Our Mission

To comfort, inspire, and witness to people dealing with hurt, specifically due to the loss of a child, and help them understand that God loves them and desires a relationship with them.

To help people understand that God can say no and still be a good loving Father.

 

Our Story

It all started with one child. Josiah Andrew DeLorenzo entered this life on Christmas Day at 4:24 p.m. into the arms of his loving daddy and mommy, Stephan and Leslie Perry DeLorenzo. Josiah passed from this life at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 25, 2015 on Christmas Day in his daddy and mommy’s arms at the Norton Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. Josiah weighed four pounds nine ounces and was thirteen and a half inches in length. Josiah’s mommy said it best, our sweet little boy joined Jesus in heaven today. He never suffered and actually smiled at us a few times. He is going to a place where he is loved and we are looking forward to joining him there one day! Not for a moment has our God forsaken us, He is good all the time!

  • Found out Josiah is Coming!

    We were very excited in the spring of 2015 to find out Josiah was coming, our first son. Shortly after we were told that medically speaking he had very little chance of survival.

  • Josiah is Born and Enters Heaven

    After months of an emotional rollercoaster Josiah arrives and blesses us with 15 minutes in our arms of life. Those 15 minutes changed our lives forever.

  • Eden Enters Heaven

    October of 2016 we found out we were pregnant again! At a regular scheduled check-up it was obvious to the doctor that baby Eden would be miscarried. Eden entered Heaven shortly after that and joined Josiah.

  • Josiah's Journey Begins

    Our journey has only brought us closer to a personal relationship with Jesus. We knew God could use this pain in our lives to bless others with love and compassion. God laid on our hearts 1 Corinthians 1:3-4, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”

how can we help you?

We are here to answer questions and talk with you. We want to hear from you.

I would highly encourage all Pastors to invite Stephan and Leslie Delorenzo to speak and minister at your church. Their story and ministry would be a great blessing and encouragement to those that lost a child. I have known Pastor Stephan for three years, and he is truly a man of God. Their heart is for those who are grieving to find hope and encouragement after a loss. Pastor Stephan and Leslie have a lot to offer; please consider partnering with them as they fulfill their call with Josiah’s journey. I promise you won’t regret it!
