The Cord


We are connected, Christopher and I,

By an invisible cord not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord that connects us at birth,

This cord can't be seen by any on Earth.

This cord does its work right from the start,

It binds us togehter attached to my heart.

I know that its there, though no-one can see,

The invisible cord from Christopher to me.

The strength of this cord is hard to describe,

It can't be destroyed, it can't be denied.

Its stronger than any cord man could create,

It withstands any test, can hold any weight.

though you are gone and you're not here with me,

The cord is still there but no-one can see.

It pulls at my heart, I am bruised, I am sore,

But this cord is my lifeline as never before.

I'm thankful that God connects us this way,

A parent and child, death can't take away.



Christopher, we will meet again


If love could undo a wrong,

You'd be home where you belong.

The choices that were made,

Caused you to rest where you were laid.

You were young and didn't know,

We'd lose you and miss you so.

Too young to really understand,

So God reached out His mighty hand.

Now you hear the Angles sing,

And you don't want for anything.

You're finally safe from earthly harms,

Wrapped up in God's loving arms.

Although I miss you everyday,

I know heavens where you'll stay.

But someday Christopher, we'll meet again,

When I walk through the gate to heaven!!

To Paula, Happy belated Mother's Day. I don't know the deal with Christopher's birth mom and it's not my business, and I have never met you or your family, but I read your article above and it is so emotional to me. I think you done a terrific job with the help of  raising Christopher, he seemed to be a very cheerful,  well loved , and behaved little boy and I see from the photos that his father loved him and his other boys very much!! I wish that I could view the video that you put on the web but it would only rip my heart into peices, and I will be upset and angry all over again.  I'm sorry for the hurt that you all have to endure on a daily basis, but remember this you all are not alone in this, there are so many people out here that has never met you all and are feeling the pain as well.  I, myself sometimes have trouble enjoying life enjoyments because I think about Christopher and I feel like it's not fair and I start crying.  Not a single day goes by that I don't think of him, and talk to him through prayer. I truly believe that spiritually God had already took his angel home so that he would not not hurt and suffer while in the hands of those monsters, he was there physically but not spiritually, and when I think of that it helps me to get through the day. I just don't see God allowing his precious little angel enduring torture, and agony like that. I have a 4 year old and I am much more protective of him than ever before. I don't trust anyone now, because predators they comes in all colors, shapes, and sizes. I hope that not a day goes by  those evil devils don't think about what they done to that innocent baby, and I hope that it will haunt them down for the rest of their days, God is going to take care of them in a way that no man could ever think of doing.  But, our little Christopher is now with our Heavenly Father, and will be safe for enternity!! Love you all, and I hope that you had a very blessed Mother's day, and more to come!!

Christopher.  Not a day goes by tht I don't think about you.  I wake up every morning and look at your pictures hanging on the wall and wish that there was some way I could bring you back home.  I can still hear your laugh and see your smiling face.  Its so hard not having you home where you belong...home with me, your daddy and little brother.  I miss seeing you running around acting crazy and playing with Jordan.  He may be just a little baby but I know he misses you too.  Nathan and Austin miss you so much too.  They draw you pictures all the time.


Today is the first mother's day with you not here and it breaks my heart.  I know that I was not your "birth" mother but you know just as much as I do that I loved you so very much.  In my heart, you ARE my son and no one can ever take that away from me.  No one can ever take your place in my heart and I cherish the moments that we shared together. 


I know you went threw alot when you were here on earth but God wouldn't let a special boy like you leave for nothing.  I think he wanted you to help other parents be aware of the dangers.  There are so many people who love you Christopher and you will NEVER be forgotten.


Love and Miss you Always,

Paula Anderson

My shared memorie for christopher happened on march 8th when he dissapeared, from that point on through the week of his search the first thing I said was that I hope nobody hurt that baby...Then one week later after he went missing the exact thing happened that I had asked in so many prayers not to,someone hurt him,I was devistated,hurt beyond words that could explain,I felt like I was the one who had been violated! My heart jumped to my throwt, I beleive at the time my heart actually cried tears! All's I could ask was...How could something like this happen to that presious baby boy? Why did it happen? And who or what on earth could ever look in that precious face and hurt him? Then I autimatically knew all of my own answers,evil was on the prowl at the time,the devil set out for the most tramatic heart break known to a parent,he wanted to break alot of hearts and with that being said he completed that task with out a doubt,However one thing he didnt plan on was this tragedy bringing so many strangers togeather in love and comfort without ever even knowing christopher! One mission the devil failed at was the fact that so many people love when he wants us all to hate each other, he also failed because so many people will be trying to live for christ so that they are sure that thay can one day see christopher again in heaven, in other words the devil lost alot of souls that he expected to control in HELL!!! I know foer sure that he will never have my soul,christopher is much more inportant than the pleasures of SIN! I LOVE HIM soooooo much that I will never risk reuniting with him in heaven because of sinful pleasures,the devil lost in that aspect! Christopher brought so much love to people all over the world in his six young years than 100 adults in a lifetime and I beleive with all my heart that the sex offender laws will be changed due to what christopher endured,sex offenders will not stand a chance once the laws change and I say this with faith and my strongest beleif in GOD that justice will prevail for christopher and it will prevail so many ways that we cant right now even imagine! The lord is so proud of christopher as he sits abroad his strong large shoulder,the lord is smileing down on all that love his precious angel and all that fight for christopher's justice,However the lords justice will be a million times worse for the people that hurt him,I gaurantee you my friends that once the lord has set his punishment they will all wish and beg in screaming voices that they had never touched a hair on his head,and I wish I could be a fly on the walls of HELL when their punishments are given!!! To every single one of christophers family,mother,father,stepmom,grandmothers,grandfathers,siblings,cousins,aunts and uncles... you all cherish the memories that youve all shared with christopher,the laughs,cries,huggs,kisses,holidays,good and bad days,cherish them all for one day the time will come when you will again be happy,even if it seems seemingly impossible, the lord has a plan for all of you and remember...Today may be the storm but the sun will surely shine again for all of you and christopher will always be with you everywhere you go and everything you do he will be right there for you,so make christopher proud and make his maker above proud and he will open the paths up through life for you,just love and trust in him and you will never go wrong,trust me I know I am an example,the lord was trully there for me witheverything Iv'e been through I know he was the one to bring me through it all and I have nothing but love and respect for my heavenly father,creater of all and christopher was created even more special to have made us all love another human being that we dont even know to love him as mush as we do!!! GOD is proud and the devil has failed! To Mike barrios,everytime you start to cry for missing christopher just look in the mirror and you will see him because he looks just like YOU! He lives in YOU! I LOVE your son so much that I dedicate the rest of my life to praying for you and praying and talking to christopher until my time comes then I know I will be in BLISS when I see him clinging to the lord in heaven! He is trully a special presious angel and noone will ever take his place,for he is branded in my heart forever I LOVE HIM and this is my shared memorie in the name of Christopher micheal Barrios jr. AMEN!

