One Year...

One year has passed since we learned our son was going to be born with a congenital heart defect. One year has passed since the doctor broke the news to two new, unsuspecting, naive parents. One year has passed since we laid in our bed, speechless, staring at the ceiling for hours, because we didn't know how to react. One year has passed since there were more questions than there were answers. One year has passed since we cried at the thought of our child needing surgery in the first few months of his life.

Today, we sit here at the hospital, Holden fresh off his third operation, doing as well as any kid could in his position. Back then it seemed like the end of the world. That seems so distant now. We couldn't be blessed with a better kid.


  1. You just made me cry. Such a special little boy.

  2. Beyond words, Trey. Holden's smile radiates all the amazing indomitable spirit that you, Nicole and Holden so obviously have.

  3. Words cannot express the heart felt joy in that you are sharing your experiences with us. You, Nicole and Holden are truly a blessing for your courage and faith. The love you have for Holden is proofed by his joyful spirit and that sunny smile. It brightens all of our lives.
