My husband and I have a beautiful 15 month old little girl and I recently gave birth to identical twin boys. While we're thrilled about our growing family, we haven't had the easiest of times caring for all of them. As if having three kids under 2 years wasn't tough enough!...One of the twins, Jaxson, was born with a heart defect called Scimitar Syndrome in addition to congestive heart failure which makes it hard for him to breathe and eat, not to mention pump blood effectively throughout his little body. In addition, he was born with only one functioning lung, all of which will require open heart surgery in the next year or so. On top of all of that, he has a tethered spinal cord which may also effect growth and require surgical intervention. Both boys spent about 2 weeks in the NICU and racked up over $100,000 worth of medical bills, in addition to the daily medication regiments , visits to the cardiologist, neurosurgeon, developmental specialists/geneticist, pediatrician etc. As you can imagine it all adds up, and continues to be a burden on our family.
My husband and I both work, and I am also a full time student. We are doing the best we can for our children but currently rely on friends and family to help with bills, groceries, mortgage etc. We would truly appreciate any help that may come our way, so that we can provide our kids with food/formula/diapers and of course pay for current and future medical bills.
Jaxson is the sweetest little guy, and despite all the cards that he's been dealt, he's still a smiley happy baby most of the time.
Thank you so much for your kindess, it is very much appreciated, and will be payed forward as soon as we are able!
