You could call 6 month old Johnny a miracle baby. The back story of how he came into this world is a true tale of faith and inspiration. His mom and my friend Kaye has a congenital heart condition called Eisenmenger Syndome and despite the odds, managed to to give birth to him a few weeks early. At birth, he weighed 3 lbs and 9 ounces but the battle was only beginning for mommy Kaye, who underwent two surgeries following childbirth. Their story is really one for the medical books – a real miracle story. You can read all about it here at the Cloutman family website.
Here are some of my favorites of a recent family pictorial.
Daddy John may be a real ‘blues’ man, but holding baby Johnny gives him nothing but sheer joy.
