For the past two years, Sloan has traveled the world. He’s impacted millions with his story. He has graced magazines, made newspaper headlines, appeared on television news, been the topic of online articles, filled countless conversations. He’s saved hundreds of thousands of other little lives.
He has taught, he has reminded, he has overseen, he has comforted. He has bridged divides and formed friendships. He has raised money for March of Dimes and First Candle. He has raised awareness for crib safety and SIDS. He has pushed medical professionals to better educate new parents.
He has helped teach his brother the value of unconditional love and bond of a sibling, he has taught his sister independence and persistence. He has taught his mother and father that they are stronger than what happened to them, helped them survive when they didn’t think they could.
All of this he has done, before his third birthday. All of this he has done, before his third death day. Sloan was only 7 months old when death took him from us, but the most beautiful part, is that we know his work isn’t done yet.
