September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month. At PCFLV, we are committed to spreading the GOLD all year long. However, in September, we truly make it our mission. 30 Days, 30 Stories celebrates the children we know and love and the brave battles they fight and have fought, with their families by their sides. In celebrating these beautiful children and their stories, we hope to inspire you to join us in our mission to SPREAD THE GOLD in September and all year long!

If you were to ask me 3 years ago if I was going to have any more kids, I would have told you NO WAY! I thought we were done. However, our angel love, Jack, who passed from pediatric cancer on December 21, 2012 had something up his sleeve. I say this because I used to see many signs from him. I'd see J's, hearts, songs...I knew they were signs from him. He was such a sweet, caring boy. When I found out I was pregnant, I was very surprised. I stopped seeing the signs, they weren't happening as often as before. I spoke to my cousin, who has the gift of connecting to the other side. I asked her why I hadn't been able to see the J's and hearts lately. She said it was because I was finally healing. It's been 5 years already. 5 years since I felt my son. I believe he sent us our baby boy, Nathan, because he felt and knew we were ready. He knew, but it took me awhile to realize. He sent us a gift. Our Nate resembles Jack very much physically and in his personality. He LOVES cars and trucks just like Jack did. He has helped my husband tremendously. We're older, wiser, have a little help with our other kids, and I have had the chance to really enjoy him. I'm watching him learn and grow every day. I'm so thankful for that. It's a lot of work to have a baby, but when you feel it's a gift from your son who you lost, it makes it that much special.

I miss my Jack with every heartbeat. Not a day goes by that I don't stare into the sky and talk to him or think about him.
