Miss you, little buddy.



Our nephew Jake was born with a birth defect called Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). He was only 6 months old when he passed away on February 16, 2007, but we think about his sweet smile, his goofy personality, and his fight for survival often. We also marvel at how much we learned from him in such a short time, and we're thankful to have him in our family. We know we'll see him again. His parents and sister also set an amazing example of faith for us, but days like today are tough... we hope you'll think of them today.

We'll be wearing turquoise on March 31 to raise CDH awareness and to remember Jake. You can learn more here.
