We were blessed with our son, Nic, five years ago. We received a prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome and our life was turned upside down. Nic had a whole host of hurdles, fluid around his heart, his lungs, and malformed kidneys. We were told that he would not make it to full term. But in a turn of events, our little super hero defied the odds, all had corrected itself and he came into this world to change all our lives. We were dealt another blow a month after Nic was born. The cardiologist detected a dime sized hole in Nics heart. He was going into heart failure and had hypertension. So, at just 4 months of age, our little super hero was tested again. He under went open heart surgery, where they found a second smaller hole as well. Nic survived having an ASD/VSD. He truly is our mirical boy and a true super hero. Today, he is happy, healthy and going into Kindergarten in the fall. He is loved by everyone who meets him. Myself, his dad and his big sister (bff), love him so much and could not imagine our lives without him.
