Baby Adam

Babie's shouldn't die, yet, they do.

Let me introduce you to this handsome little man. His name is Adam. Or as some called him "Baby Adam" or "Bubbi."

Friday the tenth at a little funeral home in Saint Helen's Oregon a bunch of people gathered to celebrate this litte babies life. Why? Because he went home to be with Jesus about a week before. Let me tell you a little about his life.

Adam was born June 6th, 2010 with a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS).

Adam was able to hold out til he was 6 weeks old before his first open heart surgery. And shortly after he was put on the transplant list. Adam has his set of complications but at 15 months, September 2011, Adam got his miracle heart. Adam did okay but had complications. He was able to make it home one last time for Christmas with his family. In January Adam got an infection and on the night of January 28th, 2012 Adam went to be with Jesus.

Adam proved stronger then anyone thought, making it to 6 weeks before his first surgery proved to everyone how much a fighter he was. He touched many lives, especially mine.

Adam was a true CHD warrior, now he's a beautiful CHD angel. He is loved and missed by everyone who knew him, and even by many who never got to meet him.
