Thanks for sharing your story here. It is an inspiration to so many and hopefully will provide strength to you as well.May God, the source of hope, fill you with all joy and peace by means of your faith in him, so that your hope will continue to grow by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
God chose you because he knew how stong you are, just has chose Mary to bear His child. God doesn't make mistakes and while hard for those of us left on this earth he chose to bring Gabriel home immediately, never having to suffer the pain, hardships, and grief that we bear. Our prayers are with you for peace, strength and joy throughout all of this!
The website is beautiful and your courage and strength continue to astound me. You are truly a testament to faith. ~Kel

And so your journey leads you down the path less traveled, for the excitement and happiness of birth meet the grief and loss of death. It is a whole life cycle in such a brief time - and not a child I have met has been loved more. You are beautiful people with a strength, devotion, and faith that remind us to honor how life and death are tightly entwined in both pain and joy. I deeply honor your choice and your family. With love to you, Meghan, and your beloved, Kyle; and your joy, Joel; and your cherished blessing, Gabe. Jenna
They say that everyhting happens for a reason. Even though we do no always understand the why or the reason, we just have to accept things for how they go. God could not have picked two better or more wonderful people than you and Kyle to care for his precious angel. I am thinking of you and csn in no way even image what you guys are groing through on a daily basis. Stay strong.
I don't think there are any words of comfort to give you. The strength you both are showing is amazing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all!
May God's grace be with you and your dear child.God has been shining his light on you and your family.You are really glowing with his love and he will be with you on this journey.

Tell me how much i love you....I love you to the moon and back! Julia and i love to say that to each other!Just want to share a smile with you!God Bless!

Meg,Your courage and faith is so wonderful to see. I wish both you and your family peace as you walk through your journey.
Meghan and Kyle and Joel,Thank you for allowing so many to know how you are coping...your faith inspires....truly. God does work in mysterious ways.
Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Your website is beautiful. You are both so strong and your faith is truly amazing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We have heard your story from the McKendricks. Your website is beautiful and inspiring. Please know that my little church in Geneva Ohio will be praying for your family. Thanks for allowing God to use you and your testimony in this way. God bless!
On Lincoln's funeral prayer cards, we had the following:I'll lend you for a little time a Child of Mine. He said, for you to love the while he lives and mourn for when he's dead. It may be six or seven years or twenty-two or three but will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me? He'll bring his charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief, you'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay since all from earth return, but there are lessons taught down here, I want this child to learn. I've looked this wide world over in search of teachers true and from throngs that crowd Life's lane I have decided you. Now will you give him all your love nor think the labor vain and hate Me when I come to call to take him back again? I fancy that I heard them say Dear Lord, Thy Will be done. For all the joy this child will bring the risk of grief we'll run, we'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may and for the Happiness we've known forever grateful stay. And should the angels call for him much sooner than we planned we'll brave the bitter grief that came and try to understand.
Barb McKendrick is a friend of mine, and sent me your Web site.......I read everything in it, and even though I do not know you, my thoughts and many prayers will be with you during this difficult journey.God will be with you always, and with little Joel.......he is a sweetheart.
Meghan,My eyes well up and I feel chills down my back as I read your words. What you are going through must be so difficult, but at the same time I am amazed at the amount of strength that you speak through your words. I pray that the Lord will continue provide you with strength through this journey and continue to use you and your words as a testimony toward others who are looking on.
What a wonderful choice to choose life for your baby boy. I'm encouraged and blessed to have been given your names and website by Barb McKendrick who attends our church at Blue Rock in Waynesboro. Even the music, you chose for your website is so meaningful and points us to the source of our strength. I know that Jesus will help you through this entire journey of faith. May God bless you greatly that you might continue to be a blessing, comforting those with the same comfort that you have received from Him (2 Corinthians 1:3-5).
I am so proud to know such loving parents.Your strength really is such a wonderful inspiration to us all.My thoughts and prayers are with you today.There is nothing sweeter then a child made of love...in your heart always...forever in your heart.I know God is with you.The closeness you share will always be with you.Sometimes we just need to be quiet...be still...and feel his spirit...His peace be with you always!
Meghan, (and Kyle),Hi Meg! I met you a long time ago. I went to high school with Kyle, and my cousin works with your mom. I had heard about your pregnancy through her. Our son is just a little younger than Joel, so we know the miracle in having a child on loan from our precious Father. There have been many nights during our night time prayers (we always pray with Kaleb while he sleeps in his crib) that we have lifted you and your family up to God. I was so touched by your entry, that reminded me too - that sometimes we need to "let go and let God" have his will be done. I can't imagine the sorrow, but take comfort in knowing "his joy always comes in the morning." God bless you, Kyle, Joel, and Gabe. We'll continue to be praying for you and your family. Love, the Ritter Family
Meghan and Kyle,I think of Gabriel as God's precious baby angel who is being sent here to leave his mark on this world. His existence will teach us all a little something about the value of life and how miraculous babies are. I will continue to pray for you.Amy Miner Staley
Meghan and Kyle,What a bold and brave faith you are living out for all to see. You know that your reward is ultimately in the next life. I pray for you daily as I cannot imagine your struggle. I only know that the One we worship is the One and only who can take that pain and turn it into something beautiful...another reason to worship Him! May God bless this journey you're on, the healing He's already prepared for your hearts, and the ministry He's preparing you for as you walk this difficult road.May He give you strength for each moment as it comes.Love you guys.Erin Jenner
Your story has been a blessing to me. Thank you for allowing us to go through this journey with you. I have never heard of this disease before. You and your entire family are in my prayers. Gabriel is truly a blessing to us all!!! May God bless you in all that you do!Wendy Roberts
We will be praying for your family. I recently heard in a sermon that death is like a ship that sails out across a sea and is gone, and we say "There he goes". But with Christ there is someone waiting on another shore and at the same time they say "There he is!!! He is here at last!!!"
we have all been praying for you and your family, what you are doing is truely amazing, I work in the Special Care Nursery at WCH and we have been told about your wishes and plans. I can not imagine how difficult each and every day of the wait is for you. Thank you for sharing your story with others and your amazing strength.
