I started this blog before Claire was born to keep our family and friends updated about her CDH. It was a great tool to have while we were up at the NICU because it kept me from having to make so many phone calls and allowed everyone to see pictures. Since then it has become an "online baby book" (I love going back and reading my old posts and remembering all of Claire's major milestones), has kept our out-of-state family in the loop, has raised awareness about the congenital diaphragmatic hernia birth defect, and has provided hope and information to expectant CDH parents who stumbled across it via search engines.
But now that Claire is two years old and doing so well, it seems like a good cutoff point. So I'm going to stop posting here and start a new family blog instead. Please update your bookmarks to http://williamsfamilytn.blogspot.com if you'd like to keep reading about our wonderfully exciting life :-) If not, thank you for keeping up with Claire these past few years and for all of your kind comments.
I'm going to keep this blog available to the public so that future CDH families can find it, and am going to get it printed into a book for Claire to have when she is older.
