For Thomas Patrick, on your 12th birthday

Thomas's 12th birthday cupcake

Thomas Patrick is the son of Kelly and Tim Gerken. He walks alongside Jesus with his twin sisters, Faith and Grace, and has two brothers on earth, Timothy and James. During an ultrasound, his parents learned that Thomas had Potter’s Syndrome, a fatal condition in which his kidneys did not develop and caused low amniotic fluid. Kelly and Tim chose to continue with the pregnancy, and after delivering their little boy, were able to spend 6 precious hours with their son before singing him into heaven. To learn more about Thomas and his sisters, please read Kelly’s post at The Beauty of Sufficent Grace: The Story of Faith, Grace, and Thomas. These three beautiful children inspired their mother to create Sufficient Grace Ministries, a non-profit that blesses bereaved families with much needed support.
