2011 Balloon Release


On May 7th, we celebrated Kayleigh's life by having our second annual balloon release here in Wilmington, NC. It was how we describe Kayleigh as Amazing!

Friends and family came out and we shared a special time together with tears flowing and hearts bursting with love. It was a special moment for Aimee and I to have everyone there supporting us through this tough week.

Kayleigh has touched so many hearts and she continues to amaze us day by day even though she is up in Heaven. She is sending so much love down to us and it shows through the new friends we have made along the way.

Thank you everyone who came out to spend this special day with us. You all mean the world to us and we couldn't be happier to have you all in our lives.

Thank you!

This has been one of the most touching stories I have seen on Utube. I saw this beautiful baby fighting for her life. Just seeing her with a very loving family holding her in their arms. She was so happy and loved. I bet you all held her as much as you could. I know it was very hard to let her go after all she had been through. The time you spent with her was a gift from god. I'm still crying as I write this to your family. I'm so happy to see a family loving a baby as special as she was.

Hello Mr. and Mrs. Freeman,
It's 2am in the morning and I'm really not sure how I arrived at this amazing story. Though as we know, God works in mysterious ways. I'm not sure why He led me here but I sure do thank and praise Him for it. This story of your little daughter touched a place in my heart that I didn't even know was there. I lost my daughter on January 16, 2004. She was 33 when she passed away. I never imagined there was so much hurt for a person to endure. As I'm sure the two of you know so well, it left a hole in my heart much too big to ever fill. Through the years I've been able to accept things a little better but it still hurts so deep. Long story short, I am so moved by the two of you and how you have gone on to help other people with similar circumstances and pain. I could not go to bed without writing to tell you how very sorry I am that Little Kayleigh lost her battle. But I know with all my heart and soul that she and Lisa (my daughter) are now and forever safe in God's loving arms. This has truly touched my heart. And before I go let me tell the two of you what wonderful people that you are. God bless you...and Kayleigh. Very Sincerely, Marlene from Gastonia, North Carolina

Me comovi muito com a história!!!

Infelizmente Deus a levou pra perto dela.... porém... pensemos que talvez ela era muito iluminada pra viver em um mundo como o nosso.

Parabéns papai e mamãe por todo esse esforço.

Kayleigh too said...

tears run down my face as I read Kayleigh's story. I was blessed with two healthy twin boys and I couldn't imagine losing one. Kayleigh fought and wanted the world to know she was here. even for a short time. My prayers and thoughts are and will be with you.

I don't know where to start...I have I have been in Women's health the majority of my 30+ years of nursing and I have seen many many miracles. A miracle is not always synonymous with life, although as humans that is what we usually want. Lucky for us, God's plan is ALWAYS bigger than us and our fumblings. Kayleigh is STILL a miracle! She is there with God, grandparents that get to watch her run through the meadow. Her light will never be snuffed out. She is one of the lucky ones. She has a family that loves her still, and remembers her still. You are awesome! I have seen so many little ones born, some that did live a longer life, others that like Kayleigh, did not live a longer life, but OH WHAT a powerful message she has for all of us left behind in the kingdom of God! However, Kayleigh Did...and Does! She got to see her Mommy's and her Daddy's face before and after her surgery. She got to know your touch, your smell. She got to hear the loving words you prayed over her, and feel held in her heavenly fathers hand each time her palm, smoothing the way and make His way as easy as the other way. She got to feel your love for her, and carries that light into the next world. Kaleigh has touched so many person's through her parents' faith in God and expectant faith where the miracle of Kaleigh's birth started as a miracle, continued to be a miracle from the eye surgery that allowed her to see her mommy's and daddy's eyes, loving expressions on their faces and mouths, her little hand exploring all of the things possible. You will see her again, and so shall all of us, caught in the air to joyously join our Father God, Abba Father, and meet all of our innocent family members just waiting to go to war one last time, beside their brothers and sisters in God before we can settle down and get to know the loved ones that have gone before. It will be a sweet sweet victory...Oh death where is your victory...where is thy sting. Our God has taken it away and given us JOY instead. Here on earth there will still be pain for a time. I never want to minimize that...it will be better over time. You have found some very worthy ways to celebrate her life...and that is the part that continues to amaze us and raise our sad spirits because who but a fool could still be sad in the face of such a strong life, strong faith, God bless you all, and you will remain in my prayers for many years to come. She was a strong little girl, but she has a strong sister and brother as well as super strong parents. This may make you weaker for a time, but your basic values are there...and they are STRONG. That is the only way you could continue to bless people years later. Funny, I was in NC for 30 years, love the beach and wilmington is a favorite haunt, but I had to move to texas to be moved by your story. Thank you. If you need anything...just ask. I will gladly join you in prayer!

I was heartbroken when I heard kayleigh's story. Tears ran down my face as I read that kayleigh did not make it through the fight. The worst part was when she died the day after mothers day. My prayers go out to your family and kayleigh up in heaven.

I was reading kayleigh's story and thinking this is so sad but then God reminded me that this isn't sad it's a story of life how can life be sad I found her story on YouTube and cried all the way through this verse has helped me through many hard times it's isaiah 51:10 even though the mountains be shaken and hills be removed yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my promise be taken away says the lord who has compassion on you Remember God will fight for us we just have to be still exadous 14:14