My friend Lea shared your story & asked us to pray for you & your sweet baby. I want you to know we will be praying everyday for you all. It is amazing how many hearts that little guy has already touched. He is giving each of us something special by his little journey. I can't help but love the little guy! Thanks for the gift Gabriel Dean. Amy Jennings
You don't know me, but I am praying for you and your husband, and both your sons. YOur website is filled with such amazing peace and faith it truly bolsters my faith as I read your story. There is nothing in this world that can grant the kind of peace that conveys through your story. You are shinning the light of Jesus for all to see and it is beautiful-I pray a double portion of blessing to your family. Thank you for allowing God to work through you and trusting in Him so completely. Through His willing vessels will the world know Him. You have left an imprint on my soul challenging and growing my faith. Bless you!
I have met several remarkable people in my ife, but I have never met one more loving and selfless as you. Words can not begin to describe how deeply touched I am by your journey. It is apparent that Gabriel Dean has brought more to your life than you ever imagined possible. As your family nears the end of your pregnancy, I pray that God will continue to shower you with love. You are truly an angel who walks among us.
Meghan and Kyle,You're website and testimony are an inspiration to the grace and strength of God and your relationship with Him. Patrick just sent me your story, and I have added you to our prayer chain at LHE, so both I and others will be praying for you. Despite having miscarried 3 times, I cannot immagine the strength it takes to stand in such a heartbreaking situation. I know that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." The strength of God and His peace are my prayers for you. I hope to meet you in person at LHE sometime soon, and please let me know if I or LHE can do anything to hold you up during the remainder of your pregnancy or the time after. God will sustain you as I can see he has been all along.
This is an absolutely beautiful website. We have been keeping you in our prayers since we heard the news. Continue to be strong...God works in mysterious ways!
Dingle Family,The strength of your love and committment is visible through your pictures. I too will keep the Dingle's in my prayers.

Dear Kyle and Meghan,Thank you so much for allowing God's love to shine through your lives during one of the most difficult times any parent could imagine. The peace of God which transcends all understanding is obvious in your writings and is a true testimony to believers and unbelievers alike. I pray that you will continue to trust and lean on our Father who loves you, Joel and Baby Gabe, perfectly.
Meghan and Kyle, I am amazed at the faith you have through this pain. God is obviously speaking to and through you in all of this. while everything is so hard, how good it is to know your Father feels your pain since none of us can truly understand. Praying.
Dear Meghan and Kyle,I was so saddened to hear about the situration you are facing right. Your website is a wonderful testimony to your faith and trust in the Lord when things don't make sense. May you continue to feel his presence in your lives as he carries you through these difficult days. God bless you all as you cling to Him.

We are praying for your beautiful family. You are both witnessing to others a true walk with God! May God continue to comfort you and give you a peace that only He can give!!!
"There is nothing the nearnest of Christ won't heal"...this is a reality...I have words, I have tears, I have questions, I have fears, I have confidence mixed with more questions, I have helpless feelings, But I have God...it is His presence that somehow gives me all I need...we think of you very often and do not forget, we offer our presence as you might need it...but know and rememeber that a retreat to Him is where your strength will come...we love you guys...Tim and Karen

We will be praying for you as God brings you to mind during the weeks ahead. May His Name be glorified through you.
Dear Meghan, Kyle, Joel, & Gabriel,I have been a friend of Dawn for years and she told me your story. While looking at your website, I can't help but remember how close the McKendrick family always was and what a good family they are. Your story reflects how family closeness, faith, and good friends can help us through the difficult times.God Bless you all,Meg
Kyle and Meghan, You have been in my thoughts and prayers all summer. Having found and read your website for the very first time tonight, I couldn't help but think about all of the hearts and lives this precious unborn baby has touched. May God bless both of you and Joel. Thank you so much for sharing your story.
Meghan and Kyle, We met 2 Sunday's ago at Lifehouse (I was in the nursery with Joel). Your beautiful family is in my prayers. Thank you for sharing your story and your strength. May God hold you in hIs arms always.-Jamie
I received a request via email to pray for you and your family and upon visiting this site I am moved deeply in my own spirit. You have been in my prayers that God will pour out His grace and His favor upon you and yours in the days ahead. Beth Moore says that "grace is God's favor looking for a place to happen"; I believe YOU are in His perfect grace right now and we will continue to pray that you remain there.
Dear Meghan and Kyle,please know that we are praying for you and your family.... you are truly walking with our heavenly Father. I am thankful and encouraged for your strength and testimony.
Megan and Kyle, Know your entire family is in our thoughts and prayers. May you both continue to find strength in your faith.
Dear Meghan and Kyle,Your testimony is a true example of what is says in Phillipians 4:13; I can do everything through Him who gives me strength. God bless you and your little angel!
Your pain is tremendous but you have so much support through God, your family and friends! You are in my thoughts and prayers during this painful and difficult time.Your faith and strength are a true inspiration to so many!
Dear Meghan, Kyle, and Joel,My heart goes out to you all through this very difficult time. Meg, you have such a positive faith, I cannot imagine how you get through each and every day. My heart goes out to you and your families as you face the road ahead. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers always. Love,Monica Cunningham
Meghan and Kyle - What deep maturity and faith you display and are so bold to share. Surely your testimony will be more far-reaching than you will ever know. No doubt a great deal of your preparation for this time has come from the teaching of a wonderful mother and grandmother who taught you and loved you so well in the ways of the Lord.May you rest in His loving arms and find peace in His presence.
Your story is amazing. You are giving life, even if for a moment. And God is honored through your choices. I pray for you during this difficult journey. May God be your comfort.
Meghan,Hang in there, honey. You're almost there. To be honest, the best is yet to come. Baby Gabriel will be in your arms soon (in the coming weeks), and your heart will be completely filled with joy. Trust me on that one...Make sure to keep in contact with your "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" photographers and your pastor (for pictures and baptism). Also, make sure to bring a video camera with you. Dance with your baby and get that on film. Bring books to the hospital and take video of you reading to him (whether his soul is still on earth or if he is on his way to Heaven). Bring ink to get his footprints on everything (EVERYTHING!). Foot and hand molds, your own bath towel, bath soap, lotion. Lots to bring to the hospital! (We had about 4 huge pieces of luggage when Lincoln came into the world. Not one nurse or doctor said we had too much stuff. Lots of memories to make in a precious amount of time...)You've got my cell number. Call me if you need to talk.Love and prayers,Sara-Rae (Mommy of an Angel)
Continued prayers for courage and strength!

