When someone becomes a parent, they should never have to worry about potentially burying that child. Unfortunately, we live in a broken world and that’s the heavy reality, Marquise Goodwin dealt with Sunday.

Goodwin, a wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers scored a 83 yard touchdown Sunday, and couldn’t hold the pain in any longer. He fell to his knees, not able to contain the emotion any longer. He later revealed on his Instagram, that he and his wife had lost their prematurely born son in the early hours before the game that day.

“Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan,”

He also posted a photo of him and son, in one of their only too brief moments.

His full caption reads,

I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please Pray for the Goodwin family.

It’s amazing and beautiful to see that even though the Goodwin’s baby was born prematurely, he sought comfort by gripping the finger of his daddy.

Losing a child is one of the toughest things in life. Please pray for the Goodwin family as they walk through this tragic event.
