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...

Big Brother Maxton!

So, we found out on Friday that we are expecting again! Tentative due date is Sept. 25th. I am very excited, yet terrified all at the same time. :-)

We decided to go ahead and share the news with everyone because we could certainly use the prayers and good thoughts. I know that our newest "soybean" (because he was conceived using soy- if you are having trouble getting pregnant, let me know because I am confident the soy helped...) has the best group of angels watching over him. i don't know what God's plan for this pregnancy is, but I pray that come Sept. we will be bringing home a beautiful baby! I just wanted to share our good news with you all so that you can call be praying....

Congrats on the good news!! Sending many good thoughts and prayers your way. We are having difficulty getting pregnant. We just passed our 9th month. Doesn't soy contain estrogens? Is that what helps?

CONGRATULATIONS!! Exciting, hopeful and scary are some fun but tough emotions, I know. We serve a awesome God and I'm so thankful for the peace He gives us that He is in control. I look forward to walking this journey with you. And, it looks like we may not be too far apart. I see Maxton was in Vanderbilt. I'm about 2 hrs south of Nashville. Again, congratulations!

Congrats, I'm so happy for y'all. Tell David I said hello and to give us a call next time y'all are in Nashville. Karen

I just found your blog today, I seem to be good luck to bloggers like you. I have found several blogs of people who lost a baby and then the day I find them they announce they are pregnant again or that they just had a new healthy baby. I will send some prayers up for your little soybean, so I'm guessing that you just believe that it is a boy, and don't know for sure?

We lost our baby girl Gracie, Dec. 10 to trisomy 18. I can see how terrifying it will be to get pregnant again but I hope to anyway.

Stephanie said...

Much love,

I've been out of the CDH community for a while so I just found out you are expecting.

Thanks for sharing the news, keep us posted.
