Valentino's Surgery Fund

Our beautiful Valentino was born December 21, 2013.  A Christmas baby..!  He was in a rush not to miss Christmas because once Katerina went into labor, he was out within one hour.! He was born so beautiful because he did not have to go through a long labor.. and Mamma was happy as well.  Only a few days later at a routine pediatric visit did we learn that he had a rare condition called Craniosynostosis.  We were so surprised by the news and not knowing anything about this condition we started reading all that we could about it.  Unfortunately surgery is required to correct this condition, and as you can imagine we are nervous and stressed to have our baby go through this... But we are being positive and hoping for the best.  He is a very happy and gorgeous little boy and we hope that soon enough this surgery will be a distant memory.!  Any positive thoughts, prayers and donations are much appreciated.  Thank you so much.
