I have to say, I’m a bit biased towards this family. They are beautiful and I’m happy to call them family 🙂 Clifton & Elisia are my Brother-in-law and Sister-in-law and their two beautiful children Eliana & Caleb, are my niece and nephew. This session was extra special to me and I’m sure to them for a couple of reasons.
Their son Caleb was born In April, he was also born with a heart defect. Caleb was born with AV channel defect, which basically means he was born with hole in his heart. Right away they knew he would need heart surgery, and soon. This is no minor procedure, they knew they couldn’t wait too long but long enough for him to be strong enought for the surgery. I can’t imagine the anticipation of his parents. Knowing that their baby would undergo major surgery and the anticipation was the hardest part for them. They needed to wait until Caleb was 6 months old in order for him to operated on. This past October he prepared for surgery. The Doctor monitered him in the hospital for a few days before the surgery took place. I really can’t imagine sitting and waiting for the surgery to take place, I believe Elisia knitted him a blanket to pass the time and to keep her mind off the surgery. The surgery finally took place and everything went smooth. Through prayer and the Doctor’s hands Caleb’s heart is healed and I don’t believe they anticipate Caleb needing anymore surgery’s in the future.
This little boy is a fighter and his family is strong. I love that I get to be part of this family and watch them grow together. Clifton & Elisia are loving parents who love their children dearly.
