TristenOur 6 year old son Tristen Nathaniel Silva was diagnosed in December of 2012 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (A.L.L.). To us, he was a miracle baby in every sense. After saving money & getting a line of credit, we had him by way of in-vitro-fertilization. After a failed first attempt, the 2nd one was successful, he was the perfect baby. Tristen has this unique & magical ability to gather people around him, to see & make him smile because it is so contagious. In his kindergarten class, he is the candle, every kid gravitates to him, on his hockey team, of all the 14 kids there, the one that all the parents played with other than their own was Tristen. If & when you meet him, you will see what I mean.