Dear Christopher, I have been saying my prayers since March 8. I will continue with the prayers till my time to leave this earth comes along. I will never forget that golden smile of yours. That way you look into the camera. You are such a beautiful boy.


You have given me another reason to leave this world in peace when my time comes. You will be the first one that I will look up when I eventually make it to heavens. You have pushed my grandmother and father to second and third place. You will be forever my Hero.


I fully realize that you are with the Lord and no harm will ever come to you again. I know that the angels are all playing with you. I know that you are better off now than any of us in this earth. How I wish that I could had taken your place, so that you could be back here with your family.


Rest in peace little man, you will never leave my broken heart. You will be forever in my mind and heart.

Christophers death really devastated alot of people.  I felt like he was a part of me.  I  have a 5 yr. old son and I can only imagine what you're going thru.  Just know that he is in a much better, safer place, looking down on everyone daily.  He no longer has to struggle. He can be the happy little boy that he was daily with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  My heart and prayers go out to the entire family.

*Christopher baby- Until you meet your family again in Heaven, my grandmother (Uleathia Roberts) will take perfect care of you.

Always Loved!!

The parents of Christopher, you all created something beautiful, something unique, and I know that you were proud to have him in your life, may have been for a very short period of time, but he was a SUPERHERO, and for thousands of us we have so much love in our hearts for your son as if he was our own.  I love this little boy, and has never met little Christopher but my heart  aches everyday all day long for him.  I don't understand it, and probably never will understand how something so horrifying could happen to him or any other child.  Christopher I want you to know that not a day go by that I don't shed tears for you and your family, I feel so much love in my heart and soul for you, as if you were one of my own.  I can only imagine the hurt and pain that your parents are feeling, but nothing as bad as what this little angel endured.  I promise you little angel I am going to do my part in making sure that justice is done, and to know that you did not die in vain.  God had a plan for your life and only God knows "why" but I know you are in heaven rejoicing, singing, and having fun with God and all of his little angels.  Christopher I look at your beautiful pictures everyday, and I have noticed that there is something very unique about you, something that can't be explained.  You were a special boy, one of God's very own angel that was sent here to make difference, now that your work is done the Lord called his baby home to rest!!  Christopher I could turn back the hands of time I would have taken your place, so that YOU can live, I would have taken the pain and suffering for you, and for any other child!!!


R.I.P  Christopher.

Christopher I did not know you but I feel as though I have known you forever.You have touched my heart and I LOVE someone I have never met physically. I think of you at least 3 times a day. I have 5 children and working on 1 or 2 more my nephew is your age and looks just like you. So i have no choice but to think of you when they all want to play outside. My children are no longer aloud outside without an adult. The monsters that live in this world need to suffer and endore 100 times more greater pain then you suffered. May my God bless you and take you under his arm and shower you with LOVE. You may be gone but you will NEVER be forgotten and I pray that you will be on the other side of the pearly gates waiting on me. Because I will be longing to meet you.

My father passed 12/4/06 I lost a baby 4/12/07. I pray they know you and they are comforting you as I would if I was there. Love you forever and always. i will never forget you.......  Love Michelle Norris Jacksonville, Florida

I never got to meet you Christopher, but I feel I know you now.  I never will forget you.  When I get up in the morning until I lay my head down at night you are on my mind.  Such a innocent, precious baby boy.  I wish that I could take your place. But

I can find comfort on this rocky road of emotions, and that is knowing that physically you are not here but the spirit that lived in you is alive and well with our Lord Jesus

and when he comes to this earth again you will have a new heavenly body. I can't wait to meet you in heaven Christopher. I know you are holding the angel baby I lost in 2001. Kiss her for me. I love you.

April Keller (JCF)

I will never get to see your smile,they took that i promise you that i will fight in your name,so the next child will share that smile.You are in god's arms no one will ever hurt you again.And justice will come to your sweet smile.


Christopher was always a happy little boy who love going to play at the park with his little brother Jordan. 


We will all miss him very much and our lives will never be the same without him.  We will never forget you Christopher and Justice will be done.


Loosing Christopher was the most horrible thing that we have had to endure.  Although Christopher is no longer here with us physically, his spirit lives on in our hearts and souls forever.


Rest In Peace sweet baby, you will always be in our hearts!!
