My Son Michael’s Family Tree

Michael J Baisden & Son, Michael Jaye Baisden, II

Mikey was named after his father. I have so many photos of them together it is insane. I followed them around when Mikey was little and captured every single moment of them because somehow in my head from the very start I knew that they would not have enough time together.

I love all those photos now and especially love all of the scrapbook pages of them together.

(This photo is from when he came home from the hospital and a few days later his step-sister, Leann came to see him.)

Gone, Not Forgotten

Anna Rose Wellman

There are not a lot of photos of Ann with Mikey. He was very new when she passed away. This photo makes me happy because it was the first time she had ever seen Mikey. We took him down to Lenore, West Virginia, where they lived and I snapped this photo of her holding him and she was gone less than a month later.

Mikey's Baisden Grandparents

Mikey didn't get blessed with lots of grandparents. Ann died shortly after Mikey was born, Earnest was already gone when he was born. So, Mikey had no grandparents on his dads side of the family.
