Our son Maxton was diagnosed with left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) at his 19 week ultrasound. Maxton was born on 3/3/09 at Vanderbilt University. He fought hard for 18 days but earned his wings on 3/21/09. Maxton was an inspiration to many during his brief time on earth and has forever changed our lives. If your child is diagnosed with CDH, please feel free to contact us. Maxton may no longer live here on earth, but he will live forever in our hearts...

Kamryn and Brooke (twins) have arrived!!! Please pray for them. Kamryn has CDH and is relatively stable now in the NICU. Brooke doesnt have CDH but has some pneumonia so she is also in the NICU! Please pray for them. Their parents are wonderful people and they have a super big sister named Hollie who I am sure will need your prayers too!!!

Also- Please pray for Baby James. He is fighting over in the UK. He is doing well and is a CDH superstar!!!!! His parents are also wonderful. :-)

Please keep the other CDH babies- Avery, Carter A., Jaime, Gia, Ruby and any one else that is in the hospital- in your prayers.

I plan to post more tonight about letter for CDH and also about a picture I had done for Max. Check back later!!
