This website is dedicated to the short, precious life of Adrian Cole, his birth and tragic death and Matt's and Matt's family's thoughts, prayers, and healing from this traumatic event. The courts found Josh Rowden innocent of the murder of Adrian, mainly because Adrian died of bacterial menengitis. He and Leah were never arrested for the "accidental" broken bones and bruises Adrian had endured. However, we firmly believe Adrian would be alive today if his immune system would have been strong enough to fight off the bacteria, instead his immune system was too weak because of his other injuries to continue living. This page is for visitors to sign and give us your thoughts and prayers, however it is our way of healing so I have and will continue to remove postings debating the innocence or guilt of Josh. If people wish to debate that, they should go register www.defendjosh.com and put up their own website. To Tony and the rest of Josh's family, please respect my feelings on this. The trial is over, and we are trying to heal, let us do that in our own way.
Thank you,
Mark and Jamie Hasting

Well little man today you are 4, I wish I could have thrown you a birthday party, I love doing parties - - well the prep, blowing up the balloons, making the party bags, plus much more. I love making memories. I think that is why I am so sad today, I feel so cheated, I want the memories, the special special memories I should have with you. I do thank you for being my angel and I am sure you have met my mother in law by nowÖ. Her name is June, I bet she has given you so much love, she is really good at that, tell her we love her ok baby boy. You could be 4 today ***we miss you forever***

Dear Matt and Family,
I followed the link on Mark Hastings site out of curiousity because my last name is Cole, Anyways more importantly i mourn your tragic loss. I am sure little Adrian is in Heaven with GOD and you will see him again someday as beautiful as the day he was born. Matt stay with what you are doing and put your trust in GOD. GOD Bless you, and especially Little ADRIAN.

Hey boy whatís up, I'm just sitting hear thinking about you and I know that you are up there with all the other angles enjoying yourself. Your dad is doing really well, he works at the hospital, and he went through a pediatric course to learn how to work with kids. I am really proud of him heís doing good changing his life for the better. There a lot of people who have heard about what happened to you and I think this web site has really helped some people who had young kids die in there lives. I just want you to know that yes maybe you're not here, but your story is helping people, you did not die in vane you are helping so many people thanks little guy! I love you so much I'll talk to you soon

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ADRIAN COLE

Sitting here with my grandson
I sit quietly and my mind strays,
As I think of other grandparents
and how they spend their days.

Some spend them at the playgrounds
pushing grandkids in the swings,
Some lie in the newly mown grass
and listen to little ones dreams.

Running thru the tall grass
with butterflies and nets,
Catching different kinds of bugs
and keeping them for pets.

Getting chocolate cookie kisses
and lots of I love you's,
Looking through old pictures
and seeing how much they grew.

But sitting here with my grandson
I have no one to hold,
The angels came and took him
When he was just 53 days old.

So I visit his little grave side
and I ask our God above,
To please keep him in his loving arms
and let him know that he is forever loved..

Grandma....

There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings.
In a tree by the brook, there's a songbird who sings,
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it makes me wonder.

There's a feeling I get when I look to the west,
And my spirit is crying for leaving.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees,
And the voices of those who stand looking.
Ooh, it makes me wonder,
Ooh, it really makes me wonder.

And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long
And the forests will echo with laughter.

If there's a bustle in your hedgerow, don't be alarmed now,
It's just a spring clean for the May queen.
Yes, there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on.
And it makes me wonder.

Your head is humming and it won't go, in case you don't know,
The piper's calling you to join him,
Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow, and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind.

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul.
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold.
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last.
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll.

And she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Your survival through this, each of you touched by this challenge, is amazing. That you have this site, and share your story, is as much a gift to us all as Adrian was to you. Your story continues, and the lessons shared and experiences and feelings expressed, we all benefit from, somehow. Sorry for what you had to go through, but know that though we can't say good comes from it, the people who read and share and cry with you again and again are grateful. I am. Thank you for sharing.

Hey Adrian its dad, i was just getting on to say hi, its your 3rd death date today and i'm pretty depressed about it but i'm getting used to being depressed on this day its nothing out of the ordianry. I got a Job in the hospital now here in Grants Pass and i'm working in the med/surg unit now on the third story now and last night when i was working and i was sitting there eating my lunch and there's a baby song that comes over the speakers when a babies born, but when i heard it all i could think of was you and i think the only reason i didn't break down in tears is because someone came in the room right as i started to get overwhelmed so I couldn't cry but i wish you were here with me. The fun we'd be having would be unbelievable. But I just want you to remember I love you son and nothing will ever change that... I LOVE YOU BIG GUY!!!!!!!!!!

