Baby Burks with Anencephaly

It is with a heavy heart to announce that we won't be able to keep our baby boy.  He has been diagnosed with Anencephaly which is incompatible with life and we will lose him before, during or shortly after birth. We've wanted to tell everyone for a while but Cory and I had to find our way of coping and getting comfortable enough to let everyone know. Please take this into consideration as I know everyone may have questions but we just don't have answers. It's hard for us and I know y'all will be heartbroken as well but hopefully we can try again in the future for a healthy baby!

Our overall goal includes the out of pocket costs for a vaginal delivery with complicating diagnoses, cremation services, and also a photographer to document our delivery and those precious first moments.
