Shannon and John also have four babies who were born sleeping far too soon. Their babies were born at 13 wks (Jeremiah), 8 weeks (Angel Baby Sasseville), 15 weeks (Sarah Jane. She is Abby’s Identical twin sister), and they also lost a precious baby at 5 weeks gestation. She honors their angel babies with the sacred work we do with Sufficient Grace Ministries.
