Kade's Angel

For Kade,

This fundraiser was set up by the people who love a very special baby boy and his mommy, Ashanti.

Ashanti grew from a quiet (yes quiet) cheerleader to an army soldier and finally blossomed when she became a mother. She was on a road to self discovery and found her true calling after not one, but two cross-country moves. During her second move, back home, she was carrying precious cargo. A baby boy that would forever change her life. A baby boy named Kade.

Each day she anticipated her child's coming into this world with a growing excitement she just couldn't help but share with all. And on October 23, the day she discovered what she was created to do, the day she understood what true unconditional love was, a beautiful son was born to her. This was the day she was able to hold pure joy and love in her arms.

We welcomed Kade Ashton Carson. The man that Ashanti was destined to love from the day she was conceived in her own mother's womb.

Ashanti was blessed with the wonders of new mommy-hood. She radiated pure joy much like the rest of us parents do when we first lay eyes on the perfect babies we miraculously made. She found her calling in life, her purpose, her one true love. Nothing could contain the infinite bond and the pure love Ashanti and her new baby boy, Kade shared.

As each day passed and Kade grew, her love grew profoundly stronger. She was a mommy.

On Dec 7, Kade awoke with breathing troubles. His mommy rushed him to the ER where nothing apparent was discovered. Kade and his family were sent home. Kade still wasn't feeling well and was acting weak and fatigued. Hours later while nestled safely and nursing in his mommy's arms, baby Kade fell asleep. He was never to awake again. This precious boy was called to heaven at the tender age of 6 1/2 weeks. His family did everything that they possibly could but it was baby Kade's time.

When Kade was born he was given a beautiful angel to protect him always, his mommy Ashanti. Now Kade is his mommy's angel, always to watch over and love her until they are reunited again.

We are raising money for anything this grieving family might need. Funeral costs, lawyer fees, counseling, even extra money so that they can take the time off to heal.

Please contribute to our cause and help a family in need. They were expecting a bright first holiday for their newest and most tender addition now they only mourn. Any amount will be greatly appreciated by us all.

In loving memory of Kade Ashton Carson 10/23/13 to 12/07/13

Thank you and God bless,
Team Kade
