We would like to thank everyone for your contributions and support during this time of loss. Caden was our Angel sent from God and we are honored that God chose us to be his parents. Caden will continue to live in our hearts with every smile and kiss given. This is a journey that does not end here. God sent Caden for a purpose and as a Blessing. It is now up to us, his children, to see the Blessing of Caden's life. Caden showed great courage, strength, love, joy and contentment. In his short life he touched so many and exuded an enormous amount of LOVE! That's it LOVE and TRUST God in everything........through everything! While the storm is tumultuous, on the other side it shall be Glorious! God promises to help us forget all of our hardships and prosper us in the middle of our sorrow (Genesis 41:50-52) Manasseh (meaning Forget) and Ephraim (meaning double prosperity).

We will continue to share Caden's story with others and lift up Jesus' name giving him all Glory even in the midst of our sorrow. We miss our son dearly but know that he is with our Heavenly Father blowing kisses to us every minute of the day.

Our fundraising continues as we have yet to meet our goal so please share the word and continue to be a blessing.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Caden has been pretty stable since his surgery and procedure earlier this month. He is such a strong little boy. Santa came to visit the children in the hospital which made the holidays a bit more jolly. The last procedure revealed that Caden has quite a journey ahead of him. His lungs need more time to heal and his heart surgery will come as the lungs heal. All that being said, Caden continues to bring us great joy! Please continue to keep him in your prayers.

May God Bless you and your families!

My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God’s Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. And how bold and free we then become in his presence, freely asking according to his will, sure that he’s listening. And if we’re confident that he’s listening, we know that what we’ve asked for is as good as ours. (1 John 5:13-15 MSG)

Our 2yr old son, Caden, is our miracle baby. The doctors stated that I would likely not conceive but after much prayer God Blessed us with an absolute Angel! Caden was born with Down Syndrome in addition to heart disease (Tetralogy Fallot) in August 2011. He underwent his first two heart surgeries at 11 months old. However, after six months Caden developed lung disease and his heart began to fail. Caden has been hospitalized and critically ill most of 2013 and is now at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He is currently being treated for his lungs and awaiting a third open heart surgery. As one may imagine the cost of caring for a disabled child is high and although we have an excellent insurance plan, many expenses incurred during this process are not covered by insurance. We believe God for Caden's Miracle and many of you have asked how you may help. Our greatest need is assistance with raising funds for the expenses during this journey. We are humbled by the love and generosity of those that have asked to help and any donation, small or large, is a Blessing for our Almighty God!

Your thoughts and prayers for Caden and our family are appreciated. God's love continues to shower upon us.

Even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve.
—Mark 10:45