Now we will remember you and tell your story so maybe one other baby will be protected the way you should have been! we will put some flowers in the lake for you and plant a few flowers so you make sure you watch for them , ok?

sitting here wondering
how many lives you touched
this sweet little angel
that god suddenly took
wondering how his kisses felt
a hug or a touch
wondering whta your doing
my angel
that god suddenly took
wondering how your laugh would sound
or how you said my name
how you took your first step
or your first peek a boo game
wonder how you would act with your first birthday cake
my darling angel that god had to take
wonder what your doing right now
if your laughing
or if your playing
or the sound of you cooing
i wonder what god had in mind
when he took you that day
i wonder if he thought about me
when he took the angel of mine
i wonder if he carried you to heaven
or if you got your wings right away
i bet that they are beutiful
sweet angel of mine
i know my heart did break
i heard an angel sing
to rejoice and be happy
you will alwaya be with me
my angel god had to take

My Dad is a survivor too...
which is no surprise to me.
He's always been like a lighthouse
that helps you cross a stormy sea.
But, I walk with my dad each day
to lift him when he's down.
I wipe the tears he hides from others.
He cries when no one's around.
I watch hom sit up late at night,
with my picture in his hand.
He cries as he tries to grieve alone,
and wishes he could understand.
My Dad is like a tower of strength.
He's the greatest of them all!
But there's times when he needs to cry...
Please be there when he falls.
Hold his hand or pat his shoulder...
and tell him it's okay.
Be his strength when he's sad,
Help him mourn in his own way.
Now, as I watch over my precious Dad
from the Heavens up above...
I'm so proud that he's a survivor...
And, I can still feel his love!

I found your link by accident, but I think God directed me to it on purpose. I was a young father as well, and my child's mother and I were not able to care for my son. We gave him in adoption to a loving couple in New Mexico, and today he is a happy and beautiful 10 year old boy. We get pictures and letters every year. It was the most unselfish decision I have ever made.

I wish Adrian's mother had had the courage to put her son first - Adrian had an obviously loving father an extended family who wished to care for him .

Courage and peace to Matt and his family. Adrian is with God and at peace.

Please accept my sincerest sympathies I will not forget what I have read on your site.

This website immediately touched me. I cannot imagine a tiny baby like that going through such turmoil and torture. The only comfort is in knowing that God is cradling him in His arms right now and that he feels no pain. I hope that you and your family heal and cope and are able to move on; but keep Adrian in your hearts.

I am also sickened by the fact that his mother got away with letting that happen to her child. I was a 'teen mom' (had my son at 19) and it's girls like her that make people assume that young moms are all the same. Which is not true. My son is 5, healthy and smart. All because I sacrificed my own life for his. She obviously was too self-absorbed to care for her own child. It makes one very angry.

Good luck to all of you.

I read everything written about Adrian. I am saddened by Joshes treatment of young Adrian, the neglect from his mother. After reading all of this, I felt God had taken Adrian with the infection, and away from the abuse and neglect he was living in.

While Adrianís death seemingly was not related to the abuse, God knows what happened and his judgement is what truly counts. I felt very moved by your faith and this website.

Matt, I hope and pray, that with time you can forgive Leah and Josh. This is a hard step, and I donít feel I have the right to ask this of you. I believe that you cannot enter Gods kingdom with hatred in your heart. You are a good person and an example for others. I will pray for all parties involved.

This site was well worth the thoughtfulness and effort. I am blessed to have stumbled across it while taking a short break at work to mindlessly surf the net. I hope other young parents (like the three of you) who read this story, will learn from your pain and trials.

God walks with you daily, and gives you strength to continue your journey through life. Some day in heaven, you and Adrian will meet all those whom two have been touched in a positive light.


Signed

A less then perfect Christian.
But feeling proud to have briefly

Heavens... I was browsing the internet whilst in work and stumbled on this website.
My heart goes out to you all. I have 2 grownup children myself and cherish their every presence.
i have recently become a grandad and have the same feelings for our little Adam as my children.
How anyone can hurt defenceless infants is beyond me. I have seen many incidents like this in a former role as a policeman and it still shocks and disgusts me.
Do forgive me, I wipe away tears as I write this.
The hurt will recede over time but never leave.
Keep good and happy thoughts, and take care of yourselves.
Regards
Mike

I'm am so sorry about your son. Tears are rolling down my face. I'm not even sure I know the reason why your son passed away, but that is not important. What is important is Adrian is in a better place and will live forever in your heart. And mine.

I just stumbled upon this website and was immediately sucked in...I read every link and looked at every picture. My heart goes out to you - I can't imagine the pain of losing such a sweet little boy. At the very least (and I know this won't ease your pain) he had 11 precious days with his loving father. May God grant you peace and comfort.

well little man, i just had a major surgery and i am a little disappointed that i did not get to visit with you while i was under.... it was sort of a rough operation so i figured if anything went wrong, I WOULD BE THERE TO TAKE CARE OF YOU, SO I WENT FOR IT.
i would have loved to have seen your little face one more time, god was probably sparing me the pain of losing you all over though so i guess he was looking out for me...
I Love You, you are always in my heart & NEVER FORGOTTEN!!

I hope life is moving forward for you Matt and that you're continuing on into nursing. Just try to remember that people come into our lives for all different lengths of time and never take tomorrow for granted... hug them today.

I wish you all the best.

