Hello Friends and Family,
A few nights ago our sweet Charlotte left us way too soon. Words can't describe our heartache over losing her but we now have an angel watching over us.
Thank you all for your support through this most difficult time.
The Rapp Family


Dear Friends & Family,

As you know we recently welcomed sweet Charlotte into our family.  We are thrilled to have a daughter and Emmett is enjoying loving on her.  About halfway through my pregnancy we learned that Charlotte’s heart did not form correctly in the first 8 weeks of life in utero. The left side is underdeveloped because of a defect called Atrioventricular Septal Defect.  This is extremely rare and the cause is unknown. Babies born with this condition need a series of 3 surgeries in the first few years of life to make the right side of the heart do the work that both sides normally do. With all of this we are anticipating several hospital stays at Rocky Mountain Children’s Hospital in Denver.   We will also be traveling back and forth to Denver often for follow up doctor's appointments.  With all of this will come travel costs: food, gas, etc. and of course medical costs that we weren't anticipating. Her first surgery will be this November, the second in the spring, and the third anywhere from age 2-3.  Because each surgery is taking place during a different calendar year, we will be meeting our max-out-of-pocket 3 years in a row, meaning thousands of dollars in medical bills for years to come.  We truly appreciate and are thankful for any help you are able to give. We are in great hands through Rocky Mountain Children's Hospital and the doctors are all very optimistic about what they can do for little miss Charlotte. 

 Thank you all so much,

Rachel, Robert, Emmett, & Charlotte Rapp
