Cherub Connor with Santa

Now with the holidays basically here, we long to hold our sweet boy even more, dress him in cute Christmas outfits, watch him open his presents from under the tree, and even little things, like taking pictures with “Santa”. This week I was inspired by another picture like this and knew in my heart I had to do it! My husband was very excited too. As parents of an angel, you don’t get to do many “normal parent” things, but this was something we could still do and honor our beautiful son. I won’t lie, it was very emotional and as the tears were streaming down my face, I was so touched by how thoughtful and warm hearted “Santa” and his helpers were. They made this moment even more special for us. Making memories with our son isn’t something I thought we would be able to do after he passed but I was wrong. We include him in our family traditions as much as possible, and speak his name often. We are so proud of him and honoring him in small ways like this, is the least we can do. What an incredible life he served, and the impact he left is still all around us! We love you Connor Michael.

CDH International Telethon on April 19th

On CDH Awareness Day, April 19th, CDH International interviewed families, researchers, doctors and volunteers as they all shared stories, tears and trials as we raised awareness and money for Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia via live video on Facebook.  We had guests live from around the globe, truly an international day of CDH Awarneess.  The goal was to reach $50,000 over 15 hours during a live Facebook telethon.  Donors were able to make a donation by calling in, donating on any of the member's Facebook telethon fundraisers or directly on the website.  As the telethon closed, CDH International surpassed the goal bringing in $51,388.  This number is on the rise, where the final total will be announced on April 30th.  Facebook fundraisers for the telethon are still ongoing and the charity waits for any checks arriving by mail.
