Welcome to the Smith Family's website. This site is about the incredible journey our family is taking together, but most importantly, Ryan and his special heart. Jim and I were married in 1997 and have three boys. Jake was born August 14th, 1998. Ryan was born August 23, 2000 with a congenital heart defect called Transposition of the Great Vessels/Arteries (TGA). Finally, Shea was born March 29th, 2002. This site is dedicated to Ryan. May his courage and strength be a lesson to us all. He's an inspiration and our own living proof that miracles do happen.
Photo Albums as well as RYAN'S BIRTH STORY are available in links on the left.
This candle is to remember those who have lost their battle with CHD, who are facing surgery, or recovering from surgery, or just to remember those who are in need of special thoughts and prayers.
