What is Happening

Sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 1 a.m. Jace was shaken so hard that it caused a subdural hematoma.  There is a criminal investigation, so I think I have to use restraint, but after years of working as a Social Worker and advocating for children, I never thought this type of evil would directly affect my family.


Jace is now in the PICU at St. Francis Children's hospital.  He is in a medically induced coma and we are waiting for the swelling in his brain to go down.  The Dr. is not optimistic, but we believe God hears our cries for help and comes to our aid.  We believe that the same power that raised Christ Jesus from the dead works in Jace right now.  We believe that God has a plan for Jace's life that does not include being murdered.  We believe that God heals.  We believe in miracles.


Favorite quote from Jace:  "I'm a child of God."


If you know me, you know that I write to deal with life.  This is the only way I could think of to channel the overwhelming pain of this nightmare.  Please pray for Jace.  Please send this blog to everyone you know and ask them to pray for Jace.  I will be posting updates about his condition and other information as it comes.

For those of you that don't know Jace, he was born on June 5, 2007 at 25 weeks.  He weighed less than 2 pounds, and was not expected to live. His mother had had numerous other children taken from her custody.  She used meth while pregnant with Jace, and could not identify Jace's father.   My sister Leslie was his nurse.  We had discussed being foster parents in the past, and decided to take Jace.  Life was hard.  The first night he was with us, I thought he was going to die in my arms.  He made it though, and has grown into the most delightful, wonderful, adorable human being in the universe.  He has truly made life worth living for all of us, and I can't imagine life without him.  I lived with Jace and raised him along with my sister until two weeks ago when I moved into a separate house and her boyfriend moved in.  That was hard for me.  This is a million times worse. 

Right now there is swelling in his brain.  The swelling is treated with  medication, but they expect it will get worse before it will get better.  The hope is that they can keep it under control with medication until it goes down on its own.  Until then, it cannot be determined how the injuries have affected his brain as far as brain damage or if there is brain activity. So for the next 48 hours it is just a waiting game.

Please pray.  Please get others to pray.  Jace deserves another miracle.

Please forgive any typos or incoherence.  Im a little out of it.

You can leave comments on the blog.  I have also added a guest book where you can write notes to Jace and we will read them out loud to him.

  1. Words cannot even begin to express the saddens that we all feel. Please know that there are a lot of people praying for Jace and your family. We will continue to pray and ask for God's healing, peace and comfort during this very difficult time. Thank you for allowing us to pray for this very special boy.

  2. Psalm 62.

    1 My soul finds rest in God alone;
    my salvation comes from him.

    2 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will never be shaken.

    3 How long will you assault a man?
    Would all of you throw him down—
    this leaning wall, this tottering fence?

    4 They fully intend to topple him
    from his lofty place;
    they take delight in lies.
    With their mouths they bless,
    but in their hearts they curse.
    Selah

    5 Find rest, O my soul, in God alone;
    my hope comes from him.

    6 He alone is my rock and my salvation;
    he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.

    7 My salvation and my honor depend on God [a] ;
    he is my mighty rock, my refuge.

    8 Trust in him at all times, O people;
    pour out your hearts to him,
    for God is our refuge.
    Selah

    9 Lowborn men are but a breath,
    the highborn are but a lie;
    if weighed on a balance, they are nothing;
    together they are only a breath.

    10 Do not trust in extortion
    or take pride in stolen goods;
    though your riches increase,
    do not set your heart on them.

    11 One thing God has spoken,
    two things have I heard:
    that you, O God, are strong,

    12 and that you, O Lord, are loving.
    Surely you will reward each person
    according to what he has done.

  5. May our God hear our prayers and heal Jace, bringing the swelling down and allow his body to completely recover from this assault on his little person.

    May the family draw together with love and with hope and with all good thoughts and positive feelings, building one another up and drawing from energy they didn't know they had.

    Jace ~ Little Guy, you ARE a child of God and he loves you so much. No matter what happens, you will ALWAYS be loved. Your body is made to take care of ouches and I know yours is working SO HARD for you right now. We are all talking to God about you and those who are with you. Keep believing.

  7. I am hoping for a miracle for your sweet Jace. My son, born 5/28/07, had massive amounts of bleeding on his brain at 5 months of age. He was in a very similar situation to Jace. My son made it through after a long month in PICU. He has developmental delays now, but he is here and in my arms, and he is happy. That's all that matters. Here is a link to my blog (all about my son's journey) eliahjames.blogspot.com. I hope and pray that all is well and you have peace in your heart. Please feel free to contact me if you need an ear.

