Kyler Jackson Torres was born June 23rd 2014 into the arms of Jesus. My husband and I found out that Kyler had Thanatophoric Dysplasia, a lethal form of dwarfism, not compatible with life. I got the pleasure of carrying him for 8 beautiful months but God had other plans. I know that someday I will hold him in my arms again but until then we will always have our son, and my older son's baby brother, missing. You can read more at BabyKyler.blogspot.com.
Please join us in celebrating Kyler's first birthday in Heaven, by walking or running a 5k at Running Y sports pavilion at 10 am on Saturday, June 13th 2015. We will meet together for a balloon release before following the trail around for the 3 mile walk/run. You may bring dogs on a leash, with doggie bags, as well as strollers, as this trail is paved. Dedicate this time to him and help us send him as much love as we can.
Shirts can be purchased here https://www.booster.com/runforkyler2015
Proceeds will go to the non-profit foundation, Molly Bears.
Molly Bears hand makes and personalizes teddy bears weighing exactly the weight a bereaving parent's child did when they passed away and sends it to them. I have one for Kyler and it has brought me such peace. I can pick it up any time I want and feel exactly how heavy he was. It gives me something to touch when I need it the most. It costs $45 to make one bear and they spend over $2000 a month on shipping fees. On average, it costs $5.15 to ship bears less than one pound, $10.85 to ship bears between one and five pounds and $14.74 to ship bears six to nine pounds. To learn more, go to MollyBears.com or find their Facebook page.
Please consider buying a shirt to support Molly Bears and wear it together for this day.The proceeds from your shirt will go straight to Molly Bears as soon as the campaign ends.
Thank you for your support. We look forward to your contributions and seeing you on June 13th.
Please feel free to invite anyone you would like.
