Sam’s Story

Site created on July 3, 2016


Our precious, little Sam James Grant has been a surprise to us in many more ways then one. Surprise...we're having another baby!?!! Surprise...he/she is 3 weeks early!!'s a boy!!!! Surprise he's choking!?!? Surprise...he's not breathing!?!? Surprise...your son has down syndrome?? Surprise...we are immediately rushing him to the Children's Hospital NICU??? Surprise...your son has Tracheosophageal Fistula???

Never, did we imagine any of this. No one does. It's a lot to take in.

We are so blessed with the amazing support system we have. Thank you so much for your continued prayers. We will do our best to keep you updated with our surprise blessing.

Journal entry by Jamie Grant

Several people have ask me if I've stopped updating Sam's journey. Definitely not! I am still writing, but with a different social media outlet. I started a blog to not only continue Sam's story, but also the family life of a complex child. Sam still has more obstacles to conquer and it is my hope you will continue to follow his journey at and keep him in your prayers. 
Sam Strong! Faith Over Fear!

Thank You and Lots of Love,


P.S. Feel free to share his blog!
