Thank you so much for all of the love, sacrifice and prayers offered on our behalf. Fulton’s life on earth has ended but his work in eternal life has just begun. With your help we are certain Fulton’s story will continue to touch hearts.
It has been an incredible journey during which we have met some amazing people. People who offer up their own suffering for others. We have been introduced to children who in all their innocence call churches to have masses said for strangers. People who generously offer to help, support and pray for those in need. Truly there are future saints among you reading this. Certainly we are all called to be saints.
We hope Fulton’s story can help others to accept God’s will and to respect the dignity of each human life. Everyone, including Fulton, has a God-given purpose. We wanted to take a moment and recognize a few organizations and ministries that showed us love and shared Fulton’s story.

We must also recognize the countless individuals who have offered us love, prayers and support. You know who you are. I’ve thought about posting names of our friends, many of whom are new, but I think it’s best to just say we have been so blessed with your kindness. Please know how much we have relied on your prayers during this journey. You truly have lifted us up.
During our journey we were introduced to several incredible individuals, some of whom are just children, who offered their own suffering on behalf of Fulton. When the time is right we may share their stories. In the meantime, will you join us in praying for all those who suffer with:
