Cullen's Friends
We love reading your messages and uplifting comments.
Thank you all for your love and support.

Cullen you're an amazing little guy touching so many people's hearts! Your mommy and daddy are an inspiration to so many! You're our thoughts and prayers!!!

Holly, I know you don't know me, but I have been praying everyday for you, Joe, and your baby since I heard your baby has anencephaly. I never heard of that word until 14 years ago when our baby girl was diagnosed with this birth defect. As I read your blog, I felt your pain, and yet also praised God for your wonderful testimony. I prayed everyday for God to work a miracle in our baby girl's life. God is good- all the time, and He certainly did perform a miracle as she lived 5 days instead of 5 hours like we were told. It still seems like yesterday! I continue to this day, to thank God often for how we experienced Him in countless ways during my pregnance and her life on this earth. I don't know if you feel this way or not, but even though I carried Kristin physically, I knew that people for miles and miles around were carrying her with me! What a blessing it was to experience the love of so many people. I will continue to pray for a miracle for baby Cullen and for grace and strength for you and Joe. I don't know what that miracle will be, but I do know that God is faithful! Sending a hug your way:)

My dearest Holly,

You and Joe are so brave to share your story. Cullen is so lucky to have parents like you. You are reaching people in ways that no one else can. Brandon and I are keeping you all in our prayers and thoughts daily. The love you have for God and the love you share together will see you through.

Our love slways,
Taren & Brandon

Cullen (aka Peanut), Your Mom and Dad are an inspiration to us all. Their ability to handle what life throws their way with grace, dignity, and smiles on their faces is incredible. We have so much fun spending time with you and your Mom. Why last week we even managed to balance a strawberry frappuccino on your Mom's belly (with you helping push up of course). You just keep your Mom running to the potty every 15 minutes and we'll help keep her smiling. We'll talk soon. Love, Uncle Jason. :)

You are beautiful, inside and out. I'm so glad I've met you and I hope you continue to bless others with your smile, laugh and stories. I think of you and Cullen often and I hope one day I will get to meet one of your kids and tell them how amazing you have always been.

Stay strong. We believe in you!

I sit and I read the posts that your mommy writes and I am convinced that your mommy and daddy are the strongest people I know. I have watched as they have walked through their relationship together and where the Lord has brought them from to where they are now and I am so proud of them. I feel like every time I look at them my heart breaks a little because I know that they are hurting and yet I am also uplifted so much because God has used all three of you to impact so many peoples lives that you may never know about until we are all together in Heaven one day. I pray that the Lord continues to carry your mommy and daddy so they can enjoy all of the wonderful blessings with you. You are loved so much baby Tusing!

Prayers for you and your family, Cullen! I can remember your wonderful Mommy when she was just a cute little girl in preschool! You are part of a wonderful family that is full of God's love! God Bless you, baby boy!

Cullen, we are so excited to meet you. You are such a blessing, already, at such a small being that you are. I am so proud of you. You have been given the opportunity to someone special and carry a huge responsibility in just being you. You have been chosen by God along with your Mommy and Daddy to travel this path. We love and appreciat you and your parents. We cannot wait to meet you! Gerald, Stacey, Weston, and Cooper

How lucky you are to have such wonderful parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and beyond. You teach every single one of us every day what a miracle is - and I know nobody knows this more than your parents. Every kick and punch your mommy feels and every kick and punch your daddy feels through your mommy, proves that the miracle of life is the most amazing thing. There are so many people waiting patiently to meet you - to kiss your cheeks (that I know you will get from your mommy) and see your beautiful face (that both your mommy and daddy have a part in). Even without being born, you have touched more lives than you know. We love you VERY much.

Thank you to all three of you for being in our lives. <3

Cullen, I keep you and your parents in my thoughts and prayers daily. You are so blessed to have a wonderful and loving Mommy and Daddy and all the family and friends that go along with them. Holly & Joe, we love you and would love to see you soon. Also, Joe, that beard is freaking awesome...I'm jealous. Love yins!!!