Kyle & Meghan,Your family has been in my thoughts throughout the summer. Your website is amazing and your faith in the Lord is inspiring for all who know you!!

I'm certain he has big plans for you and your family! Stay strong and know that you're surrounded by love, prayers and support!
You don't know me well, but I am a friend of your Mom's from grade school and high school. What you are doing is surely a testimony of your faith that God is in control of our lives, and has a plan for us... Romans 8, verse 28 "And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into his plans." You are in my thoughts daily, and may God grant you strength and courage for the coming days
Thank you for sharing your testimony. God bless all of you. You are the most courageous person I know.
Hang in there little Meg. You and Kyle are doing great!"Cast all your burdens on Him, because He cares for you."
Kyle and Meghan,I went to school with Kyle and was going to write well wishes for the first day of school tomorrow on his facebook. I saw your link for this website and was intrigued. I read your story and want you to know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am so sorry to hear what you are going through. God Bless!Charlotte BaileyI can do everything through him who gives me strength.Philippians 4:13
Meghan,You look absolutely beautiful. I've been praying for you and your family that God's infinite power will continue to hold and keep you. You are a wonderful person and God will never leave or forsake you. The website looks great!

I'll be thinking about and praying for you and your family. Stay strong, Katy
Meghan and Kyle,I am sitting here in my office, trying to concentrate, and all I can think about is the both of you and what you are going through right now.You have been so strong and your faith in God is an inspiration to all.I love you both,Linda
You have no idea how many other lives you've touched through your trial. Your love and faith is evident. My prayers are with you every step of the way.
I am a friend of Cindy Bryan's and she told us your story. She said you are delivering right now. I am inspired by your story and am praying for you and your family. I have a niece in heaven due to a birth defect and know the sorrow this can bring. God is awesome tho and will be with you all the way! Thanks for sharing your story.
Meghan, Kyle & Joel,The Plan of the Master WeaverMy life is but a weaving between the Lord and me,I may not choose the colors, He knows what they should be,For He can view the pattern upon the upper side,While I can see it only on this, the underside…Sometimes He weaveth sorrow, which seemeth strange to me, But I will trust His judgment, and work on faithfully, ‘Tis He who fills the shuttle, and He knows what is best, So I shall weave in earnest, leaving to Him the rest…Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles cease to flyShall God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why -The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver’s skillful handAs the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.Thank you for being so strong and courageous... You are truly an inspiration to all.Love you,Hannah
Mr. Dingle and Meghan,Just wanted to let you know that we are very sorry that you are going through this difficult time.I know that your faith in God has helped.You are in our thoughts and prayers.The Kelly Family
Meghan, After reading your post earlier today I couldn't understand what you were speaking about. I then fell across your website. I can't remember the last time that I cried for unselfish reasons until today. Your story broke my heart. I can't fathom being in your situation and the strength that you have, and will gain from this. I realized that I take many things for granted. I wish I had read this sooner, wish your family the best, wish your moments w/ Gabriel are cherished, wish I could hug you right now. God Bless, Quinn
Meghan, Klye, Joel, Gabriel and Families, Gabriel has reach many hearts in his short little life. His story will continue to wreak pain in our hearts. But, your families strength flows into our spirits and enligthen us. We weep for your loss, but rejoice in the small angel who touched our very souls. Bless you for the courage to share Gabriel's story with others. This will guide so many, who may follow in your steps. Mary
Sleep in peace sweet angel
I am thinking of you and your family.... I wish you much love and peace.
We will say our prayers to Gabe, our angel, each night.
I have thought of you and your family daily over the past several months. Your familyis truly and inspiration to many of us. God works in amazing ways and you help me to remember that every day. Your in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks you for being a witness of God's love to everyone and sharing your journey with us. I love you both! Many prayers are with you!
Dear Meghan and Kyle, Oh how my heart goes out to you both. You have been used as mighty instruments of God in a world where abortion on demand seems to be the norm. God never wastes our sorrows. He will honor your obedience and He knows your every tear. May He carry you on eagle's wings in the days ahead and hold you in His arms of love as He comforts your hearts. Praying 4 U
The angels are singing...the stars shining brighter....a new angel has gone home. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Meghan and Kyle,You are two precious people, I love you both and long to take this pain from you. You have blessed my heart tremendously, I will never forget what you have done for your precious Gabriel. Choosing to give him life, a beit short, rather than choosing abortion. I look at his precious face and in my human limitations do not understand why God didn't choose to heal him. I so prayed for that...while I know he is perfect now. What a homecoming it will be for you...one day very soon. Much Love to you both...thank you for sharing this journey with us.
The angels in heaven have welcomed one beautiful little boy. Thank you for sharing the photos, your journey and your faith with us. God bless
Dear Meghan and Kyle,Yesterday evening as I made dinner I found myself overcome with emotion for you. When I stepped outside to get some air, I literally gasped to see the most beautiful double rainbow and could not help but believe that God painted it in the sky especially for your Gabe. Thank you for sharing your heart and feelings with such transparency. Your journey has changed me. Thank you for allowing us, those who care for you and have surrounded you in prayer, the unique opportunity to travel this difficult road alongside you. May you feel our and the Father's love in a special way now and in the coming days.Trish Stevens
Kyle and Meghan,Gabe is absolutely beautiful........thanks so much for sharing his photos with all of us. Please know that the MVE staff has you all in our prayers. As I walked the halls at school yesterday, everyone was thinking about you all and asking for 'news.' I will keep you in my prayers. K.
