SCARBOROUGH | Every time somebody leaves 8-year-old Kyle St. Clair’s room, the boy says a parting “I love you” and blows a kiss. It doesn’t matter who’s leaving. It could be a family member or a person he met for the first time moments before. He’s adamant about it. …

    I believe God sends us little angels to work in very many different ways. Kyle sounds to me like one of God’s little angels. May we all learn from him and put petty things aside and live for the days that we have been graced with.

  • What a heart-wrenching yet hope-filled story!  I pray that between now and Kyle’s last day that he and his family have more “good days” than “bad days” and plenty of time to build all those happy memories that will help Kate, Mark, Alexis, and Jack get through the dark days that they know are lying ahead of them.

    Agonizing.  The St. Clairs sound like amazing parents.  This is a reminder to live each day to the fullest – and to be grateful.

  • I have followed this little boy and his family for almost a year. I read his mother’s blogs and cry the whole time. She is a wonderful mother to not only Kyle but to her other children and children she doesn’t know. I check his page everyday and hold my breath until I know he is still with us.
    This little guy has a heart as huge as the world. He worries more about helping others and making sure to tell everyone he loves them then he is about leaving and becoming an angel. Truley an inspiration to all. Christmas is coming Kyle and you will be here to see it, I know you will.

    Words to express this family’s courage do not exist in the English language.  What an inspiration.  How often we “sweat the small stuff” and feel sorry for ourselves, myself included, when this family is simply thankful for their little boy alive and breathing in the morning.  Heroic is the only word that comes close to describing this entire family.  I am showing this video to every person I see today – hopefully we all can realize how lucky we truly are.

    This is a very sad story in many ways and I found myself in tears as I read it. But it is also a very hopeful one as well. Most people spend their lives trying to make as much of a difference as this boy has done in his 8 years on this earth. He is an inspiration for us all. My prayers go out to him and his family.

    What a tough little guy and so loving as that is what is keeping him here day to day. What a blessing he is for his mom and dad and stay strong in believing in another new day. Best wishes that a miracle comes and he says I am Kyle, I am strong and my love will always be here for his family and friends. Stay strong little guy and may tomorrow come with peace…

    My heart goes out to little Kyle and his family for all that they have been through and all they continue to go through. I cannot possibly imagine the difficulty of these past 9 years.  But, one thing for sure is that this little boy and his family demonstrate to all of us what’s truly important in life.  They are a beautiful example of how life and family is supposed to be… filled with unconditional love for one another.  This little boy will live on in the hearts of so many long after his physical body fails him.  God Bless this family of angels on earth.

    This story has touched the hearts of all who have read about Kyle and his family.  They are truely blessed to be a family and to  feel the love they have in their hearts.  There is a picture of Pooh and Piglet somewhere and it says it all.
    “What day is it,?” asked Pooh.
    “It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
    “My favorite day,” said Pooh.

    Thank you Seth for a heart touching story.
