Brian and I decided (sort of at the last minute) to bank Addison's cord blood. After a lot of research and talking to Dr. Solomon we decided on Viacord to do the collection. We liked Viacord because they are FDA approved and do research on the cord blood, which makes them more than a "bank". While we hope the cord blood never needs to be used, it does offer some insurance in just in case. The cord blood is also available for our families if needed. Dr. Solomon made a good point at our last appointment by saying right now tons of valuable information is thrown away with every discarded cord and within the next 10 years he does not think a single cord will be discarded. We will receive our kit tomorrow! For more information you can go to www.viacord.com.
Brian and Carrie have been married since January 2004. We love the Lord and are blessed with wonderful friends and a supportive, loving family. In July 2009 we welcomed our first daughter, Addison Rose. She is a spunky, fun toddler and we love her so much. Sweet McKenna Noelle was born on Christmas Day 2010. Having two children 17 months apart is a little crazy, but that is our life and we would not change it for the world.
Our families theme scripture is "Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Our life since getting married has been an amazing journey and hope you enjoy reading about it.
