Meet Maddox | Jonesboro Arkansas Family Photographer

Y’all say hello to Maddox and his sweet little family. I had the honor of meeting and photographing them last weekend and wow… they are precious and they have an amazing story. I asked Rachel if I could share a little about Maddox and his journey and she said YES! Please do. He is precious, he is one tough little dude 💙 his big brother and sister adore him and God has HUGE plans for him. I just know it.

Maddox was born 7/11/16 with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, Aortic Stenosis, Tricuspid valve Dysplasia and Pulmonary stenosis. Basically, he was born with half of a functioning heart and the half he was born with was very flawed. He received his first open heart surgery at 6 days old and received a heart transplant at 8 days old. He remained inpatient for 70 days. While in the hospital we found out about the beads of courage program. He received a different bead for various instances, such as days he was inpatient, surgeries, blood draws, tests and other things. I spent a lot of time in his hospital room stringing the beads to help tell his story.