Kyle and Meghan having seen you grow up Klye from a child into a man all along we often talked about how deep a faith you had. when we heard about your child we knew that God would only give this to you and meghan for you are strong in your faith and this will get you through as you know God gave you and your family this little time with Gabe but you all will spend eternity together. just hold on to the joy of the time together and let God have the pain He wants it. Love Tom and Teresa
No words can express the love a parent has for their child. I have felt the sadness of losing one of my own and although I cannot compare my sorrow to yours, I am overcome with emotion knowing that a loss at any stage of pregnancy or life is no easy task to conquer. There are many "prayer warriors" for you Kyle and Meghan. We are all reaching our hands to God, that He help you and your family through this time. Continued prayers for love, courage, and strength ring to the Heavens... With Love, Heather
Thank you for sharing your special photos of Gabriel. He is so beautiful and it is a blessing you got to spend time with him and so many family members were there to greet him. Thanks for being an inspiration to so many people by trusting God every step of the way with his little life.Much Love, Lauren and the Gibble family
Words are so inadequate at this time of sorrow. Hopefully the following words will comfort your soul. Hebrews 12: 1-3 Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us. Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down a the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. Kyle and Meghan, you have run a good race. You have glorified God through your enveloping grief. You are highly esteemed by God. He has seen you sow His words in your tears. All of your toil and sorrow is forever before Him as you glorify Him through your faith. I love you both dearly, Momma Hobby
Dear Meghan, Kyle & Joel,Your journey reminds me that I have a little sister that I did not get meet when she was borne in Hagerstown in 1953.It will be my JOY to meet her in Heaven along with GABE. My prayers are with you ALL. Love, SUE
Please know that you are in my prayers and will continue to be as time goes on and you mourn the loss of Gabe, and the ability to hold him in your arms. Find comfort in knowing that he's in the arms of someone now who loves him so much more than any one else could . . . Jesus. This difficult and heart breaking experience has become part of your life story which will bring honor and glory to God and touch other lives in unimaginable ways. Thank you for sharing with others in such a selfless way.
Kyle and Meghan,Thank you for sharing your photos of your precious Gabe. What a beautiful baby! I am saddened by your loss and pray for God to fill you with His grace, hope, and peace. May He strengthen you in the days ahead when you are weary and send you encouragement when you are grieving. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted. I pray you feel His active presence. You and your family will continue to be in our prayers.
I'm Tricia Stevens' mom. I cried.Did you know Psalm 116:15?"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."May you feel the Holy Spirit's arms around you to comfort you.
Megan & Kyle,May God's arm's surround you both and comfort you. Gabriel is beautiful and has parent's who have given him much love that he so deserved. Thank you for sharing your lives. You will see him again one day and he will run and jump into your loving arm's again...My heart's aches for you..
Kyle and Meghan,From the first moment Dawn told me about your angel I have prayed for your family.I could not have imagined how your lives would have taken a turn like this. The strength you have both shown is amazing. This website you have started is an inspiration for anyone that reads and views it. I pray for you to have the strength to get threw this time in your lives. The pictures of Gabe were awesome. What a beautiful son.God Bless you and keep you,Love Suzanne
My prayers and tears are with you at this time. You have let us all know the way to greive and still go on. What a better place this world is because of you and your beautiful family.
Meghan, Kyle and Joel, I wanted to share this poem with you. I found it online a while ago, for a scrapbook for our best friends who also lost a baby.It is called Little Angels- Author unknown.When God calls little children to dwell with Him above,We mortals sometime question the wisdom of His love.For no heartache compares with the death of one small childWho does so much to make our world, seem wonderful and mildPerhaps God tires of calling the aged to his fold,So He picks a rosebud, before it can grow old.God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but fewTo make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try,The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye."So when a little child departs, we who are left behindMust realize God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

Meghan and Kyle, I'm the Ultrasound Tech you so kindly speak of. I remember the day so vividly. Here I was with two doting wonderful parents and knowing that something wasn't quite right. My heart is heavy with grief for your family. Sometimes we question "why" with God, but as we all know, he always has a plan. Your website is such a loving tribute to your beautiful son and I'm glad you're sharing your story. Gabriel was beautiful. May God bless your family.
Gabe is so beautiful! Thank you for sharing your journey. I pray God will continue to bring healing to your family, and great peace.
dear meghan and kyle,i am a pastor friend of lacey ellis'. she sent me the link to your website and i just finished viewing it. what a beautiful witness to the strength of the love of God you are! thank you for your generosity in sharing your story with all of us. you have changed me by changing my perspective and encouraging my own journey of faith. thank you so very much.my prayer is that you both will know just how wide and deep is the love of God. i wish i had an answer for why this has happened, but i do not. what i do know is this-- our God is a God of love and kindness, justice, peace and unity. and i know that someday you will be reunited with gabriel. until then he rests in the gentle arms of Jesus. i pray you find comfort in knowing he went straight from your arms into Jesus'. i can think of no greater gift to give any child than that-- the very love of Christ.may God bless you and keep you, may He make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you, may the Lord look upon you with favor and give you peace.Pastor Stacey BradyHarmony Community Lutheran ChurchMyersville, Maryland
Earth has no pain or sorrow that Heaven cannot hold.Oh Meghan and Kyle, how are hearts break for you, and yet rejoice at the same time knowing that your little angel is wrapped in Jesus' arms and being loved by the One who saved him. After we lost Nicole, we came to believe that God has work for each of us to do, and when it is done, we get to go home. Gabriel finished his tasks very quickly as well. I know the aching you feel in your arms, as you so badly want to be holding him, but I assure you, it will get better. We are praying that Jesus wrap you in His arms as well, and hold you ever so tightly. We pray that He will be your comforter and your strength. May God bless you both, and all of your family. In Christ,Judene and Dewayne Dunagan (Lauren and John's friends)
We are certainly praying for you and want to support you in any way possible. You're courage and faith are remarkable, and we grieve with you as you mourn. Many people want to help and support you so don't hesitate to ask for help.Our hearts break at Gabriel's passing but are grateful for the few moments you were able to share with him. In love and prayer,Pastor Patrick
