We had Caleb's 1st birthday party today at our church. It was amazing. There were so many people there to celebrate Caleb's miraculous life. Caleb was so cute in his little bow tie outfit. He knew he was the king of the party! We had a Noah's Ark bounce house for the older kids. We wanted Corey and Devin to not feel left out. They so often have to do without because our time is occupied caring for Caleb. They have been so loving and understanding. This party was for them to celebrate as well. Thank you God for Caleb and our wonderful family. We are blessed beyond words.


  1. We had a great time! Thanks for giving of yourselves and allowing us to celebrate with you. It was truly a blessing to be able to celebrate this occasion of Caleb's first birthday, especially after seeing you and your family go through all the times when it looked like this celebration would never happen! Caleb is a such a sweet little boy. :)

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I am part of TEAM TRISOMY LIFE and I will be running a 10k in honor of Caleb today. I am on my way to losing 153 pounds. I've lost about 85 pounds of that goal and will do an Ironman Triathlon in Wisconsin in 2012, to raise awareness for Trisomy 13 and 18. My blog is

    I am not a fast runner and this is the first time I'm doing a 10k (6.2 miles) so for each step I am fighting to take I will be praying for Caleb and each breath he is taking fighting for his life.

    Much love and BIG HUGS today.

  3. I just read your whole blog. you have such a beautiful family. I laughed, I cried, I smiled. I am so glad to have met your wonderful family. I learned about Caleb through Jen Bastinila's facebook page. I'm pretty sure I just butchered her last name. :-) Thank you for letting me peek in on your family. I posted this to my blog under my trisomy links. I hope you do not mind. Have a blessed day.
