  1. Hello

    Hi

    Well I have started this blog but I am very confused about how this all works. I am not very technically minded but like to have a go. I am so happy to be part of this,without cherubs I wouldn't have met all the wonderful friends I have made in the last 18 months. These friends got me through my pregnancy and were also there for me when Joel left us. Thank you everyone. Once I get the hang of all this I will update more

    Lots of love Debbiexxxxxx

  2. About Me

    My CHERUB Jonathan Luke, was born Nov. 7, 1997 with a RCDH, hole in the heart, and IUGR. He weighed only 4 lbs. 15.7 oz. full term. We did not find out he had CDH until they performed an autopsy to find out why he died. I have been a member of CHERUBS since 1998.

  4. Web Site

    "The site is almost live!" keeps repeating in my head. I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve. The calendar has issues, the volunteer section needs work and the research section has to be done but we can go live without those things for now. I have some more things that need to be done in next few days, but I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. And we have volunteers helping get it done! How great is that? They have no idea how much easier they are making my work! ...

  5. Back from Vaca

    I got back from a much needed vacation last night. I had a wonderful time. We started by spending a night in Raleigh, NC where we got to spend some time and meet Dawn before heading to South Carolina to see some friends and family. We ended our vacation in the middle of nowhere West Virginia where we camped at a state park 20 miles away from the closest town. It was exactly what I needed to relax. I wish it never ended, but now I guess its time to go back to work and back to reality.
