Our Christmas Card (kind of...)

We will forever list Kaden as apart of our family...because he is of course part of us and continues to be although he is not exactly in our home.  And as far as Karter goes...we are thinking this will for sure be his name but may change our minds when he gets here....but so far I like it!  We hope all of you find yourselves enjoying your holiday season! Thanks for the love and support shown from all of you this year as we found ourselves surviving and coping yet living life without our sweet son Kaden. 

Love to all!

November 30, 2010

November 30, 2010- 1 year anniversary
I can hardly believe it has been a year since I held my sweet boy in my arms.  I literally watched his spirit leave his body.  I am left with much grief and much sorrow.  Words don't do it justice but I am left with a grateful heart for the memories I have and for those who still remember and honor my son.
This was a very touching and sweet experience.  It's been a year and yet people still remember and show their love for our son and as his mother it brought me much peace and comfort this day.

Rusty and I were able to place the tile that was made in honor of Kaden.  It is on the wall in Banner Deseret Medical Center NICU (now know as Cardon's).  We graciously recieved such an honor.  Not every child has a tile and in fact a lot of the tiles are done by families.  Kaden's tile was donated from his Neonatologist group and nurses who loved him.  They still remember and love him. What a gift!
