Jude's Story

Jude Matthew was born on August 11th, 2019. He weighed 8 pounds, 7 ounces, and was 22 inches long but God called him home that day. Jude was happy and healthy for 39 weeks and 3 days inside his mother's womb. However, he was born without a heartbeat. His death was ruled an umbilical cord accident but his life was not an accident. God created him for a purpose. His life, although short here on earth, had great impact.

Our family and friends supported us in many ways. Our hope is that no family or person should ever have to endure the pain of child loss alone. Let us support you, the way we were supported, even if it is as simple as providing your next meal.
