Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.

After many thoughts, prayers, advice from peers, and backs and forths we share this with all of our family, friends and friends who are family. 

Friday, March 13th, 2020 changed our lives forever. This is the day we found out we were expecting!!!! After Emily being told she couldn’t have children, we knew this baby would be a warrior from the start!

We had our first few appointments and everything was on track. Emily was labeled “extremely high risk” due to health issues and her age. So this prompted more appointments and closer watching. 

Our little miracle blessing is already a fighter.

June 4th, Emily was given the call about some test results, and given the news that she was carrying a miracle baby GIRL! 

After undergoing several more tests and ultrasounds, we have found out that she has some severe heart defects and a long road ahead of her. Everything else is on track for her so far, she growing, hitting and kicking mommy daily, and feisty. Her heart just is struggling. She has a hole In her heart, an enlarged left ventricle and one, possibly two, blockages. 

We are continuing to be monitored very closely by our team of doctors who have been amazing to us so far. We have some more major tests and ultra sounds coming up in the next few weeks that will help pave the path for the rest of her and our journey. 

She will either have surgery before she’s born, in the womb, or she will have to have surgery as soon as she’s born. 

We want to thank everyone so far for the amazing amount of support, love, guidance, calls, messages and prayers. We know we are blessed with the ABUNDANT love from all the family and friends that we have. 

Prayers are greatly appreciated!  More to come soon. Until then god bless! From here on out this is where we will keep everyone posted and updated. One spot for everyone. Will make life easier for us all. 


love always 
Cory and Emily 
And our little fighter
