Not only does Cole have new sight, but so do I. Losing a child has changed the way I view life, death, God, my husband, you name it. Cole's life was short, but it was full of purpose. I may never know the full extent of God's purpose for Cole, but I know for certain that Cole had an impact on many, many people. I love this quote that I came across on a baby loss website, "There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world".

UPDATE 2017: After nearly six years of extensive research, we received confirmation of a diagnosis. Cole had a rare genetic condition related to the RTTN gene. About ten to twelve cases have been reported in the world, and because it is so rare, his case will be reported in a medical journal and entered into a gene matching website (think match.com, but for genetics). This information could potentially help doctors, researchers, and families with children with the same symptoms and characteristics who don't yet have a diagnosis. This is just another way God will use Cole's life for good.
