After the birth and death of "bucket list baby" Shane Haley, questions were raised about the significance of infant baptism; parents Dan and Jenna were sure to have their baby boy baptized before he passed away.
Shane was known as the "bucket list baby" because his parents created a special bucket list of what they wanted to do with their baby boy before he died. They received news of his condition early in the pregnancy and did all they had originally planned to do with Shane after he was born. They had a very memorable pregnancy and documented their experiences on Facebook, garnering national attention.
"Today at 6:15AM, after meeting his entire family and being baptized into the Catholic faith, baby Shane died peacefully in his Mother's arms … we are so grateful for the time that we were blessed to hold and hug our son … Shane spent his entire life in the arms of people that loved him unconditionally and I don't think you could ask for a more beautiful life then that … he is home now with the Lord and will forever be our little miracle!" Dan posted on Facebook earlier this week. more >>
