(October 9, 2014) – His stay on Earth was a brief one that touched thousands upon thousands of lives.

Jenna and Dan Haley created a bucket list for their unborn child expected to have a brief life.

They officially welcomed baby Shane Michael to the world:

Yesterday, the family announced on their “Prayers for Shane”  Facebook page that Jenna was in labor.

And according to the Facebook page, he was born around 3 a.m. The family posted later Thursday that baby Shane passed away:

Jenna was just 13 weeks pregnant when doctors told her that her unborn son was diagnosed with anencephaly, a condition that causes babies to be born without parts of the brain and skull. Many newborns with the condition die soon after birth.

The couple made headlines when they decided to put together a bucket list for Shane with lots of adventures to some of their favorite childhood places while he was still inside his mother’s womb.
