Drakes Birthday Wednesday February 18, 2009.

I cant believe its already been a year since my little doodlebug was born. It seems like yesterday we were back at the NICU. Well I dont need to tell you how much I miss him, because im sure you could imagine. We are taking a gift basket full of baby items that were bought and donated for it. We figure that it would be a nice gesture to remember him each year by doing this.

On another note I just want to thank all my friends that i have met along the way of our journey with drake and cdh.

Ashley, Amy, Kate, Corin, Leigh, Karen..... Just to name a few. I cant say enough how thankfull I am for your support and friendship along the way. I think of you as family and have come to love each and every one of you and other moms along the way.

Please remember our precious angel on wednesday. I am sure he will be blowing angel kisses to us all.

Please keep the miles family in your prayers these upcoming weeks there daughter Faith was also born with cdh and sadly grew her wings. Her 1st birthday is coming up.

Amy ... you are doing a wonderfull job. If you dont mind I would like to post about Faiths book drive.

Per Amy....

Hello! I just wanted to let you all know that we are doing a book drive in memory of my daughter Faith Grace Miles for her birthday this year. We are collecting new and gently used books to donate to possibly several places depending on the number of books we get. We are looking into donating to the family center at the University of Michigan Mott's Childrens Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House of Ann Arbor, or the local library where Steve and I grew up.

Books can be shipped or if you dislike the post office gift cards to Barnes and Noble or are welcome.

Here is the address you can ship them to:

Amy Miles

2275 Fawnwood Dr.

SE Kentwood, MI 49508

If you send a mixture of new and used books, put a little note in as to which ones are new. I think that the hospital may only be able to accept new books, but we are still looking into that one.

Thanks soooo much!

Amy Miles

Christy- I am sorry this is a bit late, but I was thinking of you and Drake on his birthday, and everyday. You have touched my heart, and I know that Gabe and Drake are very good friends up there in heaven. I love your idea of donating the basket! I'm sure it will help bring a smile to many faces.

Thinking of you always!
