When Lauren was 6 month old, I was scheduled to shoot some pictures of her. However, the day before the shoot, Lauren’s mom Amanda texted me to say that we’d have to postpone because Lauren was sick. Later that night I received another text from Amanda asking for prayer for Lauren.
While in the waiting room of the ER at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver, Lauren’s heart stopped! It turns out Lauren has a rare heart defect.
And it’s only by a miracle that it stopped while in one of the most equipped facilities to take care of Lauren.
What happened next was months in the hospital with multiple heart surgeries for Lauren, and lots of stretching, testing, and growing Lauren’s family’s faith and endurance. You can read all her story from her mom here: Focusing on Miracles
I’m extremely happy to share these photos of Lauren, and to say that she’s healthy, and bubbly and full of smiles!
