Welcome to our CaringBridge website! We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place.
Baby Girl Rawlings was diagnosed with a heart defect several months ago and they have been monitoring her weekly with ultrasounds. She had her follow up fetal echocardiogram mid July and the cardiologist determined a different heart defect that means that she would need heart surgery soon after she was born. Now Amy will need to go to Charleston to MUSC to deliver her. They will travel to Charleston this week to stay with their close friend Clair Shorter and their family until delivery. MUSC appointments are Tuesday July 24th - they will meet with pediatric cardiologist, maternal fetal medicine, and NICU determine a plan for delivery in the next week or two.
They are incredibly grateful for family and friends and the support we’ve had! Please keep this precious little family in your prayers!
UPDATE: Thank you so much for all of you who have reached out asking for ways you can help Amy and Brett through this time! What a blessing to have such amazing friends and family to support them!! We have set up a Go Fund Me account to assist with any donations you would like to send their way. You can access it here: https://www.gofundme.com/baby-girls-heart
