Drake was born on February 1, 2006 and passed away February 5, 2006.
He was a Beautiful little Prince. He weighed 3 lbs 12 oz and was 14.5 inches long at birth.
Drake had a type of genetic defect known as microcephalic osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism this means Drake's brain didn't develop past that of a 10-15 week old fetus. While Drake's body would have been able to live Drake's brain wasn't developed enough to keep his lungs working.
A Poem Written for Drake:
Mommy, I came to Jesus today.
He sent an angel who flew me away.
While I lay sleeping, he whispered to me;
Come little Drake, He's waiting for thee.
There was no pain Mommy, there was no fear.
Just the presence of Jesus, close and so near.
And now you hardly recognize me,
I've been given a perfect body now.
My arms are so strong, my legs are so straight,
I run fast and jump, and mommy it's great.
I played all the day and I sat on Christ's lap.
And he told me here I won't have to take naps!
But Mommy dear Mommy, I stopped playing awhile
For in the midst of my joy, I heard you cry.
So I'm sending this message to say
I'm just fine Mommy, I'm really okay.
When on this earth I could not speak,
So my words of love I had to keep.
But I was given a voice today
And praise the Lord is all I can say,
So Mommy sweet Mommy
Don't cry anymore
This is the day I've been waiting for.