How could someone that had the gift of being a mother let this happen? I have a 3 month old daughter and I cant even imagine letting someone hurt her. I am also a teenager, (1 and just because I am a teenager doesnt make me dumb enough to let someone hurt my child. So, Leah you better hope i never meet you in a dark alley.
To Adrian, I love you and I dont even know you. I Cant believe something like this can happen. But, I am sure your having fun playing with the angels up in heaven.
To Matt, if you ever want to talk then you can email me. You are very strong and i dont think i could survive something like this.
And again Leah, watch your back.
I will pray for your little Adrian everyday..

hi everyone, i know how it feels to loose a loved on. but look at it in a more positive way, Adrian is not being hurt anymore and all of his wounds are healed he is in a better place now and most of all he is HAPPY and i am so proud of the way everyone is in the family is taking adrians loss, to Matt stay stong and keep praying and talking to your son each and everyday don't ever loose faith because eventually it will pay off and you two will be together and when that time comes adrian will know that, thst whole time he had a Daddy who cared! Well a whole family and friends who care! I love you all very much hang in there Adrian, we will never forget you!

It is such a severe tradgic that little cute adrian died. i feel so bad for that baby becasue he did no wrong and didn't deserve any of it. I just met adrian's father and he is a very good person and has helped me through a few serious talks we've had. Matt is an inspiration to me and i look up to him so much. He is trying to make something of himself and i'm so proud of him he has come such a long way and he has the best copeing skills because if i were him(which i'd never be half as good as him) i would tumble and break. I had a miscarrige and that broke my heart so just imagine how i'd deal with it? I wouldnt be able to but i feel blessed that i know someone as good as matt is. Sure he's made some mistakes but there are no mistakes a person can make that cant be forgiven. Adrian, i never had the oppertunity to meet you but if your anything like your dad your a great person i'll see you in heaven.

I sit here and cry. I have a 11wk old son, who I am in the middle of fighting his father to own up to paternity. I get so upset how the legal system works. How can someone admit to hurting a defenseless, child. I look at my son and think of all the things his dad is missing, by his own choice, Matt I am sorry you didnt get to see your son's first smile, or laugh or even his first birthday. By reading your story I have learned to cherish every moment with my son and protect him from the evils of the world. Recently in my family, my cousins little girl, who lives with her mother, was taken away, due to a burn on her arm from her mothers boyfriend. So now my aunt and cousin are dealing with the court system and an innocent child that has been harmed by her mother when her mother should be the one protecting her from others. I fear that once paternity is established for my son that his father will want to see him and part of me wants my son to know his father but then part of me is afraid he wont get the care he needs. Well I wish you the best and hope that you are healing as much as possible. And I am sure one day you will meet your son in heaven and he will be thankful that you are his father and you spent that little amount of time with him. God and Adrian are watching over you and your family. And one day Josh will get what he deserves!

Good morning little angel. I see your face rizing with the sun and it makes me smile, even through all of the tears. I just finished reading all of the entries and I just want to thank each and everyone of you for your kind words, prayers, and thoughts. And with Fathers Day being tomorrow I just want to remind everyone what a miracle, and blessing children are and that being a parent is not a right it is a priveledge! Some people should never have that privledge! So those of you who are fortunate enough to still have your children count yourselves lucky and always keep them safe. Let's get the word out, don't let Adrian's life be wasted, we still need justice for our Angel. Please send this web site to everyone you know and ask them to send it to everyone they know. Thanks again.

Leah,

You and I know that you are as guilty for the death of Adrian as Josh is. You observed Josh mistreat your son and did nothing to stop it until your son was dead. You are lucky that the trial was held in Ketchikan and not in a real court of justice. I hope Adrians' memory haunts you.

I am doing my best, and plan on going further and further. Your Dad is on the right track too. Alot of us are, lets just pray that the rest follow suit. Thank you for watching over us and please don't ever stop. We know you are there everyday. Lotsa Love Little Buddy. XOXO

Well the day has come, I will never forget the over whelming feeling of loss we felt 2 years ago today - - TOUGH DAY, life is getting easier, you would be so proud of your daddy! He has accomplished his first step in the medical profession. He has graduated his CNA training and is currently employed with a nursing home. His next step is phlebotomy and medical terminology. He will succeed in your honor baby boy. I went to Lake of the Woods yesterday where we had your memorial, (I wanted to see if any of the flowers we planted last year had bloomed, but too much snow). I just need to talk to you on the Anniversary of the day we recieved OUR ANGEL - THANK YOU ADRIAN - WE LOVE YOU!

God's will is about eternity. It's about the soul. These are dark times for all God's children. The almighty FATHER is near to the broken hearted. Put your trust in the savior. You are not alone. Walk away from those who seek to destroy and deceive you. Remember love seeks to lift and heal you. I have lost everything that meant anything to my flesh but all is well with my soul and my love of God has grown. To be with GOD is the only thing worth suffering for. Your child is in GOD'S arms. Wer should all be so blessed. Keep the faith in the word of the only one who never lies or deceives. Thank you JESUS. Your the man!!!

I am so very sorry to hear of your bereavement. Sorry seems so inadequate at times like this. There is always hope in tragedy my friend. If you read your bible you will learn of King David who lost his infant son. He was so distraught and sad he did not eat for weeks. Then one day he got up, had a bath, went into the house of the Lord then worshiped the Lord, came home and then ate. if you continue to read the story David said I will go to him but he will not retue=rn to me. Read the story in your bible in the 2nd Book of samuel Chapter 12.

