Matthias entered our family on October 20, 2010. We are blessed beyond belief with this treasure of a little boy who was deposited in our family. Mattie was born with Down syndrome and was hospitalized the first year of life. Mattie received a tracheostomy at 4 months of age and spent the first few years of his life on ventilator support, he had two open heart surgeries in his life and also had a G-tube. He lived at home with our family , loving life and pouring joy into us all for almost 4 years. On August 21, 2014 at the healthiest time in his life, a sudden, unexpected, severe asthma attack took his life. We mourn his loss daily.
