James enters the world

my God, how the empty bassinet makes me want to cry every time I'm in our room
4 hours old
being confirmed by Msgr. Bliss
James Fulton Linus
his right leg had a lot of tissue damage due to medication leaking. 
amazingly it has healed almost completely.


  1. He's such a beautiful little man! Be assured Heaven is getting a hurrican of prayers. Lots of love and prayers to all of you ;0)

  2. Oh, Bonnie, how my heart aches for you going through this. What a beautiful boy he is. Thank you for sharing the pictures. I am praying continuously for the complete healing of James, as well as for peace and comfort for you, Travis, and the rest of your families.

  3. He's beautiful Bonnie. Praying for all of you!

  4. I heard your story from a friend in Peoria and I wanted you to know that our family has been praying constantly for James and your whole family for Bishop Sheen's intercession. We were where you are now 3 years ago. Our 4th daughter was born w/o a heartbeat and not breathing & suffered a series of seizures at birth. Through the intercession of St. Gianna miracles happened. There is hope. The MD's and RN's at the NICU at OSF are amazing people. My heart is truly with you even though we have never met. God bless-

  5. I am praying for you and your beautiful son. My 5th child was born at home in May and we transferred in an emergency due to breathing difficulties. I will keep your family in my prayers. *hugs*

  6. what a big handsome boy! I'm praying for you all.

  7. I love his nose. :) And, the "clueless" pic of Travis made me laugh out loud.

    Still praying too. :)

  8. Oh my goodness! What a sweetie pie! I'll be praying for you all!
