My arms are empty and acheing...

I can’t believe I’m a mother without…

Life has been twisted and turned upside down. As a mother, I had both the wonderful privilege of holding my sweet son as I brought him into this world…and the horrible chore of holding him as he took his last breaths and left this world, at only 7 years old. June 24, 2010 he earned his angel wings, passing away after an inspiring but brief fight against Cystic Fibrosis. Now I live, solely focusing on living a life to get to be with him again in heaven, and to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis research. I am dedicated to a cure, not only for my sweet sons legacy but so that other CF families never experience the greatest loss of their lives that we are now facing. My mother’s arms are missing Connerman, yet he still inspires me daily to leave a mark of LOVE on this world…so for you my sweet prince, mommy will try!

Father of the universe…

Of course I’m biased…

but I’ve known my husband since we had graduated high school. the epitamy of immature.

there is nothing like a 20 year old “boy” to put into perspective…a life of self centerdness and things of unimportance.

I’ve known him thru all of that.

I remember the day like it was yesterday…

the day he became a DAD….

and not just a dad…because anyone can be a dad…but a FATHER.

A loving, caring, compassionate, up in the middle of the night with a smile on his face, MAN…no longer immature, self centered and relying on his own dad anylonger…

but a MAN who stood up to the challenge and jumped in with his heart leading the way…and I am so honored to say that he is the father of my beautiful children…

Heres to you my dear…

Brad and Conner Kissing

the firstborn son…the child who made him a FATHER…

the secondborn who made his heart melt even more…and confirmed in him that he was always destined to be a fabulous father…

Thank you Brad for creating with me three of the most precious, perfect sons I could ever dream for…for leading this family to a wonderful life, with wonderful memories, and teaching our children of Gods love and their parents never ending support and love and ENDLESS boys nights and cuddles…

we are so lucky to have you…

Happy fathers day to all you fathers out there…seasoned fathers, fathers to be, fathers in the making, and fathers who are dreaming of being fathers…you all matter so much…

All my Love,

Sarah

  1. You're not biased because I too think Brad is one of the best husbands and father's in the world. When Braxton was first diagnosed with PBS, tons of therapists called and insisted Kory and I had regular visits to prevent divorce. When I asked why, they simply said that the physical and mental emotions in taking care of a sick child can moreover take over a marriage....Leading to divorce. Especially with men. That being said, despite what the two of you are going through....Brad has been an amazing rock for you and your family and I hope all dads out there follow his example. I look up to him a lot and I know my husband does too. Happy Father's Day Brad!

Did You Know....

There are over 100,000 people, the size of a small city, on the transplant list in the US.

There were less than 10,000 deceased organ donors in the US last year. (that's a ratio of 1 organ donor to every 10 transplant patients).

In the time it takes you to shower today, 1 new name is added to the US transplant waiting list.

From the time you woke up this morning to the time you wake up tomorrow morning, 18 people will die waiting for their transplant in the US.
