Kaden James - Warrior Angel

On August 18, 2008 we were all blessed with Kaden James and followed his amazing journey here on earth. Jamie, this precious one's Mommy, called him her Warrior. He is indeed a warrior of CDH. Jamie always held on to hope - and we kept encouraging her to hold on to that because sometimes that and prayers get these amazing beings through. Kaden liked the idea of wings over feet and on September 16, 2008 he flew to heaven after being in the comfort of his parents arms.
His parents are amazing people and hope to have foster children in their home. We don't pity these families and babies - we are in awe of their amazing strength.
I imagine that Kaden is in the company of the Arc Angel Michael - who is the leader of the Warriors of Heaven.

Duke Medical Center - Carter

John Carter is still in the NICU at Duke Children's Hospital & Health Center as of this posting but we have been amazed at Carter's progress and Duke's doctors, nurses and their entire staff's patience. With these babies who have congenital diaphragmatic hernia, it is a delicate dance they do to get them to the point of going home. Carter is now on that fast track, feeds are an issue as with many NICU babies.

The ability, skill and instincts of the Duke staff have been absolutely amazing and it has been a thrill to watch them work with Carter. Of course his parents, Kellie and Brad and canine sister Lucy have been so dedicated to Sir Carter too! They have been staying at Parker's House which is supported by the Parker Reese Foundation another wonderful organization for families affected by congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
Kellie and Brad - thank you for letting us feature your amazing boy!
Keeping you all and the Duke staff in our thoughts and prayers!