Though you seem confused and angry at what has happened, leave it to God. He was the witness of everything and His judgement will come in the fullness of time.

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and give you peace.

Take care my young friend.

God Bless

Hey Adriand how are you doing son? I'm doing pretty good, I was thinking about you the other night and I wrote you a poem the name of it is to my angel and I hope you like it.

As I sit here in the dark I can't help but to wonder why? Why did this have to happen to you my sweet little angel? It don't make since did I not deserve to be your dad or a dad in general? I know everything happens for a reason but for the last two years i've been trying to contenplate the reason and i've yet to come up with a good one yet. I know I was young but damn I could of handled it, we may not be in the best situtation right now if you were with me right now but my life would be alot more happy and alot less miserable... U'd be two two years old right now and u'd be walking and talking, laughing and smiling but most of all u'd be experiencing all of lifes joy's and u'd be making my life as good as it could get. But instead your sitting in my entertainment center burned into ashes. But atleast you up in heaven sitting in gods lap and watching over the family and I, and playing with all god's angel's up there. The way I see it is if your up there making them as happy as u'd be making me right now then there's one good thing that came out of what happened, I relize they need you as much as I do. I know you mom and Josh did treat you right, but hopfully if they were able to turn back time they would change things in tremondous way. I really don't know for sure but that my big wish. But Adrian always remember I will always love you more than any thing and I wish my angel was sitting here in my lap right now starring back into my eyes....

I LOVE YOU ADRIAN!!!!
UR MY ANGEL



Well there it is son I hope you like it i'll talk to you soon love you bye son...

I still haven't forgotten about you sweet little Adrian. Here is a poem I found on another site.
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With tiny lights, like heavenís stars, reflecting in the snow
The sight is so spectacular; please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music canít compare to the Christmas Choir up here.
I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me; I see the pain inside your heart,
But I am not so far away. We really arenít apart.
So be happy for me dear ones. You know I hold you dear.
And be glad Iím spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

I send you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I send you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, ďLoveĒ is the gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other, as our Father said to do,
For I canít count the blessings or love He has for you.
So, Have a Merry Christmas and wipe away the tear.
Remember, Iím spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.

Hello Darling. I just wanted to talk to you. With our new addition I think of you even more. I just looked at the pictures of you both. You are both so handsome, so precious. I wish you were here, so you could grow up together, the way it should have been. Sadly you were painfully torn away from us by evil people, but I know you are with us in many ways.

HI AM SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT HAS HAPPENED, IT IS HARD WHEN LOOSING A LOVE ONE. I LOST MY BABY BACK IN 1995 IT WAS DEAD BORN AND I KNOW THAT IT TAKES A TOLE ON YOUR SELF.AND EVERY DAY I THINK WHAT HE WOULD LOOK LIKE OR WHAT HE WOULD BE DOIN.ALL YOU CAN DO IS LIVE ON IN HIS HONOR AND MAKE EVERY DAY THAT YOU HAVE LEFT WORTH WHILE IN LIFE. THERE NOTHIN THAT CAN EVER BRING HIM BACK, BUT HE LIVES ALWAYS IN YOUR HEART AND HE IS YOUR ANGEL ALWYAS AND HE WATCHES OVER YOU UNTIL YOUR TIME COMES. SOME TIMES REVENGE IS NOT ALWAYS ANSWER TO EVERY THING. BELIEVE ME I LOST MY DAD A YR AGO AND I KNOW THAT THE PLACE HE WAS IN NEVER TOOK CARE OF HIM, HE IS NOW A PLACE WERE NO ONE CAN EVER HURT HIM AGAIN. WHO EVER DONE THIS TO YOUR SON WILL PAY SOONER OR LATER BECAUSE IT MIGHT NOT BE NOW BUT EVERY ONE HAS THERE TIME.AND THERE PLACE WHO DONE THIS IS GOING TO PUT THEM IN HELL. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU WELL ALWAYS....TAKE CARE.

I have known Matthew and his family for many years, he and my son were best friends in grade school. I have had the priveledge of being called "Mom" by Matt and "friend" by Jamie all these years. And Matt gave me the honor of "Memaw" to lil' Adrain.
I have Adrians picture on my refrigerator where I can look at it every day, it has been there since the day that Matt gave it to me, not long after Adrian's death. His face will be permantly etched into my mind and heart, even though I never got to see him.
I cannot imagine what Matt and Jamie have went through. I cried my own tears, but I know that it was only a fraction of what the family has done. My heart goes out to them all.
And what do they get for their loss? Their grief? A slap in the face from the jurors in Alaska. They stated that they didn't know why the charges were even brought up? Another slap.
To those jurors~you had a chance to fix a terrible wrong done to an innocent child. You failed. If all this was indeed an "accident", there should've been a charge of involuntary manslaughter, or at the very least there should have been a charge of neglect/abuse. But no...innocent was your verdict. Well, again I say...you failed. You failed Adrian, his family, the justice system and other abused children everywhere. I want to ask the members of the jury what they were thinking? I challenge them to write me back and answer that. Better yet, I challenge them, if they are so confident with their verdict, to write to Matt and Jamie and explain to them what happened. They have a right to that, don't you think?
I also want to ask the DA why charges of neglect weren't filed on Leah? She was there, she saw him eveyday. How can you not know that there was something wrong with Adrian? How could she not take him to get medical attention?
As for being a teen mom, that is a cop out. I had my son at 16 and I made it just fine. Of coarse it's hard. It's hard no matter what age you have a child. If I found myself frustrated and angry, guess what I did? What most mothers do? I took a break, I called someone to take over for a while. My mom, my friends. You had friends, right? No more excuses, take some responibility for your part in this and ask God for forgiveness. And Josh, maybe you should do the same. For some reason you have been given a second chance....don't waste it.

