More than a smile

My baby will be ONE in one week!

I've been thinking back a year ago when we were awaiting his grand arrival. The days lasted forever and the nights were even worse! The not knowing when killed me itself! And here we are one speedy quick year later! I think about Hudson's birth day often and even read over his birth story many times. It's such a special day! And I would relive it over and over again if I could. I miss my tiny new baby...

I started thinking about Hudson's first birthday when he was 7 months old. Since then I have wanted to do a fundraiser to honor him and couldn't think of a better time to do it other than his first birthday! Since the day we found out about Hudson's cleft on the 3D ultrasound everything about clefts have been my most favorite subject! Hudson has consumed our lives since day one and along with him his cleft business also. We think highly of Hudson and all that he has been through in his first year of life and what lies ahead for him. So we chose to honor him with a fundraiser to raise money to fund as many cleft surgeries as we can to children around the world who are not as lucky as we have been. It's something special to us and close to our hearts as we have seen first hand the effects of a cleft lip and palate. One day I wish to go with the team of surgeons to the foreign countries and wait with the mothers as they wait for their own child during surgery. How grateful they must be to finally get the care their child needs! 

So we've set up a personal page in honor of Hudson through Operation Smile for anyone to make donations. We are not asking for gifts for Hudson on his birthday but only for you to donate that money to Hudson's page. We have been blessed to have you all in our lives and be able to share Hudson with!
