Haley said that children with anencephaly deserve just as much unconditional love as any other baby. He also said it's been incredible to read all of the stories they receive from couples who have gone through the same struggles.

"We are so happy to see the positive impact that little Shane has had on so many people across the world," Haley said. "More importantly — and Jenna and I talk about this often — it has raised awareness for anencephaly worldwide."

"There are so many genuinely good and kind hearted people in this world," Haley said. "But in the midst of Shane's terminal condition, we have been overwhelmed by all of the amazing people who have shown their support and offered prayer."
