The family and friends of Nikolas Coltan Evans are coming together to raise surrogacy costs so that his legacy may live on in his child

My son, Nikolas Coltan, was brutally attacked defending another boy, out for a fun night, on 6th street in Austin March 27, 2009. He passed away from traumatic brain injury from this incident April 5, 2009. Nikolas had dreams of graduating college, getting married and having children. He was a wonderful son, brother, grandson, friend and boyfriend. A judge in Austin let us keep his hopes of a child being born to his family, by letting us garnish and harvest his sperm. Our family had to spend all of our savings finding the man who murdered our special boy or the surrogacy would have happened last year. I know that this may not be the ideal thing to donate to but the realization that this may not happen is heart breaking to say the least, so I must keep pushing forward and try harder. As his mother, I am still working to help him live on in a child. Not the traditional method but our boy was not a traditional boy. He is smiling down on me, wishing me the best, and guiding me to do things I never thought about doing before. He was 21 when he died. His birthday is February 18, 1988. He is missed so much by so many. Please help us make this dream come true! I worked with our beautiful heart recipient and my state senator to have a resolution made in honor of my son in our Texas state senate. I have had a HWY named in his honor in front of his and his brothers High School. I do whatever I can to promote organ donation, as our Nikolas saved 5 lives that fateful day he passed. I want to press on with our US Congress to enforce stricter penalties for one punch homicides that happen more than you realize. I will continue to work for this special person because my life will never be the same without him. Most of all, I would like to be a grandmother to Nikolas' special child and raise him or her to be just like his father, a beautiful person inside and out. I dream of making this happen but not only for me and my family but because it is one of the things I can still do for my baby boy. RIP my dear, Nikolas. Mommy loves you forever
