The Roettgers Family is a unit of four. Matt is a graphic artist and a dad; Kaytee is a food scientist and a mom; Amber is a lovable brown dog; and Jack…he’s our miracle. Jack was diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia in June of 2011. As I type, he is home. Taking a nap in his own crib, in his own house thanks to all the remarkable nurses and doctors at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
This site will be used to educate, inform and update the happenings at the Roettgers’ House. It will be about our struggles and triumphs with CDH, a little advice and tips on parenting (as we make them up) and an overall update of Jack and his adventure in this world.
We hope that this site will help many families see into the house and lives of one great success story. This is in no way a site giving medical advice. We don’t know everything about parenting or CDH, but we know Jack.
