Hogan Sayer Dominy

Hogan Sayer Dominy
4/2/2010 - 4/18/2010

Dear Friends,

Hogan fought an amazing fight for the past two weeks. He honored God with every breath he took and changed our lives forever. He passed away early this morning in our arms. Our hearts are heavy with love for him. We will continue to focus on the point and thank God for allowing us this special time. He was and is a miracle. Thank you all for loving on us and him. Hogan was God's little warrior with a huge heart. He has no problems now. He has a new body. We would love your continued prayers. We love all of you for joining Hogan on his journey. I could tell how bright his eyes got when I would tell him about the messages that were sent to him. Thank God for his little life and the impact that he made on this world.

In His Love,


  1. My heart is heavy for you too! Brian and I will continue to lift you in prayers. Hogan was a miracle on this Earth and is now completely healed in Heaven. I hope that he and Madeline have already met and are best buddies. Love to you and Angie. We are here when you need us.

    Mandy and Brian Hopkins

  2. Dear Angie and Kip and family ....
    I woke up thinking of Hogan .... last night I prayed hard for you all, and for Hogan, that he would not be afraid ... really, can anyone be afraid when you lie in the arms of Jesus? No. Hogan can now SEE and hear the things we have only DREAMED of! Praise be to our God for preparing HEAVEN for our sweet loved ones.

    As you rejoice, as you grieve, as you weep, as you laugh, as you pray .... remember that we are praying for you, and thinking of you often. I am amazed by Hogan's life and by YOUR LIVES with Hogan. You brought praise to God in every turn of Hogan's life....through this blog. THANK YOU. I am thankful for the Kip Dominy family, and to "know" Hogan. :)

    From Isaiah ... some of my very favorite verses -
    ISAIAH 61: 1-3
    "The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
    because the Lord has anointed Me
    to preach good tidings to the poor;
    He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,
    to proclaim liberty to the captives,
    and the opening of the prison
    to those who are bound;
    to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
    and the day of vengeance of our God;
    to comfort all who mourn,
    to console those who mourn in Zion,
    to give them beauty for ashes,
    the oil of joy for mourning,
    the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
    that they may be called trees of righteousness,
    the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified."

    That HE may be glorified ... Hogan was a darling 3 lbs, with one ear and a very big heart with Trisomy 18. That HE may be glorified, Hogan entered into the mansions of the Lord this morning, and out of this land. That HE may be glorified ... Hogan lived for two amazing weeks.

    Let all this pour over your souls as you go about today.
    With much love ....

  3. Thinking of your family today. Will continue to pray for all of you. Your Hogan was a precious gift from God. Thank you for sharing him with us.

  4. We will be praying for your family. We got a call that my husband's stepfather had died earlier this morning. He was 101 years old. But in two weeks time I know that Hogan could not have gotten any more love than he had. And I will always rememember his little eyes. Thanks for sharing your story. It meant so much to me and many,many more. We know he is at peace in a beautiful place.

  5. My heart is heavy this morning, but Hogan is home with Jesus and there is so much joy in Heaven and I hope that this comforts your family in the days and weeks to come. Hogan taught us love and determination in the short time he was here, and his legacy will live on through that. I will continue to pray for your sweet, sweet family!

  6. I have had the joy of praying for your little Hogan and his miraculous life. Thank you for sharing your journey and We will be praying for your hearts and minds in the days and months ahead, May God fill you with indescribable peace and comfort you both like He never has before.

    much love,
    The Buck Family Atlanta GA

  7. I don't even know what to say, other then Hogan is now a sweet little Angel in heaven like he was on earth. I woke up this morning and the first I did like always was log onto your blog to check on Hogan and when I saw your dates below Angie and Hogan's picture I knew the sweet little Angel has left us. I will continue to keep you and your family in my prayers and wish you a peaceful healing.

  8. I've been following Hogan and your family's journey through this beautiful blog. I can't imagine how yall are feeling today. My heart goes out to you all. Hogan changed a lot of lives. Thank you for sharing his life. May your faith continue to be strong and not waiver. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  9. So sorry to hear of Hogan's passing. Glory to God for the two weeks you had with him- what a miracle! I will continue to pray for healing for your family. Thank you for sharing your journey with us.

  10. I've been praying for your family since I learned of your blog right before Hogan was born and will definitely continue to do so. I pray God's peace and comfort covers your family completely.

