One Year ago Today

One year ago today a precious little spirit joined his family here on earth.  Baby Caden is the son of two very loving parents and the little brother to an adorable sister who just turned three. Caden was born into two very large extended families. Caden is very loved!

Caden's life has taught many very important lessons to those who know and love him. His young parent's strength to endure Caden's illness, the very hard decisions, medical treatments, an extended hospital stay,

the return of their son to our Father in Heaven at just four months old, and what has been very long days and nights since has been a true example to us all.

I'm very thankful for the knowledge of
Heavenly Father's plan for eternal families,

the love of family,

the compassion and empathy of others,

and, mommies who keep us close to
their hearts.

A Tribute to Caden, a Child of God
(author unknown)

I am a child of God and He has called me home.
My earthly journey's through but still, I do not walk alone.
He leads me, guides me, walks beside me, helps me find the way.
He welcomed me with open arms. I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I have gone ahead.
My earthly life was brief but oh, such peace and love you gave.
You loved me, held me, stood beside me and though I cannot stay.
You gave me much to help me and I live with Him today.

I am a child of God and I will wait for you.
Celestial glory shall be ours, if you can but endure.
I'll lead you, guide you, walk beside you.
Help you find the way.
I'll welcome you with open arms
One bright Celestial day.

We love and miss you Caden and our thoughts 
and prayers are with you and your family today and always.

Love, Aunt Shelley
