"I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Jonah and Judah are thriving and loving life outside the freezer. ☺️ Their personalities are so different and it’s been such a joy watching them learn and grow. And watching their older brother, Nehemiah, interact with them has been the absolute biggest blessing ever. God has been so good to us!"

-Meghan, mom of Jonah & Judah (NEDC babies 1336 & 1337), Nehemiah (1016), and biggest bro Noah

When NEDC families come here for transfer day, they're encouraged to take a faith rock at the checkout window; a reminder that God is their ultimate source of hope. Tyler & Kelsey hung on to their rock for the entire journey that ultimately, last month, led them to Greydon (NEDC baby 1461, frozen 7 years).

It's faith in the goodness of God that motivates us to care for His tiniest image-bearers, like Greydon.
