**Update: Everett passed away on July 18th @ 11:42a.m. He is now completely healed and is with Jesus. Please donate if you are able to help the family with funeral and medical expenses and please continue to pray for this family. Their hope is in Jesus but they are heartbroken and will dearly miss their precious Everett Louie Shuai.
The Kelley family adopted Everett, 3 years old, earlier this year. He had a congenital heart defect, and they knew that major surgery was in their future. After much prayer and consulting with doctors, they were told that Everett's only chance was to have a major surgery by the best pediatric cardiac surgeon in the U.S. They packed their bags and headed to Michigan and on June 28, 2017 (which was also Laura & Josh' wedding anniversary); Everett had his surgery.
Over the past 19 days there have been many highs and many lows. The couple has continued to place their hope in Jesus, but it has also been the saddest time of their lives. Where it stands now, it will take a miracle for little Everett to go home to be with his 5 siblings. Please pray for this family and give what you can to help alleviate the ongoing medical expenses.
