The parents of a set of triplets who died just four hours their birth have released a precious video that is making the rounds on social media outlets.

Triplets Bernadette Mae, Adam Joseph and Christine Victoria born Thursday, November 15, 2012 to parents Jason and Marie Taylor. Jason and Marie held them in their arms for four hours until they died.

Friend Lou Iacobelli wrote last month about what happened to the couple and their babies.

This is a true story about friends of ours. It’s a story of life, love, loss and God. It’s about Jason and Marie Taylor who got married just last year, and they were happily expecting triplets in early 2013. But it wasn’t to be. The babies were born prematurely. They lived for about four hours and then left this world. The parents baptized them and welcomed their birth. They also continue to suffer deeply with the pain and hurt of losing three little, innocent, beautiful lives.

The couple decided to share the joy and the sorrow of this sad event by creating a video and writing a song. It’s titled, “Footsteps: In Memory of Our Triplets”. Jason and Marie wanted to recognize these three precious little lives in spite of the fact that they were on earth for only a very brief time. The couple wished to pay tribute to their three innocent souls, Adam, Christine and Bernadette, who are now surely in heaven praying for the parents. Dear Jason and Marie, we too share in your great loss, but also in the powerful and wonderful mystery and gift of life that God gives us. Life is sacred. We have all been blessed with their presence among us. Our prayers and thoughts are with you both and your families.

Eternal rest grant to Bernadette, Adam and Christine, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May their souls through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.



Jason and Marie preview their precious video this way:

This video is a tribute in memory of our triplets Bernadette, Adam and Christine. (conceived naturally a month after we got married) Our babies were born prematurely at 22 weeks gestation. They lived for about 4 hours before passing away in our arms.

The music in this video is an original song we wrote and recorded for our babies.
