the contractions started but once they did it wasn't long that I delivered our son. On November 1, 2013 at 9:52 pm I delivered our precious baby boy Kameron Zenen. He weighed 4 lbs 8 oz and was 17 3/4 inches long. He was perfect in every way. We spent the next 14 hours with him, he was so beautiful and perfect! Later that day we had to say goodbye to our son and leave the hospital without our baby. The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. Job 1:21. Our son is waiting up in heaven for us and we look forward the day we meet again!
