Hi, I'm Laina Moore!

My son was born in May 2018 with right-ear microtia atresia (small ear without a canal opening) and Congenital Heart Disease ((CDH) two holes in his heart). We did not know of these things until his brith and were shocked to say the least. We quickly poured overselfs into microtia communities and ended up at 12 specialists within the first 12 weeks of his life. 


When I first started this blog the goal was to simply have a place to share Nolan's story with our friends and family. To be honest, it was easier for me to share bad news on this forum than it was to call/text all of our friends and family. We were in a season of constant bad news and needed to be able to share our news just one time, and this allowed us to be able to do so while hiding behind the blog. 

This blog quickly became much more than a place to share bad news. It is also where we shared the good news, great news, happy news. It is where we have been able to share Nolan's story and be supported with more love and positivity than we ever thought possible. 


Everyone has a story, and it is always more than meets the eye. You just have to be willing to stop and listen. 


As I began to think of the future of this blog, I started to wonder what more we could do? With our last name being Moore it was simple to decide... The Story of Moore.


  • More doctors.

  • More learning.

  • More news (good & bad).

  • More time as a family.

  • More people to meet.

  • More love.

  • More positivity.

  • More growth.

  • More stories.


We want to continue to share our story while learning more about others too. Not just children with Microtia or CHD, but stories of other parents, other children, friendship, challenges, triumphs, vacations, etc. 


Our story here has become so much more than what we thought it would and we are so thankful that we can share it with all of you.
