Default 18 years ago - Live Birth Thread on TBH

18 years ago today …. I had a live thread going on tbh of my daughters birth and things quickly went south. She was rushed by kangaroo care team to Texas Childrens where spent the next several weeks making a miraculous recovery after being told going ECMO and to call our family in to say goodbye. I tell her all the time she is special cause God himself reached down and touched her ….. FF to 18 years later and here we are. Went from special Ed - legally deaf with cochlear implant, to regular classes to now announced 2022 Valedictorian ( her brother was in 2019) She is committed and going to pitch at nationally ranked and 8 time back to back conference champion Texas Lutheran . She will study to be a Physical Therapist while attending there. Trey has one more year at Howard Payne and pitches there too ⚾️going to be busy next ball season trying to catch games for each Both are great kids who have been making great decisions thus far!

Why am I posting this here …… to brag a little and mainly update and thank again the hundreds of people that were praying and reached out to us during this difficult time , many added her to church pray boards and sent us bulletins etc . My wife never griped again about me being on the “green screen”. Well she is now cause wants to go eat

Happy Birthday Kate !!!


She was recently named classroom champion on KBTX in college station - a TBH’r messaged me and gave me heads up it was on that night. We didn’t even know

It dates my time here, but I remember that day.

She has grown into a beautiful young woman, and to have TWO valedictorians as kids, you and the Mrs. might need to have those smiles surgically removed!

Congrats to all of you!

JT, I remember the day and the story. And your nickname for her: your "little angle". That is how I always remembered her. She is a blessing. As each child, and the time we get to share with them, are blessings in its self.

I enjoyed reading this, and I am impressed with everything she has accomplished! She is just an impressive person. You and your wife should be very proud. Y'all are going to put some miles on some vehicles with two of them playing, but do it. You have plenty of time to sit still and sleep and such when they are done. And they will finish one day and you won't know what to do!

You have a great problem to have right now! Congrats!