  16. Jace... you ARE a child of the Most High God. It IS His will that you live and not die. I also am a child of God, a royal priestess,and as such I speak with the authority given to me by Him through the blood of the Lamb. I speak to the blood in your brain and command it to stop in the name of Jesus! Swelling go down in the name of Jesus! Brain line up with the word of God. Neurological system function as God created you to function. I believe that everything that need be accomplished was already accomplished on the cross. You were healed by the blood of Jesus and you will live a life of abundance. I pray peace for your loved ones. The peace of God that passes all understanding. I praise the Lord for your recovery. I glorify His name, the name above all names. He is worthy...He is holy...and He loves you. I pray for and thank God for your miracle in the powerfull name of Jesus. Amen

  24. Jace,
    With all that I am, I know that nothing can separate us from the love of God. All is alive within God's love/God's being. You will never fall out of God - never - never - no matter what. Faith means that when we don't know, we can trust in the mystery of God, that the mystery is good.

    My most fervent prayers and Gods love,

    Kristen

  32. Jace:
    I was a nervous wreck the first time your Grandma brought you to my Pre-School class with your feeding tube attached & an extra one in case that one came out. If this occured I was to call 911 and then your Mom, fortunately that never happened. You always had a piece of Beef Jerky to chew on since you couldn't eat very much.. I soon found out you were a very tough little guy. I can't believe that Jesus has brought you this far to let you down now. You are in our thoughts & prayers.
    I love you,
    Miss Lettie

  33. I'm sad and am hoping and praying for little Jace. I know what it's like to have a child, a baby, fighting for his life in the hospital. Jace is a strong little guy and he will pull through because underdogs always do.

    Your picture reminded me so much of my son after his open heart surgery. I want to give Jace a little hug and tell him to stay strong because his foster mom and auntie are waiting for him and they have a lot of love to give.

    I really hope that the investigation goes well and your family finds out what happened and if there is a guilty party, I hope that the law works and actually takes care of the perpetrator and give him/her what he/she deserves.

  34. Jace,
    I keep thinking about the last time we saw you & how you kept telling us that Jesus loves you. He does and I know He is holding you right now. We love you & are all praying for your complete healing. And, your girlfriend is especially eager to go to lunch & share queso with you again, so get better quick.

  41. How terribly sad and heart wrenching. I'm truly sorry that such has befallen this sweet little boy. I wish him health and wellness, and I wish you and your family peace, calmness, and faith.

    From Isaiah:
    Do not be afraid, for I have redeemed you. I have called you by your name, you are mine. Should you pass through the sea, I will be there with you; or through rivers, they will not swallow you up. Should you walk through fire, you will not be scorched and the flames will not burn you... Do not be afraid, for I am with you.

We will pray until God's will is done precious child. We will pray because we can't do anything else! AMD

  58. Little Jace, We, too, have fought for the life of a baby who was hurt by another. God did many miracles, and we believe in miracles, and we KNOW how much Jesus loves and will fight for you! You have been set apart and called by God from the womb, and although there is an enemy of God, He is stronger and His WORD prevails, and we declare that HIS WILL be done in your life. You have already been trained to know Him, you are one blessed little boy, and you will be part of another miracle, that God will be glorified through your life.

    "The Lord relieves the fatherless. . . but the way of the wicked He turns upside down." Ps.146:9

    "The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of Hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge." Ps.46:7,10-11

    Jace,

    You are a precious little man. We love your smile and your big beautiful eyes. I remember crying when you were too sick to go to a foster home and was told that you were going to a children's home for ventilated patients in Bethany Oklahoma. Leslie took you home, became your foster mommy. Leslie saved your life be doing this. You would not have survived without LOVE that you got from your Burgess family! Honey, that is true love. Love Lifted Jace and he was healed of all his infirmities because Burgess Love gave you all you needed. You not only came off of the ventilator, you came off of oxygen after you turned one. We were all rejoicing. That was the first miracle.
    Now we ask for miracle number two for you. We know God CAN DO IT!! Love to you and your mommy, aunt Stacy, grandma and grandpa. Prayers across the world for Jace Burgess. Love and Prayers, Kristy Nickelson

I know how much she loves you and this all just breaks my heart. I pray that God keeps you in his mighty arms and keeps you safe and makes you strong again. I don't pray near as much as I should but I know that there is a God that loves us all....you are his child and you are loved!

  82. Jace and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers! Though I don't know you, I know the pain and heartache that you are going through. Trust in God and He will comfort you. Let His will be done and may he cradle you all in his loving arms as you go through this difficult journey. As hard as it is to trust that the horrible person that did this to Jace will come to justice it may not be until he is judged before our Almighty God and he will be judged!

