December 13, 2012 Joseph's Birthday

I will never forget you. See upon the palms of my hands I have engraved you -Isaiah 49: 15-16

Singing Christmas Carols while Joseph meets his sister

Our little Angel
Dear Friends,
In this beautiful season of Advent, we welcome the Newborn King who came so that we might all have eternal life. Today our family welcomed our little angel, Joseph Angelo Mohler, born this morning at 9:40am. He left our arms and entered into our heavenly Father's at 10:40. During his time, we baptized him, prayed with him, sang songs including Christmas carols and held him. He was even able to meet all four grandparents and Aunt Katie. He knew only love and joy in his short life.

We are forever grateful to all of you for your support, love and prayers throughout our pregnancy. We will keep you posted on upcoming services and celebrations. A funeral mass will be held Saturday the 22nd at 10am at St. Marks in Catonsville and burial at New Cathedral Cemetary, a place very special to John's family, will follow. We would love to see any of you that would like to join us.

We are humbled and honored by your outpouring of gifts and flowers for us. We ask now instead, that you consider making a donation in honor of Joseph Angelo to The Northwest Pregnancy Center and Maternity Home in DC( to help other moms and babies in need, and continue to bring meaning to his life.

Sending much love to you all. We will provide you with more updates and details in the near future.
Jenny & John
