Avery's Little Brother (Carter Bryant) Born 11/23/13

Avery officially became a big sister to an SMA-free baby brother on Saturday, November 23, 2013.  We are extremely proud to welcome Carter Bryant Canahuati into our family while helping Avery scratch one more item off her list (Become A Big Sister)!

Yeah little buddy, we imagine somewhere your big sister
Avery is smiling big too!
Thank you again to everyone for loving Avery and continuing to care about our family.  If you haven't done so today (or in a while), tell someone you know about Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) or reach out to an SMA family in your area and ask what you can do to help them...you never know how it might positively impact their lives or this disease.

To learn more about SMA or to make a donation towards research for a cure, please go to either of the following non-profit websites:http://www.fightsma.org/

  31. I know exactly what you are going thru because my wife and I are the proud parents of our son whom was diagnosed with type one 21 years ago. No one can tell you when your child will pass not even doctors.
    Look at us my son was given the same death sentence but lived to be 17 years old.
    So don't get too down for now you may very have a long and time left to enjoy your children.
