It is very hard to believe that this amazing child entered our lives one year ago today. Although it has been an emotional roller coaster ride for our family, he has endured more than all of us put together. Three major surgeries, four hospital stays, hundreds of doctor visits, hours of therapy and yet every day he smiles and laughs like nothing has happened.

His strength, courage and determination should be an example to be followed by us all. May God bless him with many years of health and happiness.

I just found your blog today and was amazed at the similarities between Gabriel and my son Owen. Owen was born 3/6/07 with right-sided CDH. Reading your first post of Gabriel's first couple of weeks was like a walk down memory lane. Same days for surgery, going on c-pap. Owen ended up doing really well with bottle feeding and didn't need to be tube-fed after he mastered the bottle. We were also fortunate that he didn't suffer from reflux.
I am glad Gabriel is doing so well. Happy Birthday little guy!
