Keegan Parker Findeison

Keegan Parker Findeison

I would like everyone to meet my grandson, Keegan Parker Findeison, who is our miracle baby.  He was born in September, but was not home with the whole family until December, just before Christmas, and  is now six months old. Keegan has Holoprosencephaly- which happens to one in every 250 pregnancies; only 3 percent of those pregnancies survive until birth, and only 1 percent of that 3 percent survive passed 6 months!
