Jaxon Strong, A Miracle Baby born with most of His skull missing and Jaxon just Passed a Major Milestone. By Brie Schwartz
As he gears up to turn two—a moment doctors said would never come—his parents are working on the foundation they created in his honor.
When we were first introduced to Jaxon Strong, a child born with half his brain and skull missing, he had just celebrated his 1st birthday—a milestone his parents never thought he’d reach.
Jaxon stole our hearts last August, with his curious, bright blue eyes and blond ringlets. We followed up with Jaxon when he said “I love you” for the first time and watched him fulfill every child’s dream of meeting Santa, but now, as Jaxon’s parents prepare for his second birthday, the story of how he’s defied the odds has become all the more topical.