Matthew, Jamie...I love you both and I think of you every time I go to my refrigerator. You will always be in my heart. Matt...thank you for letting me be a part of your life.
Adrain...brief in this world...forever in our hearts.
Good-nite Angel.

If anyone ever mistreats my son like that bastard did poor Adrian, I would be in prison because I would kill him! Some people don't deserve the miracle that is bestowed on them. I am SO very sorry for your loss! But he'll get what's coming to him in the end...

This is a poem that was put in the card at my little cousin who passed funeral. It is beautiful.

WHEN GOD CALLS LITTLE CHILDREN TO DWELL WITH HIM ABOVE.
WE MORTALS SOMETIMES QUESTION THE WISDOM OF HIS LOVE.
FOR NO HEARTACHE COMPARES WITH THE DEATH OF ONE SMALL CHILD.
WHO DOES SO MUCH TO MAKE OUR WORLD SEEM WONDERFUL AND MILD.
PERHAPS GOD TIRES OF CALLING HIS AGED TO HIS FOLD.
SO HE PICKS A ROSEBUD BEFORE IT CAN GROW OLD.
GOD KNOWS HOW MUCH WE NEED THEM.
AND SO HE TAKES BUT FIEW.
TO MAKE THE LAND OF HEAVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL TO VIEW.
BELIEVING THIS IS DIFFICULT.
STILL SOMEHOW WE MUST TRY.
THE SADDEST WORD MANKIND KNOWS WILL ALWAYS BE GOODBYE.
SO WHEN A CHILD DEPARTS.
WE WHO ARE ALL LEFT BEHIND MUST REALIZE,
GOD LOVES LITTLE CHILDREN
ANGELS ARE HARD TO FIND

In Loving Memory

I want to tell you that I am a friend of Josh's and I am not here right now to defend him at all. I want you all to know that I know first hand what your family is going through. Yesterday marked the 3 year aniversery that my 6 month old baby cousin was murdered by his own father. Although I wish your family the best in finding the one who hurt Adrian I am happy that I am able to visit this site and that there is no slander going on any more. It is only right that Adrian is remembered for the beautiful baby he was and is still. Matt I am so sorry that this happen to you I know how tramatizing this is on a family when a baby is lost. My cousin had the perfect poem for the baby in his service and I would like to post it on here in a couple of days. I just want you to know that the day I got the call about Adrian comming into this world Josh sounded like a proud dad would sound. Matt I know that you are his father so please dont take offence to that I just want you to understand that he was loved by Josh too. I am deeply sorry for your loss Matt I would like to exchange E-mail with you and be here for you as some one who knows how both sides are. I promise that I will not talk about the trial I will just be here as a open and understanding person who will listen to what you have to say and reply to you in a manner that is not defencive nor critical in any way as I know that you lost out in a beautiful life. HE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

i would like to say that everyone on here that is bashing everyone else. the trial is over, and there was aloss of an innocent life. these people are trying to heal. yes the courts are being unfair by not finding the person who did this and they have to live with not knowing. and everyone needs to put thereself in matts and jamies shoes. how would you feel. this website should be about adrian and nobody else. its not fair to keep bringing up what has happened. let them grieve for thier baby. they are going through more pain by everyone judging everyone else. please, dont let adrian be forgotten by everyones anger for josh and leah. everyone needs to remember who the real victim is, and its not josh or leah. we are all angry by the da not doing there job. but bashing each other on here is not going to make the judge lock up joah. all its gonna do is make people angry and trash up adrians memorials. adrian was a very beautiful baby and he did not deserve what happened. but as it is we do not know who did this. it could have been josh, it could have been leah, it could have been them both or it could have been someone else in the house. the only person that knows is adrian and god. and we may never know who did this. so please leave it alone on here and if you dont have anything good to say on here dont say anything. this is adrians website and it is supose to be about adrian. may god bless you little angel and your family too

I don't know what happened and I'm not saying Josh is guilty all I'm saying is that why did he confess if he didn't do it. I would love to believe that somebody actually treated that baby like the precious child he was. This case has been bothering me every since I first heard about it and I just know that somebody hurt this baby and somebody needs to be in jail for doing so. Also I highly doubt the DA gives a crap what we want.

This is completely outrageous. Matt and Jamie, I'm so sorry for the not guilty verdict. Please know that there are a lot of people in Ketchikan who wanted to see justice for Adrian. Had we been on the jury things would have been different. I didn't know Leah or any of her friends, but I'd love to see her locked up. I hope you guys can figure out a way for that to happen. I just wanted to see that I'm so sorry again, I don't know how those people sleep at night. If justice won't be served here, God will take care of them. God bless you guys.

