His grandmother Karen recently reached out to Fandom In Stitches about this special little boy because she's looking to make Payden a Blue's Clues quilt.
We originally posted about the Blue's Clues request here, here and here.
Payden was born with a birth defect virus known as Congenital Cytomegalovirus or CMV. This virus is the reason he is headed towards his second transplant as well as the cause of his other disabilities and health complications.
Payden spends much of his time in the hospital and something as simple as his very favorite show being on a blanket is a tremendous comfort to him; especially as his 2nd liver transplant approaches. He has many disabilities and challenges, one of them being he is almost completely non-verbal and has had trouble learning sign language but the few signs he knows he uses to tell us he wants Blue's Clues! We were blessed as a family and able to celebrate his 5th birthday on May 30th, this was a milestone no one thought he would ever reach. I was just so touched when my mom told me about your website and the great effort you all have put into this, thank you from the very bottom of my heart!! And Payden's too! I have included a picture of Payden and his best friend a stuffed duck he calls 'Bo' because it reminds him of the duck named Boris from Blue's Clues!
A number of you have already reached out to us and offered to make and donate Blue's Clues blocks for Payden's quilt. His family is happy to receive your blocks and we are happy for you to help!
Below is a list of our current Blue's Clue's patterns. If you would like to make one or more of these blocks for Payden's quilt, please comment below with the block or blocks you'd like to make. Please include your contact information with your comment or email us so we can send you the address you need to mail the blocks to.
