Aaron and Holly join Montell Williams to share their story. Over the past year, the family has faced overwhelming adversity.
First, their newborn son Kelvin was diagnosed with holes in his lungs requiring immediate surgeries. After barely surviving those operations, Kelvin became deathly ill with a serious infection. Holly prayed and promised that if Kelvin were to make it to his first birthday, she would give him the biggest birthday party ever. Kelvin is now healthy, progressing well and about to turn one.
Then, unspeakable tragedy struck the family in July. The Middletons’ five-year-old daughter Scarlett died unexpectedly from an undiagnosed illness. The shock and trauma of Scarlett’s passing has shaken the family to its core.
The family’s little ray of light, Scarlett loved to sing “You Are My Sunshine.” Through pain and inspiration, Holly promised to keep alive the joy Scarlett brought to everybody who knew her. The grieving mother created a charity called “Scarlett’s Sunshine” to use random acts of kindness to induce spontaneous smiles. Since Scarlett loved flowers, Holly plans on handing out as many flowers to strangers as humanly possible.
