Pictures of James - sorry images are big

Here are some pictures of our angel.  Yes, he has red hair and blue eyes.  As a matter of fact that is one of the few things that I remember Adam saying the first time he came back from the NICU to me after the c-section, "he's not blue and he has red hair?!"  Come to find out I have distant family members that had red hair.  The hospital was amazing at taking pictures and sent us home with over 300 images.   We also learned when we bought his Christening outfit that our boy had some big feet.  His little feet fit in newborn shoes and he was born 5 weeks early...needless to say Adam was pretty proud of that fact...ugh, men.

In addition to his known five heart defects, he was also born with an unknown condition, Tracheal Atresia. There currently is no treatment for this. We will love and miss you forever our sweet angel!