  11. Your Mom called this morn to let me know that Hogan had gone to be with his Heaveanly Father . You all are in my prayers. He fought a good battle was a great little warrior and will be in my heart forever. God will continue to use him so his mission is not over. Can't wait to meet him one day and tell him how he touched my life and the love I had for him from the pictures and as I followed his journey each day. Gods peace be with you and I love you. Lynette

  12. We heard the news at church this morning, and we said a prayer for all of your family in our Sunday school class this morning-So sad for your family, but I do find comfort in knowing that he is hearing heavenly lullabies now-God will watch over him and keep him until you are all reunited one day-thank you for sharing Hogan with all of us-We will continue to keep you in our prayers
    Much love, Dana

  13. I was sorry to hear of Hogan's passing this morning, but we all know that he is no longer having to fight. Thank you so much for sharing him and his woderful story with all of us. We love the Dominy Family. Our prayers will continue to go up for your family in the coming days. He was a little angel on Earth and now he is a little angel in Heaven.

  14. Oh, Kip & Angie, my heart goes out to you, I'm so sorry!! I will miss hearing about Hogan's life here on earth, but what a hope we have that we will be with him one day in heaven for all eternity!! I can't wait to meet him there!! Please know that you all will continue to be in our prayers!! Praying that God's peace and comfort sustain you!!

  15. Kip, Angie & Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Heaven has gained a special little angel. I can't imagine the heartache you are going through but know that you are all loved so much and many prayers are being said for you. Thank you for touching my life with Hogan's Story. God will give you strength beyond what you ever thought possible. Here is a little poem that I had read before when I had to do some printing for a family that had lost a child. You may have already read it but I thought it was worth posting...


    A meeting was held quite far from earth.
    "It's time again for another birth,"
    Said the Angels to the Lord above,
    "This special child will need much love.

    His progress may seem very slow
    Accomplishments he may not show
    And he'll require extra care
    From the folks he meets way down there.

    He may not run or laugh or play
    His thoughts may seem quite far away
    In many ways he won't adapt,
    And he'll be known as handicapped.

    So let's be careful where he's sent
    We want his life to be content.
    Please, Lord, find the parents who
    Will do a special job for You.

    They will not realize right away
    The leading role they're asked to play
    But with this child sent from above
    Comes stronger faith and richer love.

    And soon they'll know the privilege given
    In caring for this gift from Heaven
    Their precious charge, so meek and mild
    Is Heaven's very special child."

  16. I do not know where to start. I am a different person because of your little hero, Hogan Dominy!!!! He was the most amazing little boy. Kip and Angie, I can not say that I know you feel because I have no idea. My heart is heavy and Katie and Heather are sad for you too. One the bright side, Hogan is not sick or suffering. He is in Heaven waiting on yall now. Treasure the short time that you had. I love you all and I am praying for each of you. Hogan is looking down from Heaven saying, God loves me and he is taking good care of me. That should give you some more suffering and not more pain. God is so good.
    I love you all,

  17. Heaven has one more angel today. I know that Hogan is sitting in Jesus' lap with no pain or fear. Know that you will see him again and that he will always watch over your family until then. Thank you for letting us follow your journey. We will miss Hogan's sweet, peaceful little face that we checked on each morning and night. My son- 4 yrs old- prayed last night "I pray for the little baby that is going to get to go to Heaven." He is right, Hogan got to go to Heaven early and experience all the joys of Jesus. We will continue to pray for your family and keep you on our prayer list at church. Laura

  18. May your faith in our amazing Lord carry you through this tough bump in the road. Always remember the amzing things Hogan did while he was on this earth and that one day you all will be together again in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Rest in peace sweet Hogan.

  19. Thank you so much for sharing Hogan with us! What a challenge he, and you through sharing your journey with him, have given us to live a life that glorifies God even through our struggles. We will continue to pray for your family in the days ahead. May God continue to receive the glory through Hogan's life (and yours my dear sister and brother in Christ).
    Thankful for the sure hope that we have in Christ!
    In His Grace,

  20. Angie and Kip, Our hearts are breaking and rejoicing with you today. Our Sunday morning message reminded Jens and I of how we are ALL spirtual beings having a temporary human experience. Hogan's 15 day journey had a larger impact spiritually than most of us will leave from our lifetime. What a miracle God has shared you (and us) through Hogan. A love beyond any words. A spiritual impact beyond our imaginations. Today, Hogan sits in the lap of Jesus, fully whole and completed. As he crawled into His lap, he heard His Father saying "WELL DONE HOGAN!"
    God is a God who always gives more... He gives beyond measure. His grace is and will be sufficient.... but it will take time to see it more clearly. We stand in the gap for you today, lifting you to the Father for the Joy and Peace that only He can give. God chose YOU to be Hogan's parents... He knew you would trust Him. And you have. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your journey. So much love and prayers, Cindy and Jens

  21. Rejoicing with you through the tears. A life well lived, a life well loved.

  22. Angie and Kip, I sent you a message in your facebook inbox. I am surrounding you all in prayers and love tonight. My heart aches for you.

