I did’t expect to meet baby Christian that morning; after all, I’d only met his mother in passing at church the weekend before. Little could I understand how much he would touch my heart. As I spent that hour by his bedside getting to know his mother, trying to be supportive of a sister in Christ whom I had only just met, my heart was filled with love for Christian and his family. His presence was so peaceful for a boy in so much pain and discomfort. He seemed to respond to voices with his eyes and make faces and movements just as any other newborn, but God did not intend for Christian to be just like any other newborn.

As you learn more about his story, you’ll realize that Christian’s purpose reaches far beyond even all of those who were blessed to meet him, his legacy lives on and will multiply in ways unseen- just as God designed. A more peaceful spirit you may never find as precious Christian in my mind.- Sara Adair , Palmyra Va

“Although I did not know Christians family before Christians Purpose was in the beginning stages, they have really made an impact on my life. It’s truly an inspiration to meet Jesse and Chelsea ( Christians Parents ) to know what they have and are going through but moving forward helping others through Christians Purpose.  They donated a highchair for my little boy who uses it very often.  I also see Chelsea still pumping breast milk to donate to others, that is truly amazing! If you have never pumped before it is very time consuming to continue with the pump schedule, sticking to nutrition, keeping your supply and overall not the best feeling in my opinion.  Christians Purpose has made a big difference in peoples lives around our community.  Although Christian may not be here on earth anymore he has touched so may lives already and will continue too.”
