Caden Thomas

Caden Thomas was born on Wednesday, August 3rd 10:01am at 7 lbs 12 oz 20 inches long.  At first everything looked great, but then they found he has a severe Aortic Stenosis, as well as a narrowing in a portion of his aorta, and a mild stenosis as well.  At 7 days old, he has already had extensive open heart surgery and is still fighting. Caden's parents, Becca and Adam, are two of the most incredible people I've ever known.  Their faith is breathtakingly inspiring.  I only hope that I would be half as strong and half as faithful as they are.  Please pray for Caden and for his parents and for his big sister, Jayci.

Oh, and did I mention that they serve in inner city Atlanta mentoring to kids, and just signed the contract on their house the day before Caden was born (a process that took OVER a year) in the city to be closer to "their kids".  Not to mention, they had just invited a pregnant 14 year old girl to live with them...
Told you they are incredible.  Not to mention, humble
