This is our precious son Keegan- who can light up a room with his beautiful smile and sunny disposition. He loves to give sloppy wet kisses and finds it funny to wipe them off. Since his birth in 2008 Keegan has had some health issues which included open heart surgery and recently he was diagnosed with unilateral hearing loss. However, this doesnt cause his daddy and I to put limitations on Keegan. Instead, we have decided to encourage him to reach his fullest potential through love and patience. Keegan has taught his entire family that love is not what you look like or your abilities, it's about who you are on the inside that counts.

Keegan is truly amazing but what makes him truly a star... Is both his loving parents,who are compassionate, patient, non-judgemental, all embracing.. the list could go on. Its those attributes for which Keegan will instill and succeed.
