My son Peyton was born on December 29, 2010. He weighed 5 lbs and 13 oz and was 19.5 oz. He was born at 40 weeks and 4 days but his gestential age was only 35 weeks. In the hospital they identified a heart mumur which led to pulomnary stenosis and a bicuspid valve.

He was diganosed with WHS a week after he was born. In his short life we have spent most of it seeing every specialist availabe if feels like but he has been a real trooper and has done very well. So far, we have had positive results from the specialist visits but still have some to go.

Peyton is feeding very well on his own and is now up to 6 lbs 7 oz so we were very happy with his progress and hope that he continues on this path.

Thank you for the creation of this website. It has been so nice to read the stories of all of the children on the website and see the smiling faces.

    Welcome, Peyton! You sure are a handsome little boy, and your weight gain is rather exceptional if you ask me! My daughter is Kaylee, and she just turned a year old last weekend. The journey is an emotional one– I cannot lie– but you have found a support system like no other. I look forward to watching Peyton grow and thrive; you can tell by looking at his picture that he is going to surpass every expectation and simply amaze you!
