You are not alone in carring your child with CDH to term. Here is a quote from Luke’s mom to parents who have been given the adverse prenatal diagnosis of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH):

“Never give up hope…no mater how grim the circumstance may seem. God works miracles every single day. It is such a privilege to be Luke’s Mommy and I have been blessed to be a witness to what God can do.”
