" - Soulumination
in honor of Tye


Little Tye was born on March 24, 2010. He suffered from single ventricle syndrome and end-stage heart failure. Courtney and Kyle, Tye’s parents, love “his silliness, sly looks and distinct ability to make his preferences known. And he’s so very snuggly and sweet.”

Tye recently underwent a heart transplant, and his parents were understandably anxious about how he would emerge from the procedure. “He had just learned how and started to point where he wanted to go when we went for cruises in the hospital halls,” they remember. “After the transplant, the pointed finger was the first sign his character was unchanged.”  They are so grateful to the donor and donor’s family.