We love your web site and your message. We are so glad that you chose to give birth to this precious little life and love it for a short time. Thanks also for showing the photos of this precious little life - so fragile!Blessings and loveJoe and Lois Quesenberry
Dear Kyle and Meghan,I will never forget the day the you came to give us with the great news that we were going to be grandparents again! Meghan was not sure about having another child when Joel would be just 15 months old, but I have watched her be such a great mom to Joel and I knew both of you could manage wonderfully. Vernon even mentioned that he was sure he could manage 4 grandkids on his lap at one time. When we heard the news about the ultrasound, it seemed it could not be true. How could a God that has been so good to me do this to my grandchild? I struggled with "God's Will" and knowing that God is always in charge even though I may not know why. Then Meghan and I were so excited about Kyle's decision that we could find out if the baby would be a boy or girl, and we could give this child the name you had decided on a long time ago. So with Joel with us, Mary Ellis did his ultrasound and was almost certain that it was a boy. From that day we were able to call this new baby, Gabriel Dean Dingle. It seemed like the day would never get here when I would finally get to see him. The first time I saw him, I thought he looked just like an angel, and he reminded me of Joel when he was a newborn. There was such a sense of peace and excitement in the room that no one would understand unless they were there. I know that feelng was God with us. He helped us make that day such an exciting day to see Gabriel for the first time and then he helped us have peace as Gabriel went to heaven. When I watch Joel at my home he always wants to go up the steps even though he knows he is not supposed to or does he just not understand that we are just looking out for him. This is the same with God, he does things we are not sure why, but we have to believe that he has everything under control. One of my favorite movies is "Angels in the Outfield". Maybe that will be Gabe, helping Joel to catch the ball in baseball, sunk the basketball, run that touchdown, or give him wings to win the race. Or since he opened his eyes first for his Uncle Brandon and Brandon loves Pittsburg, maybe he can help their baseball team!!!As I celebrate by 50 great years this year and today I celebrate my 30 year wedding anniversary, I think of all of the blessings that God has given me. I have such a great family and so many friends and now he has given me an angel!! What else could I ask for except lots more grandchildren!Kyle and Meghan you have shown everyone through this website what faith is really about. Not just going to church every Sunday, preaching about God, reading the bible, but walking with him everyday by the way you live your lives. Gabriel Dean Dingle has touched more lives than we will ever know, but my hope and prayer is that everyone reading this website will want to make sure they are going to heaven so they can see our angel Gabriel!!All my love,Mom
Kyle & Meghan, what a beautiful website. Thank you for sharing your thoughts, emotions, and your pictures. It was great to be able to see Gabriel. My thoughts and prayers are still with you guys. Your faith and your strength is amazing.
Dear Kyle and Megan,Thank you for allowing us to be part of this journey with you.Our Life Group will continue to pray for you and your family.Your story is a testament. Our prayer is for you to feel all of our hope and love. We pray for strength, peace, and comfort.Love,Courtney Smallwoodand the life group
Meghan and Kyle, Your strength and courage are only surpassed by your love of our Lord and Saviour , Jesus Christ.

Our many thoughts and prayers will continue to be with your amazing family.Thank you for sharing your story. You have no idea how you have made such a difference in so many lives. Joel and Gabriel have some wonderful parents!
I just read Gabriel's birth story; thank you for sharing it. I am sure you met each day with a new set of mixed emotions. Your faith in God and the trust you have that everything has a purpose is uplifting. Gabriel Dean is lucky to have you as his mother. I wish your family lots of love and peace. Thank you for touching my life.Kristin
This is the most touching story that I have ever come to know. Your strength is amazing and your little boy is the most precious and the most beautiful Angel in Heaven.May Peace Find You All and May God and Gabriel Always Be With You In Every Step and Breath You Take.
Through the daughterof my friend, I was directed to your website and found it to be the most inspiring story I have read in many ofmy long years! Your Gabe is truly and angel. I am moved beyond words at your story and website and will pray for you and your families to heal and continue with your wonderful faith forever. Your faith is beautiful and a true testament to Jesus!
To the entire Dingle familyThank you for sharing your difficult story with us. Your faith in God is so inspiring. While you didn't have Gabe with you for long, his memories will be with you forever and he will always know how much he is loved. Our family will keep you in our thoughts.
Dear Hobby and Dingle Families,Our lives have been surely touched as you have poured out your hearts to all of us. There are no earthly words toadequately describe how thisjourney of yours will be used by God to reach so many. Thank you for so willingly sharing your lives with us.May God continue to pour out His love toyou in the days ahead, sustaining andstrengthening you. We love you!
Dear Meghan - What a beautiful testimony of love, faith, and trust in the power of God to carry you through what would otherwise have been an impossibly difficult time. You will probably never know (this side of heaven) how many lives are being touched and changed as people reach the story of your angel, Gabriel. God bless you! We will continue to keep you in our prayers.
Kyle & Meghan,Although you do not know me, I am the "rainbow" photographer, as well as a nurse. I heard about your story from Teresa Jordan.There are no words to express what your story has done to my heart! I am amazed at your strength, will power, and love. God does work in mysterious ways, as I can see you both know.I have to admit that I am very proud of the health care team that took such great care of you and your family during your hardest moments. This is one reason that I am so blessed on a daily basis, to help those in need, and just be there to offer any support that I can.I hope that you are doing well. The memories that you had with Gabe will last forever. He is such a blessing and an adorable child!You will remain in our thoughts and prayers! Your strength will continue to amaze me on a daily basis!God bless, Tia
What a beautiful service for your angel! It was such a wonderful tribute to Gabe. My prayers are with you as you go forward. You have both already shown so much faith and strength. I know God will continue to help you through this. God Bless
Meghan and Kyle, Your story about Gabriel is absolutely amazing - first, that your faith in our Heavenly Father gave you the strength to go through this entire pregnancy, birth and death with such love and devotion to family and God. Secondly, I am sure that we have no idea what an inspiration you and your trust in the power of God's will has given so many. Even though you are saddened by your recent loss of such a beautiful little angel, remember the great joy you had the moment you were able to see him and embrace him and this will give you the comfort in the days ahead. May God be with you now and always.
My heart literally aches right now for you and Kyle. I have read your entire website in tears. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Always treasure that special time you had with your precious little angel. God bless you and your family.
