We love and miss him so.

Please light a memorial candle
 in memory of James.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved baby boy, James Daniel Saavedra.  James was born at 23 weeks of pregnancy following the premature rupture of membranes caused by an amniocentesis at 17 weeks of pregnancy.  With little-to-no amniotic fluid, he fought for six weeks. James was born in Riverside, California on July 18, 2005, weighing 1 lb, 4 oz and measuring 11 inches.  Baby James spent 19 loving minutes in our arms and flew to heaven on July 18, 2005.  He will always be our baby.

On August 2, 2006, our family welcomed - with arms wide open - Jenna Elizabeth.  Jenna weighed 9lbs, 3oz and was 20 inches long.  We know that James picked this precious baby girl and watches over his sister.  We see James every time we look at her and we know he is with us still.

There is a special Angel in Heaven
that is a part of me.
It is not where I wanted him
but where God wanted him to be.

he was here but just a moment
like a night time shooting star.
And though he is in Heaven
he isn't very far.

So I send this special message
to the Heavens up above.
Please take care of my Angel
and send him all my love.

For This Child I Prayed.......1 Samuel 1:27
