These Small Hours

Thomas writing here.  I know, it's been nearly forever.  I remember when I was the one always writing in the blog while we were always at the hospital. I am truly amazed at how diligent my wife has been in updating this blog, and also amazed by how many follow it.

As Whitney approaches her 1 year landmark, I thought it be time to pay a little tribute to her progress.  I've seen others who have made a video about how CDH has affected their child and I wanted to do the same.  I am an extreme novice when it comes to video editing, and this was the best I could do.  I hope you all enjoy it.


  1. What an amazingly beautiful video! Way to go Thomas. Your daughter is super cute and a wonderful miracle. Thanks so much for the blog and letting us be a part of your heart wrenching, sweet and blessed experience with Whitney. She is sweet and one of the cutest babies I've ever had the chance to hold. Your family is amazing and so strong. Alicia and Thomas your faith and strength is an inspiration for me in my own life, thank you so much. Can't wait to see the pics from the big luau!

  2. Wow! Thank you Thomas! That was beautiful tribute! Very touching! Whitney is truly amazing to me. I think we can all learn great lessons from her strength. I admire you and Alicia, and what great parents you are! I can't believe Whitney is going to be 1!

  3. What a beautiful baby girl and what an amazing video! very touching!!! Your faith and perseverance is an example to others! love and blessings to you all!