The service for Gabe was absolutely beautiful. The celebration of his life was amazing and also the number of lives your story and Gabe's life is touching is wonderful. Thanks so much for helping to remind so many of us that we need God in our lives to help us thorugh not only the good times but also the trials in our lives. So many of us try to carry the burdens of life by ourselves and it just does not work, so I thank you again for your faith.
We are current Lifehousers and saw the e mail about your story. We are truly sorry for your loss. Yes, there was an incredible rainbow that evening and we remember saying how we have never seen anything like it before. We will continue to pray for you and your family.
Kyle, Meghan and Joel, Thank you so much for sharing your story. Your family is beautiful, inside and out. Your strength and trust in God is inspiring to us and even though we don't know each other, you have touched our lives. What an honor, to be chosen to be Joel and Gabe's parents. Again, thank you for sharing your story- you are in our prayers... we saw the rainbows too (Reid Wallech's parents/family)
Meg, thank you so much from the bottom of my broken heart for sharing your story. My son was diagnosed with Potter's Syndrome this week and it has been the hardest week of my entire 23 years of life. Your story has helped me and my husband make the emotionally difficult decision to continue pregnancy and leave Tyler's path to the Lord. His fate has already been decided, so my job is to keep him safe as long as I can. You are truly an inspiration. Please continue to share your story.
Kyle & Megham:Our tears, our hearts and our love & prayers continue to be with you. Your journey, your inspiration, and your trials of love have and will touch many as God continues to hold you. Our prayers are with for God's continued blessisngs to be with you, and your Beloved Baby Angel.In God's Love Always...
Dear Meghan and Kyle, We've never met, but I have been following your journey since early summer. My heart aches for you and your families, but it also rejoices because your little boy has achieved in just a short time what most of us spend our entire lives trying to discover-- our own divine purpose. There is no doubt in my mind that you were chosen to be his parents for your deep,abiding faith and for your willingness to exhalt God's name throughout your difficult journey. Each day is but the blink of an eye to our Creator and little Gabe is now directly in his powerful,loving gaze. I pray that God will continue to work in your lives in such a way that you are able to further glorify His name and discover your own divine purpose. God bless you all and thank you for allowing me to be such a small part of your moving testimony.
hey guys, I hope all is well. With love, josh?
Kyle & Meghan,My thoughts and prayers are with both of you & your families. Your faith and love for Christ is a testimony to me and all of us! May His love and peace fill your hearts during this very difficult time. I can't be on here without crying, it's so beautiful. I thank our Lord for both of you.
Meghan and Kyle,I just wanted to l let you know that you and your family has been in my prayers over the past several months. Thank you for sharing Gabe's story... it was so moving and heartbreaking. He's so beautiful! I don't understand the 'why', but I can so clearly see God's fingerprints all over your life. Your faith has been an inspiration. In Him,Heather
The updates to this webpage are just wonderful. Thanks so much for posting more pictures of Gabriel. His little face is etched into my mind and my heart! Love you.
We have never met, but I became a friend of your dad while he worked at the YMCA. No one can imagine the heartache that you have and the Lord is the only one capable of carrying you at a time like this. I, too, have lost children, 1-boy and 2-girls, at birth and I'm glad that He is there to hold and comfort us. I pray that the Lord blesses you above and beyond.
I am so pleased to read the many heartwarming notes to you and Kyle. Thank you for sharing your story on this website and especially for sharing your joy and sadness in those final hours with little Gabe. I admire your strength and faith and pray it continues to sustain you in the days ahead.Much Love, Carol and Tom
Dearest Kyle, Megan, and Joel, You have touched my heart in so many way's. I thank you for loveing your Son Gabriel Dean so much that He was able to know your love for him. The pic. of Gabe with the angle wing's brought tear's to my eye's. You have been able to plan and place thing's in such an order after all the stress of the unknown was before you. I admire you Megan and Kyle so much for allowing all of us to be a part of your live's and for showing all of us what true love is about..not giving up or giving in. You both are 2 of the most kindest people I know by just listening to the word's you speak. There is such emotion and passion in them. I hope to see you all again someday and can't wait to meet Gabriel Dean Dingle one day in Heaven....Love you and your family so much. Julie "Monn" Dagenhart
Meg I am sitting visiting your website for the first time and I am so moved. I dont know exactly how to feel. My heart is breaking for you and Kyle to loose your son however the faith and love and complete trust that you have given too God is wonderfully amazing. I can not imagine going through what you have. You are truly a wonderful example for many. Your faith and love both in your marriage and with God is truly something that I greatly admire. I just want you to know that Gabe will be forever remembered in our family as well. His Birthday is the day before Kates. Much love and many prayers to you and your family.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your story. We can relate in some ways. We lost our second two years ago . . . not at full term, but without any notice in the second trimester. We also got to hold him and I remember the moment when we finally had to give his little body away. . . knowing that his spirit had long gone, but still holding on. We've since had another miscarriage at 12 weeks and are only 10 weeks along in yet another pregnancy. Through each, no matter how long they've been with us, they've touched our lives in a special way. Today we went for another check-up and I started crying when I heard a newborn cry because this was the week our third was due. Your story is a blessing of hope and perseverance. Thank you and may God bless each of you.
I'm a friend of Kris Vann. We were together last week and she told me about your son Gabe. Today I recieved the link in my FB message box to read the testimony to your son. Being a mother,,of a son...the only son I'll ever have. I am so moved by the strength you both have. I wept and my heart ached as I read every word and looked at every picture. Although he was with you a short time...He was loved more than any baby could ever ask for. Gabriel is in the arms of our savior Jesus Christ and is among the angels in heaven,,,,this I hope gives you peace.
Meg~ Thank you again. I can't tell you how much I appreciate that you continue to journal through this. Just know that you're helping me SO much if no one else (but I know you're helping many!). Every single day is such a journey, but I keep coming back here because this story reassures me that it can be done. I'm not looking forward to missing Tyler, I'm so scared. No mother should have to go through this. I wish I could be as much support to you and you've been to me.
