In Matthew's memory

It is amazing to me that a heart can ache so much for a friend you have never met... Myself and so many others like me in the Internet community are still in shock over the passing of a dear loved one ...


Lori and her husband John welcomed their newborn son, Matthew, into the world on Saturday. He passed away in his father's arms about 8 hours later. So many family and friends want to do something tangible in Matthew's memory. Lori has asked me to arrange it such that donations will go to you and your efforts to help so many babies.
Lori's sister Joy...



Lori and John have been long time supporters of the work of PI in Kyrgyzstan. Their generous and caring spirit has been a source of inspiration to me from the first contact I had with them... No mater how difficult or devastating situation we have come across, Lori and John have been there ... whether on Face book or on the Blogs, their heart for the Children of Kyrgyzstan has always been in the for front...


Now at what is , I am sure , the most difficult time in their lives, they are again reaching out to share their love with those who have no one to love them.. They have asked that I would help them to do something in Matthews memory that would leave a lasting impact ...

Just yesterday It was shared with me that at they Baby hospital in our city in Kyrgyzstan they do not have a working EKG machine... in fact in the entire city there are only 2 working machines... something that we take for granted... ... This hospital is the hospital that the unwanted babies are brought... I think it would be fitting that they would receive this EKG machine in honor of Matthew.. Not only will it save lives, but it will reinforce our belief that there is no such thing as an unwanted baby. And for these babies, like Matthew , We may never have had the opportunity to meat them , but that does not mean we did not love them...

What a blessing to come from this sweet little boy's life. He will continue to impact the lives of sweet innocent children like himself for years to come. Thank you, John, for doing this for Lori and John and Matthew -- and for all the sweet babies at the hospital in K'stan.

Wow, this is beautiful and most definately an impact forever. Making a difference and paying it forward is what Lor and john do best. They're a blessing to this community- -children in need and to us. Mathew is a proud angel in heaven.

We love you all,
God Bless
