Dear Baby Maverick,

I'm writing to let you know that not much has changed down here on earth. Your father and I have been waiting for the results from your autopsy. It is assumed that the cause of your problems is due to an unknown syndrome. An unknown cause leads me to be more confused at this point. We are sad because we will never know what caused your problems. We should be happy because this conclusion leads the doctors to believe this will not happen again to another baby. I'm confused mainly on how to move on at this point. Our waiting is over. Your due date is fast approaching. We will be celebrating your brother's third birthday the day before your due date. Those two days will be bitter sweet! When we received your autopsy results today, I became extremely nervous. I couldn't get the envelope open fast enough! Although all of the medical wording made it hard to read, we understood it perfectly. Now I need to bring a copy to two different doctors offices that are interested in the conclusion. You have stumped all of the doctors, Maverick and your mom and dad too! I can't seem to get you out of my head, sweet boy. I keep picturing your sweet face. I will write you again on your due date... I love you!

Love Always, Mom
