My Story

This space is a celebration of our son, Noah. Born 9/20/07 with spina bifida and trisomy18, Noah blessed us with his earthly presence until 6/14/08. 8 months and 25 days of a pure miracle!

We welcome you to read through our journal entries that began from the time we received Noah's diagnosis.

We also encourage you to make a donation to Noah's lasting legacy - the comprehensive infant hospice program provided by the Community Health Network.  

In his honor, when a family is in need of this service, the call that goes out within the Network is a "Code Noah."