Well Not Guilty was the virdict, I honestly can't believe it. My sons life meant nothing in the hands of the law. As to Mike and his family, Josh may of gotten off but your precious daughter won't if the law goes after her, every person testified that your daughter was a cold hearted bitch and she was nothing of a mother, so if the law is any good they will get her and put her behind bars for years.... And I promise we won't stop til they do, and watch were gonna have Adrian's names on commercials and everything one day and guess what the last name will be BARTON and you know what, I don't give a damn what you say, you will never be able to stop me so you might as well stop trying. Oh and another thing Leah wouldn't give me the outfit I asked for, its ok we got it back and same with his basonet and blankets and every thing, Leah lost her storage cuz she didn't pay the bill and the owner gave all of his stuff to us for free.... Thats the only thing that this trip was worth......

Britnee just called me and told me that josh was tried and found not guilty... i think the court needs to rethink what they just did... Josh friggen admitted to doing all that to poor little adrian and then they let him off? what kind of law is that? I think this is all crap and josh needs to be in prison for A REALLY LONG TIME!! this is so stupid... obviously the trial should have been held in seattle where adrian was when he died, then maybe things could've been done right... I love you all and may God watch over you in the rest for the rest of the time in Alaska.. Love to Matt and Jamie and Britnee... I love you all so much and dont forget it!

LOSS OF INNOCENCE
GOD HAS SENT AN ANGEL TO YOU. WITH BIG BEAUTIFUL EYES AND SMILE SO BRIGHT. EVERYDAY HE LIGHTS UP YOUR LIFE. YOU SMILE AT HIM HE SMILES BACK. NOTHING IN THE WORLD CAN TOUCH THIS LOVE.
BUT SOMETHING GOES WRONG. AND HE HAS TO GO. WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THIS POOR SOUL. WELL SIT BACK AND KET ME TELL YOU. UNDER IT ALL WHAT HAS GONE WRONG.
SOMEONE HAS TAKEN HIS INNOCENCE AWAY. THE CRIES THAT NO ONE HEARD, THE PAIN THAT NO ONE COULD STOP. THE ANGER THAT TOOK IT AWAY. BUT HOW COULD SOME BE THAT ANGRY. HOW COULD SOMEONE CAUSE PAIN TO THE INNOCENCE GOD GAVE. ALL THAT HE LONGED FOR WAS LOVE AND ATTENTION. ALL HE WANTED WAS AFFECTION. HE WAS PUT ASIDE LIKE A TOY THAT A CHILD DIDNT WANT ANYMORE. THE PAIN THAT HE FELT WHEN HE WANTED LOVE.
NEVER AGAIN WILL HE FEEL THE WARMTH OF A HUG OR THE JOY OF A KISS. THAT WAS GIVEN IN PLACE AN ANGRY FIST. HE WILL NO LONGER LONG FOR LOVE OR LONG FOR AFFECTION. BECAUSE HIS INNOCENCE WAS LOST FOR HIS OWN PROTECTION
NOW ISNT THIS SAD THAT GOD HAD TO TAKE HIM BACK HOME AND HIS DADDY HED TO BE LEFT ALL ALONE. BECAUSE OF THE ANGER FROM SOMEONE WHO DIDNT CARE. HIS DADDY HAD NO CHANCE TO FEEL HIS LOVE HIS DADDY HAD NO CHANCE TO HOLD HIM CLOSE AND KISS HIS CHEEK AND SHOW HIM LIFE WITHOUT PAIN. BUT DONT FEAR DEAR FATHER. YOUR SON IS SAFE. HE IS AT HOME WHERE GOD RESERVED HIS PLACE......

I just want to know if there is anything we can do to get Leah in jail. I live in Ketchikan and have been keeping up with the trial and I just don't understand why she isn't in jail. I am the mother of three little girls and I know when there is something wrong with my babies. She had to have known. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help, my number is in the phone book. I was also on jury duty this month and I'm sorry I didn't get picked for this trial because I would have made sure Josh paid big time. Matt and Jamie, you guys are so brave to go through all of this. I really believe your precious little Adrian is watching over you everyday, so know that even though you can't see him, he is always with you. God bless, and please call if you need anything at all.

To Adrians loving family;

My heart is aching listening to how cruel his mother, who should not be able to ever have children again, could be towards such a precius child. I am glad that his daddy was able to spend time with him before he went to heaven. I believe that Josh and, I am gonna call her Leah she doesn't deserve to be called a mom, should have to go through everything that poor Adrian had to go through. They should just keep in mind that it will come back on both of them and I hope that it does 100 times worse. Matt be strong, stand proud of such a beautiful baby boy, and just remember that you are daddy and josh could never compare to you. Be strong and remember that he is now being taken care of by God and I will keep you in my heart and my prayers To the jurors in the court room put these two heartless people where they belong behind bars, fix him so he can't have kids, and tie her so she will never have children again. Be strong Matt

