This blog was started to document our walk through jaw distraction surgery and how it is helping Faith overcome some of the serious issues she has faced including obstructive sleep apnea. After researching jaw distraction surgery, we could only find one other T-18 child to have this procedure done. We hope our story will help other families dealing with Trisomy 18 and we look forward to the day God completes the work He has begun in Faith.

Doctor briefing us on surgery.
The doctor came out a few minutes ago and let us know that Faith's surgery couldn't have gone any better. Many times there is tremendous blood loss with this surgery requiring a transfusion, but Faith had very little blood loss. We are now waiting on them to finish with her and then we will be able to see her.
