Before our son, Anthony Emmanuel Arritola was born, we were notified he had a rare syndrome that is considered incompatible with life, meaning that he would not be able to sustain his life outside the womb.  Despite the odds against him, his diagnosed syndrome and being born with a defective heart, he was delivered into this world with a gentle smile.  As a mother who has birthed flesh of my flesh and heart of my heart, my soul has suffered with Anthony as he faced challenges to his life.  I don’t know how you came to this website, but now that you are here, We're glad you are. 


Within this site you can find:


   >  Journal of Highlights and Overview of our Journey beyond the negative prenatal diagnosis

   > Parental Support for families

   > Emmanuel's Foundation - helping families undergoing a difficult pre/post natal diagnosis

   >  Resourceful Links for those facing a similar walk of life

   >  Memorial to the life of Anthony Emmanuel - co-founder of Emmanuels Foundation

   >  Our Family & Kids Page - because our kids ARE our life! and

   >  Photo Albums - Pictures - because they say so much

   >  Video Montage: Lessons Learned, by James Gregory - a 9 year old brother describes challenges to his little brothers life that taught him many lessons.