I have been reading your trial updates and I have to tell you that there is no way somebody could be that stupid. When you have a baby they give you all kinds of stuff that says never shake a baby. Josh and Leah weren't that dumb, they are just didn't care about Adrian and should have never had the chance to have such a beautiful little angel. I live here in Ketchikan and every since I heard about this case on the news I can't stop thinking about it. I think the reason why is because Adrian didn't have to die, if that cold hearted bitch Leah would have just sent Adrian to the people that loved him. Matt I think you are a very mature guy and Adrian is very lucky to have you as a father. I'm know that going through this trial has got to be hard but Adrian is looking down on you and he is so proud just like all of us our. I'm praying that justice will be served. Remember that because of your love for Adrian, and your braveness, he will never be forgotten. God bless you and your family

Adrian's family,

I am sorry for your loss, I know there are no words which will heal your pain, just keep in mind that Josh will face his Maker someday and justice will be served. What he (and maybe Leah) did is horrible and completely uncalled for. A child needs love, not hate and Adrian will get plenty of love in the hands of Jesus. My prayers are with you.

I just wanted you and your family to know I was thinking of you. I found this site on accident but it has touched my heart and made me ache for you. I am deeply sorry for the terrible loss of your son. I have lost many people near and dear to me in my young life and I know all too well the pain, hurt, resentment, anger, and guilt that comes with the tragedy of death. I found this poem years ago and wanted to share it with you. I also read that you mentioned you might want to become a registered nurse. FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! Grow from tragedy. I never thought I would be able to live after the losses I have experienced, but I underestimated myself. I will graduate from nursing school in two weeks. My mother, grandmother, nor the child I should be holding now will be there for this joyous occasion. Yet I have prevailed, I am accomplishing my dreams. I just want you to know you can too. Time heals all things. You will never "get over" this tragedy, but you can grow from it and learn to live your life to the fullest. The memory of Adrian Cole will be with you every day for the rest of your life. You have done a wonderful job of cherishing his memory. My prayers are with you and your family.


"A Child Of Mine"

My Dearest Family
"I'll lend you for a while a child of mine," He said.
"For you to love thee while he lives and
mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years,
or twenty-two or three,
But will you, till I call him back,
take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
and should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay;
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over in
My search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
not think the labor vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call
to take him back again?"

I fancied that I had heard them say,
"Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
the risk of grief we run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known,
forever grateful stay;
But should the angels call for him
much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand."

Matt: I am so sorry to read the tragedy that life has bestowed upon you at a young age. You are very lucky to have such a wonderful mother who has dedicated her life to make sure Little Adrian's life will be remembered by all. May the peace your son gave you while he was earthly bound, sustain you until we are all gathered once again to meet the Lord. In due time, the evil that man does, will eventually be the final demise of their own lives. Have faith Matt, life has a way of taking care of the predators that walk the earth. Adrian's life will be a legacy for you to carry on.

Children are special gifts from heaven. So tender and sweet. Inocent, and loving. They don't hurt a soul, they don't hate, they don't lie, cheat or steal. They mean no harm. They have faith like no other, they have genuine smile's. Maybe God was protecting little Adrian from all those things. He will always be a little inocent baby, up in heaven with God. Amen!!!!!

I just read everything on your website about little Adrian, I am truly sorry for your loss. Just think though, Adrian doesn't have to go through all the worlds downs, and stressful things, he's with God, and he must feel very happy up there. One day you will all be with him again in heaven. I pray that God will bless you all.
May I ask one question? Why was Adian in the hospital in the first place? Did he just get sick? And what about Adrians mother? I am just asking these things because I read eveything on here and I am just interested about the other stuff. Again, I am truly sorry for your loss. God bless you all..........

Matt,
I just read the information that was posted about your son. I am so sorry. I am going to be 17 soon, and I can sympathize with you, because I was got pregnant earlier this year. My baby would have been two weeks old this week, but one night my boyfriend and I got into a fight and he started hitting me in the stomach. The result was a miscarriage. I was in a deep dark hole for so long, until I realized that I didn't do anything wrong. When I broke up with him I told him about me losing the baby, but he didn't say anything. I learned that I was better without him. After the break up, I didn't have anything to say to him, and couldn't bear to look at him or even be in the same room with him. I soon discovered his mother didn't even know about the baby until she heard the "rumors" about my miscarriage.

I hope that Josh gets what he deserves, and he never has the chance to do this to anybody else. I don't know how anybody could think of hurting anybody, much less a poor defenseless baby. Adrian didn't do anything to Josh, and obviously he couldn't handle the pressure of dealing with a child.

Leah should have sent Adrian to you in April like she said she thought about. If she doubted her abilities as a parent she should at least given Adrian to you to see if things worked out better with him being in your custody. Leah obviously has some things in life to figure out, and hopefully she learns a lesson from this tragedy. She should have been more protective of your child, and kept him away from the whoever she thought might endanger him.

I hope that you are doing well, considering the circumstances, and that you will be able to continue school and make the best out of your life. I would love to hear more details about the trial as they occur. If you can please notify me a good source to find updated information throughout the trial. Just remember to take it a day at the time, and only worry about the present. What will happen will happen, and don't blame yourself for any of this. It was not your fault.

I know that we don't know each other, and have never met, but if I can offer any support please let me know I will be glad to help.

