"Our angel baby Johnathan turns 3 in heaven today. After three years you'd think it wouldn't hurt as much. Time has numbed some of the pain, but anyone who assumes it can go away entirely must not know what it's like to deliver your lifeless son & hold him in your arms knowing your body failed him and didn't nurture & protect him to his due date," Jamie captioned several very personal photos.
"I'll never forget meeting my first born baby. When I looked down to see him so tiny in my arms I couldn't help but notice how bruised & beaten up he looked from an early delivery."
Jamie shared a photo of Doug and herself holding Johnathan in the hospital. She followed that up with an imprint of the baby's tiny feet and some ultrasound photos taken during the pregnancy.
"As a mommy all you want to do is protect your baby and make sure they're happy and loved, but I will never get the chance to soothe my sweet Johnathan's cry by rocking him to sleep at night, or kiss his boo-boos 'all better', or cuddle up to him when he sees a monster under the bed," Jamie continued in her post.
"I'll never get to be a 'normal' mommy for him. The only mommy I can be is one who honors him, remembers him, and continues to *love* him from earth, until we meet again."
"There's such a stigma associated with loss so I won't ask anyone who feels like I should 'be over it' to join me in honoring him. If no one else wants to say Johnathan's name, look at his photos, or remember him with me that's ok. But please, let ME say his name, share his photos & continue to keep his memory alive. This is the only way I can be his mommy," Jamie wrote in her post.
"His life may have been short, but he existed & I cant/wont just forget him and 'move on.' Although we can't hold him on earth, I can still *feel* him with me & he *matters* to me & his daddy. If you're among the 1 in 4, the 'club' none of us want to be in, I want you to know you're not alone."

Jamie concluded, "Losing your baby -- at any stage of pregnancy -- is one of the worst pains to have to endure and SO many just don't understand, but I'm here for you mama. You go ahead & love and honor your baby however you want. Don't let the judgement of others stop you. I'm sending you ALL MY LOVE, mama. #1in4 #miscarriage #pregnancyloss #infantloss #awareness #miscarriageawareness #pregnancyandinfantlossawareness #miscarriagesupport #iam1in4 #ihadamiscarriage."
Earlier this week, Jamie celebrated the Week 18 mark of her current pregnancy by acknowledging Johnathan's passing had left her anxious as her current pregnancy reached the Week 17 mark.
"As much as I try to stay relaxed during week 17, the loss of our first baby boy always brings out so much anxiety. And I know it's ridiculous bc I've had zero issues with this pregnancy, but it's like I can't put enough prayers & positive vibes out there to keep the fears away," Jamie captioned a photo of her baby bump.
"We never thought we'd lose Johnathan... I never made it to week 18 with him. BUT I HAVE WITH THIS RAINBOW BABY BOY and all our worries were wiped away when we got to see our little guy on the ultrasound bouncing around so happy and content inside me."
She added, "And for the very first time we got to see our sweet rainbow baby's FACE... I kinda think he looks like @doughehner and what @henleygracehehner looked like when she was a newborn! THIS PREGNANCY IS BEGINNING TO FEEL 'REAL' NOW! I finally feel like I can relax. We made it to week 18 and ALL IS WELL! *SO THANKFUL*."
