Thank you for your grace

As a year has now come and gone since the birth of Elan Vie, we want to express our deepest gratitude to all of you who have stood with us, embraced us, nourished us, cried, and found significance with us. We are amazed by the beauty that our sweet boy has brought into this world and we are in awe of the love that has come through all of you as we walked this journey. We could not think of a more special tribute than to love deeply and to embrace the beauty and passion for life each and every day.

We celebrated Elan on September 14th by breathing deeply, reflecting upon the year, and gathering on the beach with close friends and family. We prayed together and wove together the beauty and pain, darkness and light of the last year. We scattered his ashes in the Pacific and released his physical form to the world. We joined together and created intentions for the future of our family while throwing rocks into the ocean as we dreamed. Each time we dive into the ocean we swim with our son and bathe in the sweet and loving hopes that we collectively put forth.

We know and trust that, in the spirit of Elan Vie, something wonderful is in our future. Life continues to be a blessing.

With Love and Abundant Gratitude,
Jalene and RJ
