Let me introduce you to Amauri!
Amauri is a rough, tough, spunky little boy! His favorite person by far is his big sister Amariah and today July 1, 2020, he is 1 year old! The day I brought you into this world you brought me instant joy, instant completeness, but also instant worry. Amauri was diagnosed in utero with hypoplastic right heart, tricuspid atresia, transposition of the great arteries, aortic arch hyperplasia, and ventricular septal defect.
We were told that you were safer in utero than outside in the world.
We’ve been through 2 open heart surgeries, 3 catheterizations (two of which were emergent for blood clots), 1 emergency surgery for necrotizing enterocolitis that showed on no tests, yet here we are standing strong at one-year-old. My son is the strongest boy I know and I am so proud to be his mother. There is no greater love than the love of a parent for their children.
Amauri is my very own superman. I thank God for him every day.
Welcome to our Journey!