  84. Oh precious little boy! When I heard your story and began to intercede for you my heart was breaking. You are such a precious little boy and you have come through so much in your first three years of life. I know we serve a might GOD and that He loves you and created you in His image. I pray he will hold you tight and allow you to rest and heal. I pray for your family as I know they are heartbroken too. May your testimony bring God glory. Praying for the doctors and nurses that care for you. My own son was adopted as a newborn from foster care. He spent 6 weeks in PICU at Children's Dallas. The doctors gave a grim prognosis but because of the power of God and the prayers of many he has been delivered. Praying the same for you sweet boy. I printed your picture for my Bible. Claiming and believing a miracle is at work in your life.

  91. Tears fill my eyes as I read this story and my heart aches just knowing how this little innocent child is suffering. I pray that our merciful God will restore Jace to health and that he will be a witness to God's power of love and healing. I pray that God gives strength to Jace's family and loved ones, and that they be given peace in their hearts to know that God watches over his children. Prayers from Texas.

  95. II Thessalonians 1:2 says "May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace". This is my prayer for your whole family that God and Jesus will look down from Heaven and give you grace and peace for the difficult time that you are having to deal with. I pray that Jace gets well and and will soon be singing his lungs out. Beautiful boy a message for you from me, I really don't know you but I feel a kinship with you because we have the same Father, our Lord, I pray for you to get well and start having fun with all your family and friends. Sing a song for me Jace and get well.

  111. So who did this is my question?

    ReplyDelete
  112. I too work for Family Support in MO. I just do medicaid. But, I work in a hospital and see poor little babies just like Jace. I have found that God does punishes the abuser. In ways we will never know. If the abuser is sent to prison, his/her life is forfeit. Guys in prison for other grimes will not let live some who has abused a child like Jace was abused. They will pay, trust God for that, they will pay.

(Isaiah 54:17) Lord give your angels charge to guard round about his body so that no evil will befall him neither shall any plague, calamity or harm come near him.

  149. Good morning, sweet Jace. I'm praying for you and talking to Jesus about you and asking Him to heal your precious little body. I KNOW He is listening and He cares for you and loves you so very much! I have a precious little grandaughter who started out very tiny with lots of problems like you and the doctors said she wouldn't live, but let me tell you - after many many days and nights in the hospital our God said it is time to heal her body and she is going to be 5 years old next month! Jace, Jesus loves you, this I know! I love you, sweet boy. Tell your family to stay close by you and to keep praying and for all of you to expect a miracle! Our God is good - all the time! I'll keep praying for you, sweetie! GG:)

  150. A prayer for Jace:

    Father God we believe in You, we trust in You. We know you have the healing power needed to restore Jace. Lord God, You have provided one miracle in allowing Jace to live until now and we believe You are providing another miracle in restoring Jace now. Lord, with the power that healed Peter's mother-in-law; the power that healed Jairus's daughter; the power that brought Lazarus back to life and the power that raised Your son Jesus from the dead on the third day; with that same power reach down and heal Jace! We believe in Your power to heal Lord! So we ask for healing for Jace! In the name of your Son Jesus Christ we pray this! Amen.

    I stand in faith that he will be healed and wake up as the sweet little boy he was before this terrible thing happened.
    He has a chance in life. I believe that God- JESUS will heal him! When two or more come together in the name of Jesus miracles can happen!

That you give him Life and that More Abundantly! That NO WEAPON formed against him shall prosper!(Is.54:17) I THANK you Father for giving Jace the life you created for him before he was formed in his mother's womb. That Jace shall LIVE and NOT die and declare the works of the LORD! Thank you JESUS for taking those stripes on your back for Jace's injuries. That with Jesus stripes Jace WAS(IS)HEALED!(Is.53:4&5)(1Peter 2:24)We give you all the GLORY and PRAISE for this Healing, In JESUS Name!

WHOEVER DID THIS TO HIM WILL ANSWER TO THE LORD, AND WHOEVER ALLOWED THIS TO HAPPEN TO HIM WILL ANSWER TO THE LORD AS WELL, AND CERTAINLY SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM HIS LIFE. I AM CERTAIN, THAT THE LORD IS GOING TO MAKE SURE, THAT HE IS NEVER HURT AGAIN, AND HE IS MOST CERTAIN IN THE SAFETY OF JESUS CHRIST. DON'T WORRY JACE, JESUS IS WATCHING OVER YOU. YOU EXIST FOR A REASON. GOD BLESS YOU PRECIOUS ANGEL, FOR I KNOW YOU ARE WITH THE LORD, AND THAT YOU ARE NOT IN PAIN, AND YOU ARE TRULY SAFE NOW.

