Cutest legs with socks I have ever seen!

My heart aches for Mel, Austan and the entire family. I am Jennifer Miller's mom in Austin, Texas. Jennifer and Annalee are friends from Steiner Ranch Elem. I have added Witt and the family to my Church's prayer list (Covenant United Methodist Church, Austin). I will continue to keep Witt, Mel and Austan in my own prayers. May God continue to enfold all of you in his infinite love.

Precious toes! :) I know Annalee through friends and am so excited to pray with you for Sweet Baby Witt! (beautiful name, by the way!) Your faith through this difficult situation is so strong and admirable and I truly appreciate you sharing your story with all of us! -Brittney Poe

I'm Karen's (grandma) college friend and sorority sister. The courage and faith of this entire family is so very uplifting for me. I join so many others in prayer for Mel and Austan and Witt. You're doing a fantastic job, Mel. What a blessed mother you are.

I've tried several times to say something out here but words fail me. Just know my heart is still there with you guys. Witt is so etched in my mind and heart. Thank you for letting me be there with you guys. Meeting him has made me a different person. Thank you for that.

I don't know anyone in this family but was lead to Witt's blog through Kelly's blog

Just wanted you to know that complete strangers in Frisco, Tx are praying for Sweet Witt and his family. Thank you for sharing his story and the amazing faith and courage of his family with all of us. We serve a mighty GOD and little Witt is already doing BIG things with his sweet little life... Look at all the believers brought together and praying!!
I added a short entry on my blog to get my group of friends and blog readers praying as well... God Bless you all.

I don't care if you understand character conflict and setting and if they've learned 10 new vocab words... I want to be with the family and with witt. I can't wait to see y'all tomorrow and amanda can't wait to meet witt!

I do not know any of you personally, but I am praying for Baby Witt. I came across his blog through some others that I read, your family is amazing and inspirational. May God guide your hearts and spirits to see his plan. Baby Witt is already doing amazing things in the short amount of time he has been on this earth. My prayers are with you!

I found your blog through some others. I wanted to let you know that on Oprah tomorrow (10/28) there will be a story about a child named Eliot who had Trisomy 18. You can read his story at
If you type in ninety nine ballons on you tube, you can watch the sweet video his parents made about him.

Praying for you and your family!

Big A and Mel,
Well I don't know of any words to help you guys at this time except the Lord works in mysterious ways. We don't know what he has planned but there is a plan. Call me if you need anything at all. I can't come to the hospital because I'm still recovering from the flu bug.

Witt is such a beautiful baby boy and it will be my privilege to pray for him and your family.

What sweet little feet!

You don't know me but, I am Annalee's "blind date" friend. :) I have been praying non-stop for Mel, Austan, Witt, and the rest of your family. He is such a precious boy and is already making a huge impact on this world. Your family's faithfulness and devotion to God during this season in your life is making a huge impact on so many people's lives. Witt's sweet little life is bringing so much glory to God. Mel's strength as a mother is so amazing and her love for Chris and her son radiate from all the pictures.

Kelli, Chris and Caroline
