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!

we got by with a LOT of help from our friends…

It’s the 25th…well close to the 26th of June now…so my son has been gone over a year now. this was without a doubt the most difficult week yet. I don’t really have the right words to explain it all…I wish it just made sense. but not much does these days. he’s gone. we’re not. and making that transition is horribly difficult and incredibly painful.

his day was as nice as it could be. the very best of people surrounding us (with a few exceptions of people who were out of town) and pastor gary spoke a wonderful message. and the balloon release was breathtaking. we had a very relaxed day then at our home afterwards with the sounds of childrens laughter and family…

we made the most of it….

I’m very glad that this week is now over…

thank you to our family and friends (extension of our family) for being there for us from day one…we are so grateful for you…

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.
