Baby portrait photography: 1 in 100 babies
Did you know that 1 in 100 babies are born with congenital heart disease? The stats are quite staggering. I watched 60 minutes the other night and learned that Alisa Camplin, the Olympic Gold Aerial skier had given birth to baby Finn with heart disease and died 10 days later when his aortic valve failed. A bit of the story is here – http://news.ninemsn.com.au/national/8251951/alisa-camplin-speaks-about-losing-baby.
My heart ached as baby Finn laid helplessly in the incubator, while being strapped to the life support machine. I started to bawl as soon as Alisa described her struggles, especially when she said the hardest thing was not being able to touch, caress or carry baby Finn for days since he needed to be in the incubator. However, Alisa was able to use her challenges to raise awareness and help save other expectant mothers to determine the health of their babies’ heart at an early stage. Her strength was inspiring.

So when I look at little Jayden, I realise how blessed we are to have such a healthy boy. We praise God for his protection.
Time has flew so fast! This is our cheeky monkey at 12 weeks!
