Today We Are Celebrating.....
.....ASHTON!!! Ashton is 8 years old today!
During my pregnancy with Ashton, the doctors told us that our child would have either Downs Syndrome or Trisomy 18, in which case he would probably die before 1 year of age. But we knew he was a gift from God, and we would love him no matter what. When little Ashton Reed came into this world, he was a perfectly-formed miracle! He had a 2-vessel umbilical cord instead of a 3-vessel cord, and he had a hole in his heart. Because of that, he has a heart murmur and we have to see a cardiologist every year, but he lives a perfectly normal, healthy life! We praise God for His goodness.
Ashton - We love you with all our hearts and we are so thankful that God has blessed our lives with you. We hope you have a wonderful 8th birthday, and many more to come!!!
