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...

2 New Angels

I wrote on my blog a few posts ago about a sweet family- the Snyder's, whose son was battling cancer. It is with much sadness that I reports that Sweet Benjamen passed away yesterday. His fight was amazing and my heart goes out to his family. Please visit Benjamen's story and send his family some love.

Also, as many of you know who follow CDH blogs, sweet baby Jackson also passed away today. Please pray for Candice and Rob and their new family as the begin their journey of grief. CDH is simply NOT FAIR!!!!

Many prayers for all those families out there facing hardship. Prayers for Max's (another CDH baby named Max!)family in Florida as he is set to be born on Monday and for Ireland's family who is about to be born as well!

If you know their address I would love to send a handkerchief to both women. I would need their full name and address.
