Hi my name is RaeLee Franken. I called this morning to share my story. I completely lost it and wasn’t able to say everything I wanted to.

January 4th I went in for a routine doctors appointment. I was 29 weeks pregnant. This is our first baby and we were so excited to be having a son. Kolter is the first grandbaby and great grandbaby on both sides of the family. Everyone was so excited to be having another baby in the family. At my doctors appointment our doctor couldn’t find his heartbeat. January 3rd around 11:00am our beautiful son was announced dead due to torsion of the umbilical cord. We delivered him January 4th at 10:10am. He was a beautiful 2 pounds 8ouces 16in long baby boy. Saying hello and goodbye all at once was so so hard.

Through the loss of my son my faith has grown in so many ways. I have been able to help 5 babies by donating my milk. And I have been able to counsel 2 of my friends who are going through similar situations. Without my faith I don’t know how I could ever get through this. Before Losing Kolter I used to flip through all the stations on the radio just looking for music. Now all I listen to is 96.5. I never change it. I want to thank 96.5 for being there to listen to on my worst of days and helping me make it through this rough path in life. I also want to thank you for taking the time to pray with me this morning. It means so much!
