Jon Meacham shared photographs of his two daughters, "This is Leslie, the first girl that passed away and she was 9 months old," he explained. Meacham brought out another picture, "That was our legally adopted daughter Josephine, that's when she was only 3 months old." Two baby girls who would have called Louisville home. Two girls who would have called Jon Meacham and his wife Bethany Meacham mom and dad and two girls who would have called Jonah and Isaac their brothers. But both girls died in the Democratic Republic of Congo after the Meachams began the adoption process in January of 2011.