    Precious Hogan, what a blessing to your mama and daddy and all of us. We will miss you. Watch over us all. Love, Abbie Holbrook

  23. Angie and Kip,
    I just can't bear to take my prayer band off so now I will pray for the two of you. As a mother I can't even begin to imagine what you are going through. You both are an inspiration to all of us! Thank you for sharing your sweet son with us. I feel honored to have meet have you.

  24. Our hearts are broken with yours. We are lifting you all up in prayer. God Bless the little ones.
    Kathy and Dave Asbery

  25. Praise God for the life of Hogan Dominy! Hogan has been and will continue to be an inspiration to so many. He has spread the word of God and touched more lives in two weeks than most of us will do in fifty years. What a blessing it was to me and my family to be able to "know" him! I can't wait to meet him in heaven and tell him what an impact he had on my life. Thank you Kip and Angie for sharing your life with me. My heart is heavy for the loss you are now faced with. You will continue to be in my prayers. Hold tight to your special memories with him here on Earth and know that you will hold that precious baby again one day!
    Morgan Barry

  26. Praying for you...thank you for sharing Hogan with us. So glad that we Christians can grieve with hope...we will all be re-united again one day! So sorry for your loss; there are no adequate words.

  27. Kip & Family- On my way to church this morning I was thinking of Hogan & sang a song for him that was sung at my first husband's funeral 5 years ago. I just wanted to share the lyrics because they just seem so fitting. Praying for all of you & that Noah & Lily will be able to understand how brave & courageous their little brother was.

    WITH HOPE- Steven Curtis Chapman

    This is not at all how
    We thought it was supposed to be
    We had so many plans for you
    We had so many dreams
    And now you've gone away
    And left us with the memories of your smile
    And nothing we can say
    And nothing we can do
    Can take away the pain
    The pain of losing you, but ...

    We can cry with hope
    We can say goodbye with hope
    'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
    And we can grieve with hope
    'Cause we believe with hope
    (There's a place by God's grace)
    There's a place where we'll see your face again
    We'll see your face again

    And never have I known
    Anything so hard to understand
    And never have I questioned more
    The wisdom of God's plan
    But through the cloud of tears
    I see the Father's smile and say well done
    And I imagine you
    Where you wanted most to be
    Seeing all your dreams come true
    'Cause now you're home
    And now you're free, and ...

    We have this hope as an anchor
    'Cause we believe that everything
    God promised us is true, so ...

    So we can cry with hope
    And say goodbye with hope

    We wait with hope
    And we ache with hope
    We hold on with hope
    We let go with hope

    All our love & prayers-

    Michelle (Peacock), Mike, & Will O'Rourke

  28. I just watched the video. So beautiful...
    Susannah and I said a prayer for all of you tonight. Love, Abbie H.

  29. Praying for you all! Thank you for sharing your journey with us. Although Hogan had a short life, he had a HUGE impact on many lives. We pray you feel your Heavenly Father's loving arms around you during this time, the same arms that hold your precious Hogan now. Love to you all,
    Jim and Christy Pierce

  30. I do not know you but we know some of the same people and I found your story through them. I pray for peace for you family. I wrote a little blogpost on my own blog asking for extra prayers for you guys. Hold fast to you faith!

  31. Your precious boy knows how immensely and completely he is loved by his mummy and daddy, and he loves you right back. :)
    I thank God that even though you are feeling pain that I cannot fathom, you can hold on to the hope of a perfect reunion with gorgeous Hogan on that glorious day. I hope this brings you much comfort as you miss your baby boy.
    I will keep praying for you, that God will carry you all through this pain. I am so thankful you have a wonderful family.
    Your little Hogan's life brought and will continue to bring glory to our Lord.

    Come, Lord Jesus, come!

    In Him,
    Sarah, from Sydney, Aus.

  32. Continuing in prayer for you and your precious family. Thank you for your willingness to share your family's special journey with us. What a blessing your posts have been and how God has used the life of your baby boy through this. The song by Steven Curtis Chapman came to mind when I read your post about Hogan's homegoing. Heaven is The Place of a Little Girl... you and he have blessed so many through the loss of your babies. God Bless You and continue to comfort you and your family.

  33. Kip, We just got back home from our trip and I wanted to check in on you guys. I'm so sorry for your loss and we have been praying for you guys. Thank you for letting us pray for you guys and updating so much over the past few months! Hogan is such an inspiration to so many and you and Angie are as well! This video brought tears to my eyes ... so beautiful!

    Our prayers are still with you!

  34. Dear Kip and Dominy Family

    I came across your story researching after GOP Candidate Rick Santorum's daughter has been on the news. Praise the Lord for Hogan's life and his impact on so many people. Thank you for sharing you story so that we may learn. You are helping families heal who have also suffered this loss. I'm sure a day doesn't pass by that you think about your little boy. I pray for your comfort and peace and may you and your family continue to do great things. In Jesus name.
