My Story

Koen Michael Hanson was born to Amanda (15) and Jacob (17) December 8th, 2007 at a whopping 8lbs 5.4 ounces after a fairly eventful delivery at 4:43 am. He was a perfect baby. He had a little jaundice but that was easily fixed with a night under the lights. Once we finally got him home and to ourselves it was heaven on earth. He was such an easy baby, a very strong and advanced baby, but he was very easy to take care of. Never cried. He LOVED the bath and shower. I think the time he was the calmest was when he took a shower with me. Or the one time he took a bath with me. He loved his daddy, and I know, "how do you know", well i just do. If for some reason he wasnt hungry or I couldnt get him to calm down, Jake would walk in the room and just start talking and he would listen. His daddys voice was so low pitched he was used to hearing it while he was still inside. We spent two months with our little boy and they were the best on earth. God gave us a miracle.

On the morning of Monday, February 4, 2008, I was getting up to get ready for school at about 5:30. Koen always slept with me because of hip and pelvic bone complications i had, it was imbearable to get up to get koen in the middle of the night should something arise. so we slept in the recliner. I went to pick him up to move him into my room where his daddy was sleeping so that I could get ready for school. But when I picked him up he didnt do his little twitchy thing that he did any time I disturbed him from sleeping. I was scared so I held him close and I didn't hear him breathing. I ran down the hall screaming with my baby boy tightly in my arms "he's not breathing!". I woke up my parents (and my brother, sister and jake) and my mom took him to the living room and called 911. i collapsed with jacob on the bed. I knew in my heart he was gone and nothing could be done before I even reached my parents room. The paramedics came and took him out to the ambulance and tried working on him, but I was right, there was nothing they could do. It was to late. They brought him back inside and we held him and cried, family came over and the rest is history. It was a very long week preparing for the viewing and funeral.

It's been nearly 2 years now since we lost our little guy but not a day goes by that any of us don't think about him. We love and miss him.
