Moms of Trach Babies

I searched for a community for moms of tracheostomy babies but was unable to find one, so I thought I would start one. My thoughts are for this community to be of moms with trach babies... a place to seek advice, ask other moms going through similar situations questions, a place to share your trach angels story, or a place just to vent to other moms in your situation. If you are a mom of a child with a tracheostomy, please join this community.
