Baby Maverick

This blog was created to keep family and friends updated on what's going on with the pregnancy, birth, and surgical plan for Maverick. We'll also be able to keep everyone updated during his surgery and recovery and hopefully be able to show you some cute pictures of him, Maddie, Carter and Chloe along the way.

This was the original intent; however, when we started this blog we had no idea the twists and turns our lives would take. Our sweet baby Maverick was born September 12, 2008 with Transposition of the Great Arteries, ASD, and VSD. We expected to have a baby boy to bring home three to four weeks after his surgery. He had numerous complications after his arterial switch and fought through many that would have taken the life from an adult. He passed away February 24, 2009 - without ever coming home.

This blog is now a place I share my feelings, work through the grief, remember Maverick, and try to make sense out of our life without him. I hope in doing so I am giving a name and a face to babies everywhere born with congenital heart defects.

Baby Mav

He didn't know where to look..... Me or the mobile!!! These from today were all sent from Holly. This makes me want to say a big "Thank You" to all of you who sat with Maverick. He was so blessed to have so many people who loved him. He loved to have the attention, and to have someone there to wind that mobile! We are so blessed to have all of you in our lives.

He just warms your heart. You can feel his precious wings and loving spirit. There was so much expression in that flawless face and those gorgeous eyes. Oh how I wish we knew God's plans and what He is thinkng. These pictures are treasures for you now.
