Meet Kaden, a five year old boy who beat 5% odds of survival to begin growing into a beautiful young man. Kaden has a rare bone condition called osteogenesis imperfecta. He was given only months to live, so his parents’ doctor suggested abortion, because his chances of survival were near impossible. His parents bet on the 5% and refused to give up on him. Now, five years later, he amazes doctors every day.
Kaden’s brittle bones have broken 40 times so far, and he’s had many surgeries. Like Elijah Price in the movie Unbreakable, who had the same condition, he could have given into fear and bitterness, but instead he has great love for other people, is fearless even in his condition, and has dreams of becoming something great! His survival alone qualifies him as a superhero in the hearts of so many, but his attitude is even more powerful, and an inspiration to all of us. The full video is here.

Yesterday morning, Oak Creek Assembly of God hosted in on Thursday for it’s 2000 members, and invited me to participate with a book signing. It was an amazing success! We sold dozens and dozens of hardcover books at the table, and the church bookstore sold out of their stock too!
Thank you so much to the staff at OCAG for giving us authors the environment to display our work, and support our efforts. And thank you to everyone who came to the table and expressed so muh support! I am truly grateful beyond belief.
If you missed out on a signed copy, just request one here, and I’ll contact you about payment and shipment. I appreciate each of my little superhero readers and their parents!
MILWAUKEE — There are more than 2,000 children in foster care any given day in Milwaukee, and less than 600 foster homes. A Milwaukee-area foster mom and nurse just wrote a book she hopes will resonate with every family about conquering your fears.
The new children’s book just published out of Waukesha is called “Superhero Kid in Training” by Kate Dickinson. She shared the challenges of being a foster mom inspired her to write a relatable story about overcoming the fear of riding a bike.
Dickinson also used her experience as a nurse who has seen children wrestle with complicated emotions.
