Graves Family Welcomes Newborn Son

It has been two years since an Elkhorn couple lost their two year old son to an alligator attack while on vacation at the Walt Disney World resort in Orlando, Florida.

As they continue to cope with the tragedy, Matt and Melissa Graves on Wednesday announced announced the birth of a son.  

“We are happy to announce the birth of our son, Christian Lane Graves. Although we know the pain of losing Lane will never go away, we feel God has blessed our family with this precious miracle of life. We know Ella and Christian have their brother, Lane, watching over them as their guardian angel.

The love and support we continue to receive from so many is greatly appreciated, but we ask that our desire for privacy continue to be honored.”

His parents have kept his memory alive through the Lane Thomas Foundation dedicated in honor of their son and to help families of children needing life-saving organ transplants.
