My name is Ashlee Wagoner. I’m a new stay at home mom, after years of working in the corporate world. I am a wife to an amazing husband, Brad, a mom to an incredible gastroschisis warrior, Madison, a Type 1 Diabetic, and just trying to navigate this new life! We were approached late December of 2018 with news that a friend’s relative was pregnant and looking for an adoptive family. We met with our birth mom a few days later, and several hours after meeting her got the call that she was in labor. Madison was born with undiagnosed gastroschisis and we spent a month in the NICU 8 hours away from home. I hope to be a support to those who are shocked with the gastroschisis diagnosis and bring awareness to the disease and treatment. My hope is that no one ever has to go through the google searches and “I’ve heard of that” conversations, and hopefully provide support to anyone who may need it.
