Because of Parker...

Three years ago today, Parker Reese Singletary was born. She lived only one day, but her life has made an incredible impact on our family. We firmly believe that Parker saved our son's life. 

Because of Parker, Jes (Parker's mother) felt inspired to form the Parker-Reese Foundation. We met Jes before Davis was born, and she convinced us to at least tour Duke, just to see what they had to offer. On Jes' recommendation we did just that, and fell in love with the team there immediately. We knew they were the doctors who could give Davis the best chance at life. 

If it hadn't been for Jes, we would never have looked into Duke. 
If it hadn't been for Duke, Davis would not be alive today. 
If it hadn't been for Parker, none of this would have happened. 

Thank you, Parker. We never met you but we love you.

This proves that there is always a reason for why God does things we don't understand at the time. Thanking God for Parker and Davis.

I don't know how I missed this post but I'm a firm believer that there are no chances in life and that fate doesn't exist and that God has a plan for everything He does.

As Ashley and I prepare ourselves to attend the funeral of baby Clarissa I started feeling sorry for myself and so I thought I would check up on my boys and I saw this post. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sitting her crying and that I am so touched by your words.

We are so honored that you allow us to be a part of Davis' life. That you share him so openly with us and that one day he'll understand who Parker is because of you two.

I needed this tonight so thank you so much.
