I just read my friend Jesse's blog. Jesse's son Oliver was also born with Truncus Arteriosus exactly one month to the day after my Calvin passed away. I have been following Jesse's family's story since stumbling across her blog one day while I was searching for information on Truncus. We've emailed, shared hopes and fears, offered encouragement to each other when we've been down and although we've never met, I love her and think of her and Oliver daily. I stole this picture from Jesse's blog, hope you don't mind Jesse, but it's a picture of Oliver in an outfit I had originally bought for Calvin. Doesn't he look handsome??? Thank you Jesse for honoring my baby and for giving me the gift of being able to share in your journey.
