A Precious Life

I became aware of the Mack family earlier this week from my friend Jenny. I have been following the amazing journey their family has experienced this past week. Their son Kaden was born last Friday. Before he was born they knew he would have a cleft palate and also thought he had hydrocephalus. When he was born, the MRI proved otherwise. His brain had not formed and neither had his eyes. They have kept him alive on life support this past week to let everyone who needs to come see him come and bask in his spirit. They plan to take him off life support and return back to his Heavenly Father today. This family has handled this amazing well and have been a great example to me, I would only hope I could be so strong. If you have a minute take a look at their blog and see their beautiful Kaden, oh and grab a kleenex.
