Eden Rebekah Anderson was born Saturday, October 13, 2007 at 3:46 PM at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills.

While our family did not receive the healing that we had so long hoped and prayed for, we are rejoicing in the miracle of Eden's birth and grateful for the time God allowed us to spend with her.

Eden passed away this morning at 4:10 a.m. from the arms of her mother and father into the arms of her Heavenly Father.

Thanks to all of you for your words of encouragement and prayers. We are doing well, have a peace that transcends understanding and feel blessed to have had the opportunity to love this little girl for her short thirty-six hours of life.

We will always hold precious Eden, and the lessons she has taught us about faith, courage, and hope, in our hearts. Thank you, Eden, for teaching us SO much, and one day we'll meet up with you, dear one!

Alexis, Steven and kids -
We mourn with you and the family yet rejoice that Eden is in the presence of our loving Saviour! A song written/performed by Twila Paris several years ago entitled "Visitor From Heaven" was written for very close friends of hers who had a baby who was born and lived only 1 day. It's a lullaby/prayer that says:

"With aching hearts and empty arms
We send you with a name
It hurts so much to let you go
But we're so glad you came
We're so glad you came"

Lindsey and I love you guys and are so blessed you obeyed your hearts early on and gave the decision to Jesus to see Eden born. "We're SO glad you came", Eden and we'll see you in heaven!
