The post we never wanted to make…

At 4:10am, Logan passed peacefully in Mommy’s arms with Daddy holding his hand and his armed wrapped around both of us. Lucas was able to say goodbye shortly before he passed. He declined very quickly from 1am and after. Our hearts are heavy as there is a giant void in our life now. However, Logan is running free, somewhere beyond the moon. This flawed body on earth no longer restrains his beautiful spirit. He is free to sit up, crawl, walk, run and play to his heart’s content. We already miss our baby boy terribly, but we will go forward in life better than before because he came into our lives.

Logan touched more people in his 10 months than some do in an entire lifetime. We are so fortunate to be his parents.

Love to all of you as you go about your day. Give your spouse/child/family member/friend an extra hug and “I love you”. Thank you for your thoughts, prayers, love, and support during our journey. The journey won’t stop here though. Logan will never be forgotten and we will fight for a cure, that no child, no family, will ever have to feel the devastation of SMA again.

  1. I am devastated for your family, Tia. I wish you peace and comfort in the coming days, as you deal with something no parent should ever have to deal with. You have shown more love, grace, and generosity to Logan in his short time here than some of us will ever experience. He is so lucky to have you as his mother.

    It is amazing how someone so young can touch so many people. And boy has Logan done this! Logan, SMA, and the need to find a cure will never be forgotten. My family loves him as if he were our own. Thank you for sharing his story with us. Peace to you all, and especially that bright, beautiful, smiley boy of yours. He is loved.

  7. My heart jerked a bit when I read the title of your post. First off, I am so sorry you have to deal with the pain of saying good-bye to a sweet baby. I too, have walked that path. Dear Lord I just ask that you be with the Ruth family during the coming days/weeks. I thank you that sweet Daddy had Mother’s Day last Sunday for sweet Tia and I thank you beyond words that Logan gave his mommy such a beautiful gift in that last smile. May it always be in her heart. Surround them with people who love them and especially let others give attention to Lucas during this chaotic/hard time…he too is now missing his sweet hard for a little one to say good-bye to someone he loves so much. Amen.

    Love and hugs Tia, hubby (sorry can’t remember his name) and Lucas and the grandparents and the rest of the family. Ali
