Here are a few pictures that Daylen and I got to take as part of a project known as 'Project Acceptance'. The photographs were taken by Charley Green. Below is a website where you can read about the project and get to know the people on there!

Genetics testing results!
After waiting for almost 3 weeks on Daylen's genetics test...
we finally got the answers in the mail today...
We had a genetics test done on Daylen to see if there were
any chromosomal abnormalities
to see where Dave and my future stood
as far as having future children without birth defects.
Well.......the test came back.......
So what does this mean?!
It means that the next child (just like the rest of the population) only has a 1% of having a CHD
but because we already have a child part of that 1%
it puts our chances at a tiny 2%
I'll take that 2% chance over any other number that it could have been
if Daylens's CHD was genetically formed.
