Almost three years ago, on March 23, 2009, we welcomed out little boy Trey into the world, then on April 4, we let him go to become an Angel in Heaven and not live a life of sickness. His short life made a HUGE impact on our lives and the lives of our loved ones. This impact inspired me to start my blog and reach out to other Angel Parents and inspired me to spread the word about CHARGE Syndrome, the very condition that ultimately took my son's life.Every year I do a service project in his honor, as that is the only kind of gift I can give him on his birthday.
This year I will be donating a foot of my hair to locks of love and to those of you who know me, that is quite a gift for me to give, as I have not had short hair since middle school. Trey made the ultimate sacrifice by holding on and fighting for his life and we made the ultimate sacrifice letting him go, NO parent should have to make that choice, sign those papers and go on living without their child.
This year I am asking EVERYONE to make an impact in their world or community between the dates of March 23rd - April 4th, whether it be donating to a charity, performing a random act of kindness, volunteering, offering services/products for free to those in need, etc. Please make an impact in honor the impact that Trey had on all of us.
I would also like to collect all of the impacts andpost them on my blog to show the world the impact we can make for a baby we love and lost. So, if you feel comfortable, please leave a comment on how you, or someone you know made an impact in their world or community for Trey.
Thank you so much for your participation and please feel free to share this service project with your loved ones and encourage them to share their impact. Much love to you and yours!! The Chathams