This is so hard for all of us left here wondering why....May you wrap this precious foster family and all of Jace's friends, family and loved ones in a supernatural peace that only YOU can give. As Jace begins dancing in heaven, running through "tulips" please wrap him in Your loving arms. Heaven is delighting today as they receive the gift of this precious child. Please, Lord, also be with the family who will receive Jace's organs so they will know the magnitude of the gift you are providing them! Words can not express the pain of this horrific incident but we KNOW, GOD, YOU will use this for good!

  175. I don't know you. My friend was one of Jace's teachers last year. I was at her house Tuesday and she told me about Jace. The way Jen smiled when recalling memories of Jace and things he said and his personality- it showed me that this little boy really had influenced MANY MANY lives, adult and children both. Since then Jace & family have been in our prayers. My 9yr. old daughter is especially concerned, she heard how the injuries happened. You have been in our thoughts and prayers and will continue to be. I don't even know you, but I am SO ANGRY and mad that this could happen to such an innocent child. I type with tears of sadness and pray for the best. I am so sorry you are having to go through this. Obviously, Jace touched the lives of many. Thoughts and prayers to you all.

  176. I cannot imagine what you are going through. Words cannot express my feelings for you & Jace. Jace was given to you for a reason. All you can do it put it in God's hands & let him take over. I know that whoever did this will get what is coming to them God has his ways. Please just lean on God during this hard time & he will heal you & make you stronger. ALL of my thoughts & prayers are with you & that precious little boy that touched so many peoples lives. Love Always, Ashley Long "Robertson"

My son was also shaken by a sitter, 10 years ago and reading your words sounded so familiar to my own. I believe that God is still in the miracle business and I will be praying for healing and peace for Jace and your family. I will also pray that justice is adequate and swift. God bless you all.

    lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

    3 For you have been my refuge,
    a strong tower against the foe.

    4 I long to dwell in your tent forever
    and take refuge in the shelter of your wings.
    Selah

  181. I am so sorry for your loss. I have two children of God. Both whom are Special angels my David was 26 years old on June 5th and he was not supposed to live past 5 years old according to the doctors but God had other plans. I cried for your family as I read this. No should ever have to go thru what you are. Praying for you all.

  182. I may be opening a can of worms here, and it may have already been posted (because I did not read thru all the posts), but please pray for the person who did this. Obviously they are in need of the Lord. Watch over this person dear God, and bring them someone who can tell of Your salvation, Your hope, Your healing. In Jesus Christ's Name, Amen.

  183. Two years ago our town had a very similar death of a 3-year old boy, Aadon, and is still recovering from it. The grandmother of the child is now working hard at raising child abuse awareness in our surrounding communities. I am sharing their website link with you, perhaps you may find some comfort in it. Perhaps Aadon and Jace are playing together now in Heaven. Prayers for you and your sister as you get through this. You are not alone in your grief.

  184. Sweet Sweet little Jace. May Jesus comfort you in His arms. May Jesus comfort your mom with the precious love and grace and strength of the Holy Spirit. Praying for your family.

    I never had the joy of knowing you on this earth, but I will get to meet you one day "just over the hillside". Please know I'm thinking and praying for you and your family. Until we all meet again...MB

  186. You don't know me. But, still my heart is broken for you. Praying for the peace of the Holy Spirit to wrap around you. Nothing makes since right now. It probably never will. There are no words that can possibly comfort you. Please know we are so sorry for the loss of your sweet boy.

  187. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Jace face to face but heard lots of wonderful updates on facebook. I am so in shock as today is the first I have heard of this tragedy and I so hurt for you and all of your family. I will pray for healing of hurts that run so deep. I believe God will give you the strength when you don't feel you can move forward. Your family has always been so special to me! I want to do whatever I can to help. Lots of Love!

  188. Our family has been through this horrific ordeal ourselves. My cousin, 2 years old, was beaten with a wooden suit coat hanger 3 years ago this July. She was the light of our lives and did not deserve this, but through our grief we donated her organs so that other families would not have to experience the pain, hurt, and yes ANGER of losing their precious child. Through her organ donations 5 other children were spared and she lives on within each of them. TO THE FAMILY: your aching hearts will ease in pain, but will never quite heal completely. But know your selfless gift WILL make it easier to bear the burden of your loss. MAY GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU WITH HIS LOVING ARMS TO EASE YOUR PAIN AND MAY YOU FIND THE PEACE THAT YOU SO LOVINGLY DESERVE!!!
