Want to show your love?

This is Lindsey's friend, Michelle, letting you know how you can share your love for sweet Parke Henry with the Gibson family.  If you have been touched by Parke's story in any way, it would be a blessing to Micah and Lindsey for you to share that with them.  Maybe you are a close friend, an acquaintance or just know of their story through the grapevine.  It doesn't matter how you are connected, but it does matter that God has used the life of Parke Henry to touch many other lives!!
They've had people mention that Parke's story and life have encouraged them to start the foster care process, move forward with adoption, hug their kids tighter, or even trust deeply in our God's plan. It is wonderful for grieving parent's hearts to hear that a lost life was used in a mighty way. 

Would you consider giving this gift of comfort and encouragement to Micah and Lindsey by simply telling your Parke story?  You can send a sentence or two, a letter or even a video.  Some of these sweet stories may be used at Parke's memorial service.  Please send them to these three email addresses:

Micah and Lindsey:
Sarah Lauren Wade:
Michelle Burton:

Lindsey will get to read each story as you send them and Sarah Lauren and I will work to compile and organize them.

In place of gifts and flowers, Micah and Lindsey ask you donate on Parke's behalf to:
Pediatric Palliative Care
at Arkansas Children's Hospital
1 Children's Way
Little Rock, AR 72202

Much love and many thanks have been expressed by Lindsey and Micah for the outrageous out-pour of love for their family today. 


  1. I heard of your story through Stephanie Henderson. What amazing people you are! You must have hearts the size of the sun to love as big as you guys do. :) I am adopted myself, and have five children of my own. Every day with a child is a gift. I prayed so much for your beautiful family, and will continue to do so.

    1. Thank you so much for your prayers and sweet comments Stephanni!

  2. Came across your story thru a friend... praying for your family today and for many days to come.

    1. Thank you for your prayers, Jenni!
