A hot August afternoon in 2010 a beautiful little boy entered into our lives and this world. He was perfectly pink and his beautiful eyes looked up at us and we immediately fell in love. In that precious moment we had no idea what the future was going to bring and how drastically our lives were to forever change.
Our sweet boy, Colten has been such an incredible blessing to our family and community. He has taught so many the true meaning of strength and courage and continues to amaze everyone with his achievements each and every day. Like many children with WAGR, Colten has had to overcome some extremely difficult obstacles. He has been through therapies, surgeries, and worst of all cancer, but every time he tackles these things with a smile on his face and a hop in his step. He is a happy little boy who loves to read, snuggle, and play with his family and friends. Having a child with WAGR Syndrome is by no means easy. Each day can throw a new curve ball at you that you never would have expected. But, with Colten we feel like we hit a home run. We feel blessed to have such an incredible little boy, who’s joy for life and smile are contagious.
