I am sorry for your loss. I can't even imagine what you have had to go through.

I don't think anyone can really answer your question about whether your second baby has a chance of the same defects. This is something you really need to talk to your doctor about. It depends on what the cause of the defects were in your other baby - whether it was genetic or not, whether it was to do with development (eg. was he born early?). There are so many variables here that talking to the doctor is probably the best option for accurate information.