Meg and Kyle, Kristen had kept me informed of your journey and I placed you on the prayer list at my church. You are so strong and courageous, and it is obvious that your faith in the Lord brought you through. Thank you for sharing your story and the pictures. He was truly a beautiful angel and he will be taken good care of with the angels in heaven. I will continue to pray for you and your family. May God bless and comfort you and your heart will be lifted up to him. We do not have to be alone...We need not suffer pain. Our angels come to comfort us time...and time...again. For last night an angel of the God to whom I belong and whom I serve stood by me. Acts 27:23
Dear Meghan and Kyle,Thank you for continuing to share your journey. I continue to pray for you both and reading your words helps me know how to pray more specifically for you. The photos you shared are so beautiful, as is your spirit. You can tell the Holy Spirit is reigning in your lives. May you continue to feel the love of our heavenly Father and His loving embrace. May the Lord replace your sadness with joy. And may the aching you feel lessen, but your precious memories remain. You have a beautiful family! God bless each of you.
Dear Meghan,You are an inspiration and I come here almost daily to check-in and see how you are doing and if there are any more pictures of your little angel posted. I am so glad that you are allowing yourself to go through the grieving process naturally and not pushing yourself. I hope Kyle is well, and has found his own special way to grieve the loss of his little angel. Take Care and God Bless you and your entire family. Love and Miss You,Wendy
Meghan, Your story helps so much. I'm 24 weeks pregnant and no one knows, specifically, what's wrong with our baby, but they have told us 100 percent chance he/she will not live. I have no amniotic fluid at all and the baby's kidneys are filled with cysts. We are also carrying to term and letting God decide when our baby dies. Your story helps to know what's coming and also it helps to know there are other people out there feeling this incredible pain and sorrow. Please keep sharing and updating. You will be in our prayers.
I want so badly to write something for you, especially for Gabe, but everytime I get to this point I am so overwhelmed with emotion, wiping the tears away, that there just aren't any words to express what my heart feels. With that said, I love you, I love Kyle for loving you, and I think of Gabe everyday. He has and continues to touch my life even though I was not fortunate enough to tell him so. With love on your good days...Hope on your "ok" days...And rainbows on your sad days...Alexis Packard
Meg you continue to be so amazing you are truly a great person and all your devotion and faith will one day be repaid when you get to hold your precious angel again. I love you and deeply admire you. Much love and many prayers Kristen
Meghan,I have to admit, I did the same thing with the blanket and I already knew it was GDD not GOD! He works in mysterious ways :) I look forward to reading your blogs, you give me so much to look forward to instead of dreading the day I deliver. I am so excited to meet my little guy. It's good to know that Tyler will be in good company with Gabe.My cousin's neighbor (in Florida) just got the same diagnosis and is carrying to term. I hope you don't mind that I give her your website to look over.
Still thinking of you and your family. You continue to be an inspiration to many people. God bless you all!! Heather
Meghan,I think about you and Gabe almost as much as I think about Tyler...you're always in my thoughts and prayers. Please email me if you need anything <3
Meg,Just thinking of you, Kyle, Joel and Gabe... I am so lucky to have someone like you be such an important part of my life... I love you and miss you. Just a reminder... I'm always here if you need me.<3, HannahP.S. I love the new backgrounds on the site as well! :)
I just finished reading and viewing your most beautiful and compelling story of unending love, endurance, sadness, hope, and faith everlasting. My prayers are for your family to receive courage, healing and comfort, and renewed faith every time you remember your son, Gabe. My heart goes out to you and your family.
Dear The Dingle Family, I'm a student of Mr. Dingle and when I heard about this website I wanted to know more about the sad but happy story of Gabe. Its a beautiful website and I will never forget him. My prayers are within your family and little Gabe in heaven. He's living and peace now and he will always be looking over you and your family. - Sarah Amalfitano
I work at DIS...it has taken me some time to be able to look at your entire website for it brought back a flood of memories of my son, Aaron who also had Potter's Syndrome and did not survive...hard to believe that he would be almost 22-years-old now. If it were not for our faith in God we would have never made it through....I was not my self for a year after his birth/passing. God blessed us with another son almost 2 years to the day of Aaron's birth..his name is Josiah. Each year on Aaron's birthday I buy a single yellow rose in memory of him for he is buried at a military cemetary north of Harrisburg, PA and it is difficult to make it up there.Thank you for sharing your Journey. Sincerely,Ginny
Dear Meg,I am so glad you are doing well, and allowing God's work to shine through you. You have touched so many others through your story and website. After I read the post from Kyle's student, I cried again, it was so touching. Love U!
Meg, I'm so glad to be able to see pictures of Gabriel's gravesite. We've been putting off ordering Kailee's because it's just been too hard. Gabriel's is so beautiful. I keep telling my husband that I want everyone to KNOW she was a baby. I like looking at Gabriel's because you know he was a baby. Carrie
I was searching fellow classmates when I came across your link on facebook. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss! I couldn't imagine losing my son. This website is awesome. My prayers are with you and your family.
Love the new look....Miss you and think of You, gabe, Joel and Kyle often!!
I have read your blog many times and pray for you each time God brings you to my mind. You have been used mightily in the midst of your loss of Gabe. You have shared so much of yourselves unselfishly and been an inspiration and example to many. You have been thankful for the time you had and have given God glory through your writings. Gabe is lucky to have you as parents and I'm sure is thanking God for the time HE was able to spend with YOU.Hugs and prayers.
Meghan,Kyle and family, My heart still aches when I follow your updates and see the strength it takes to cope with the loss of a child. You are a beautiful family and I hope that in some way, peace will fall upon all of you and the pain of your devastation will lighten. Sending prayers to the heavens above. Love, Heather and family
Meghan, you and Kyle have been in my prayers since last summer when I first heard about Gabe... Thank you for creating this web site as a tribute to Gabe's short life on earth. I wept as I looked at the photos and read your comments. I feel privledged to witness the very sacred time that you and your family spent together with Gabe. Wishing you and Kyle the peace that passes understanding...
