Several of you want to find an easy way to read about our sweet Kyle’s life from day 1. Hopefully you can find what you need here. Feel free to read through the story in chronological order through the links provided below – or take the shortened version by way of this video here.

Thank you for taking an interest in my little boy. By doing so, you are in a sense extending his life by creating a new memory.

Our God did some amazing things when He gave us our baby. I’ll do whatever I can to make sure He isn’t forgotten and continues to have an impact around the world.

As you read through his story, feel free to contact me and let me know how it’s impacted you. You can leave a public comment here on this post, or send me a private email at kimzkitchen at gmail dot com (no spaces and a dot for the “dot”) ūüôā I don’t respond to every email, but I do personally read all of them. ¬†Several friends I know only through the other side of their computer screens have shared their own personal stories with me. I do pray for each of them.

Thanks for stopping by. And thanks for taking a moment – or a few – to learn a little bit about my Kyle Nathaniel.

  5. Thank you for sharing your experience of the Lord carrying your family through this experience and all that you learned and are still learning from it. It gives me a lot to contemplate today, and builds my faith.

    • Thanks for reading, Katie! He was such a special little guy – and now that we are so dangerously close to his second birthday, he’s on my mind a lot too.

      I hope your day of contemplating is one of also finding joy.

      Love, Kim


  6. Your story was a great blessing to us. We have 4 little ones with the Lord and 2 we are raising for the Lord. Kyle’s pictures remind us of our first little girl Anna Grace, who was delivered stillborn at 30weeks, saving Vals life by taking a blood clot. Thank you for your testimony and sharing your story and pictures. It reminds us of our story and also our friends at the wilds.

    • Thanks for stopping by and reading about our little Kyle. I’m so sorry to hear about your family in Heaven – what a hard thing it is to be a mama to ones here and want to be mama to the ones there. May God continue to comfort all of us as He’s taking care of our little ones. ‚̧

  7. Kim, I have just watched Kyle’s story on Youtube, via the BJU post, and a BJU alum.

    Thank you for telling his story, and yours. I have not lost a child, my babies were born before the days of routine ultrasounds, but I was greatly moved by seeing this very real little person whom God created and brought to his intended Home.

    It is not easy to see things as God sees them, with eternity in view. You have shown us how. Thank you for allowing God to use you in this way. God bless, ~Joyce

  9. Hi Kim,
    One of my friends from Facebook sent me the link for your blog. My sister just had a baby in Philadelphia. He has trisomy 18.thanks for sharing your journey, I will share it with my sister as soon as she is ready.

  10. Kim, and family –
    Thank you for your courage in stepping out to share this time for you and your family. You help give me courage to be vulnerable, and share my life with others. Your story teaches me the value in living life together with others. Brothers and sisters coming together, connected in Christ’s love and restoration. As we step closer to Christmas, your story offers a heart warming reminder to press into the goodness of Christ’s gift, the unconditional love and connectedness with God. With joy and love, Breanna