Sincerely,
Kristina Roberts

In loving memory:
Adrian Cole Fackrell--March 5- April 28
Matthew Kyle Roberts--died June 18, 2002

I can' t sit here and say that I know how you feel, because I don't.. I have a 4 month old myself.. I am only 17 years old.. i almost lost her because her heart rate was dropping during delivery.. I know that you are hurt, and I can't feel your pain. I know that things will only get better for you. You go on and get your college degree, because I plan to go ahead and get mine.. Adrian is so lucky to have a sweet father like you that wants him.. My little girls father doesn't even want her. He will have to answer to god for his actions. You just remember that all things are in Gods hand, and he makes things happen for a reason.. One day when you are older, you are going to have the most beautiful children. Adrian can't be replaced, but God stil has someone special waiting to be loved by you and to call you daddy... May God Bless you and your family.. I will pray for you and your family..
Love Always,

I feel what was done should never be brought to the pain and emotions of any body.
what ever could have possed these people/ children to have done this to a helpless infant has lost there ways and has no emotion except for anger, and i feel sorry for the love and sanity that they seem to have lost.i hope what has been done will be evenged in the fullest extent because if they are presenting themselvs in this manner now,i prosume that the proublem can only escelate to something worse if it is possible.

Hello to all my family imediate and otherwise extended. Nice job on this site Jamie , Matt and all those who have supported this cause, this Memorial. I am Adrian Coles' proud Grandfather C John Fackrell and I would like to say that I hope this site will inspire both a memorial to my beloved son, and an awareness to all those out there that you do not shake,jolt, hit, or treat roughly any infant. They are very fragile and tender, and not made for roughness but only admiration and love. Do not hit or abuse children. We hear this time and time again in the media and talk shows etc.. Well this time and every time somewhere with someone these messages hit HOME more than you ever could imagine. A beautiful soul I whatched in ignorance and hope! An inocent soul I whatched dismayed at the sight of my eyes confused by the sobering image of my son. How? What? Why? and finally Who? I caught the suspect, I investigated personaly and do conclude that the old vipers of ignorance compounded by jealousy was my grandsons' demise. No fault or blame ever justified, no violence ever should have been compromised at WHAT a little "cute little babys' cry." It is true that he has to now be in a better place this is our hope and thought. How can it not be for thiws world can surely be cruel and create cruelness unlike any other it seems as though the very nature of our planet feed off of it. Yet as humans we know better than to take life especialy that of inocence and even more that found in the image of esthetic miricle our little infant Adrian. Matt: Jamie: you know how I feel and hope the best for you both always. Thanks for keeping in touch and lets forever do so. I have lost and gained a Sun bright and shining peaple are both. Peace.

When I went to Seattle for Adrian I didn't expect to see what I did and I wish that my family never had to go threw all that pain and heartache because someone can't handle a little angel.

Life is not as it should be. It is not how we percieve it to be, and it is most certainly not how we want it to be. But with out hate, there would be no peace, love, or anything. We are very sorry for the tragedy that has happened in your family.

This story is really touching. I think that the parents of the baby are very brave to have gone through this at such a young age. May God's peace be with all the people who are suffering over this loss.

This was a very touching story. No one deserves to die in that way, especially such a small child who was completely defenseless. I just hope that whoever did do this does get punished for it. Personally, I think they should be beaten to death, so they can see just how it feels. I don't know what else to say, really... except that I feel awful when I hear about things like this and you just wonder what kind of a person it takes to do something like that. I hope that they are suffering inside for what they've done, and I hope that they know that it will all come back to them eventually. But I am sure that Adrian is in a much better place now and no one can hurt him anymore. Good luck with the trials and I hope that Adrian's mother and her boyfriend get all that they deserve, and more.

im so sorry this has happened to this baby... i have been there, with my son and his girlfriend. my son is now doing 8 yrs for hurting his son and his girlfriend got off and got him back. now i worry each and every day for his safty and well being. but i have no control and i dont get to see him eather...people need to beaware of what is happening around them. take notice to your neighbor kids. do they look differnt, act different, sound different... ask them if they are ok... and for gods sake call your local DHS to check up on any child that u feel is being abused... "please help to save our children"they are our future....dont let them grow up in bad situations abuse... or they will teach their kids the same life.. this is no way to live.... teach our kids about GOD.... love to adrian and his grandparents who are tring to cope... with their loss.. he is in a better place now... and feels your love... and is all around you.... think about him always... cry for him if the need arises.. pray for him always..he loves you just as much as you love him........

There are no words to describe the actions of the person who did this!
I firmly believe in God, but I also believe in the law, and I believe that this person will get what they deserve, if not by our Law............By Gods!

Adrian is in a much better place now, you must remember that, and know that you will see him again, it may be awhile but don't worry, he has already made lots of new friends I'm sure.
This Memorial Website was a great idea, and a great job on it too!
I am going to add it to my favorites, and stay posted on what goes on in the courtroom.

Your teardrops hold his name,
As they trickle down your face.
Precious angel resting now.
In God's care and loving embrace.

Heartfelt thoughts are with you and your's Matt, as you all go through this terrible time of loss and sadness. I wish you had been able to meet your son under better conditions. But please take comfort in knowing that he would have felt your presence by his side. And loved you for that. He will be with you always. God Bless!