Your website is absolutely beautiful, from the pictures to the wording, everything is wonderful and Gabriel, well he was just perfect.I am so sorry for you loss and all you and your family had to go through, but we always have God.Love & Prayers,Mandi (Labor of Love Mom)
Thinking of you more than you know... Love you all so much. :)
I'm really blessed to have just read through this website. Meghan thanks so much for being so open, honest, real, and sharing your heart and what you went through. I think this is an incredible story. I love your decisions, and am really proud of you guys. Love you,Karla
Hi Meghan and Kyle! It has been a while since I dared ventured to your website. Looking at sweet Gabriel continues to take my breath away. It is kind of like a sore that you go to great lengths not to touch to avoid the pain; if that is how I feel than I can only imagine how you must feel at times. But the strong and courageous hold their heads up high and conquer. And I am humbled and blessed to see you two standing strong in Christ in that way. Blown away really. Especially love that you thought to print his little hand and foot. Isn't it amazing how that brings him to life somehow. He wasn't just a thought or a memory...but he was HERE! Anyway, I just love you and your family. Your so beautiful to me.Love you all,Lisa
I've already annoyed the hell out of you today (and yesterday) but I can't get you out of my head! I hope you're having a better day than me...I'm just a wreck today! I am crying as I type...I just appreciate everything you have done for me...the blanket, the sweet words, always returning my emails when I know it was SO HARD for you to do so. You're such an incredible soul and you give me so much hope and renew my faith. My heart just breaks for you, Kyle and Joel.
Very touching tribute, speaks volumes about your relationship with Jesus Christ that you are using this experience for the betterment of His kingdom. Thanks for sharing and God bless!
Hi, I grew up with Kyle and my cousin is in your support group. I was at the hospital with her and from going through her experience, my heart goes out to you and your family for having to experience such a loss as it was the most heartbreaking time in my life to watch her go through that. May god continue to give you strength and know that you are thought of. My love and prayers to all of you, Jessica
Your story has humbled me so greatly and brought me to tears in a bittersweet way. You are such a wonderful witness to others. Thank you for sharing your courage with us!
Thank you for sharing your story. I too lost a child, my daughter in 2008 born at 26 weeks and living only 13 days. I got HELLP Syndrome. The entire experience as hard as it was made my marriage and family so much stronger than I ever thought was possible. Good luck to you and your family.
Happy birthday, Gabe. You've touched more lives than me or your mommy can count...and that's an amazing thing. I hate that your mommy lost you, and I hate that I lost my Tyler...but without either of your precious lives, her and I would have never met either. You will always be remembered and always dearly missed by more than just your immediate family. As long as I remember Tyler's birthday, I'll remember yours as well. (And in case you were wondering, I don't plan on forgetting his anytime soon.) As crazy as it came about, you're a part of my life now, too...not just a memory.Take care of Tyler, too. If he's anything like his mom, he gets lost and confused pretty easily. :)
God has been laying you both on my heart a lot this month. I know it is a time when hearts must feel extra tender and heavy. I'm praying that the Lord continue to comfort you, bringing His peace and joy into your lives. Your precious angel Gabe is forever remembered and continues to touch the hearts of many. Blessings to you and your family.
I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. My first two babies were born still in my third trimester due to a undiagnosed blood clotting disorder. There is no pain greater than losing a child. Just know that he is an angel and watching over you everyday. There is a support group that has helped me so much over the years. It is called SHARE. If you look up The NAtional Share Office you should find it. They are based out of St. Louis but have chambers through out the country. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
I have never met you but I am friends with Brittany and I can tell you I see your pictures of your beautiful baby and feel the same weight on my heart as I do for Britt...I only hope that weight I feel is taking that much off of your sadness.... I will pray for comfort and strength to you, all the other mommies, daddies and families going through this....you show strength I did not think was possible....But with God, great support and Love all things are possible....
Hi, I'm a friend of Brittany's and I just wanted to say that I think what you and Brittany did is one of the bravest things I've ever heard. You both gave your little ones the best life you could and I think God will bless you for that.
My heart aches for you and your family over your loss of Gabe. I can't imagine the pain you feel. You mom's of Potter's babies are so incredibly inspirtional. With all things, there is God, and with you now and always, He is present. Praying for you and your family.
You and your husband are two very strong people, and that will live on with you forever. You don't know me, but I know your story will stay with me forever. God will be with you always, and so will your darling baby boy. Brittany posted your link on facebook, so I had to come post my support to you and your family. Gabe is a beautiful angel! God bless and my prayers are with you and your family!
Meghan,Although I've never met you, I recently read your story (a friend posted Gabe's walk on their facebook page...) and was so touched. I am so moved by how you and your family have chosen to honor God through your loss. Tomorrow I am supposed to sing at my church (Tri-State Fellowship). After reading your story, I came upon the song "Held" by Natalie Grant, which makes me think of your Gabe. I will be thinking of your family and praying for you tomorrow when I sing this. Just wanted to know that God has touched my heart through your story.Shonelle Strausbaugh
It was so nice officially meeting you today and hanging out at Convoy of Hope! I just read your entire web site, and as you know it is amazingly beautiful. You and your husband are inspirational, and I truly admire your love for the Lord and your desire to do His will. You have a beautiful family, and your son Gabe was so precious. You will see him again so very soon. I have a baby brother in Heaven too, and I know that God is so excited to call those little angels His own! I will be praying for you and I wish you the very best. You are definitely changing lives. I am sitting here crying my eyes out! haha I hope I get the chance to get to know you better!
Love the new layout, Meg :)
I have not experienced the loss of a child and could not possibly know what your family has been through. But I commend you for sharing your emotions, thoughts and uplifting words with others. I am so happy that you did have that precious two hours with your son to let him know how much he is loved on this Earth before he was carried into Heaven. I bet he can't wait to see you either. Good Luck in your journey.
Kyle and Meghan, Congratulations! I just heard you were pregnant again.I will be praying for you and your rainbow baby.
Kyle and Meghan congratulations on your daughter. She is so precious. I know how you feel with losing a child with potter syndrome, I had lost my son 21 years ago this past January. It has gotten easier, I do still miss him terribly. I do know one day I will be with him in Heaven. May God be with you and your family.
I believe with all my heart that GOD placed you in my life for a reason.. Your story of Gabe is amazing.. On 08/20/09 Chance blessed our lives in one day came and left and I know our two angels are watching down on us everyday.. One day would love to have the opportunity for our families to meet!
