Welcome to the VATER Connection Archives. Our forums, have been the leading support group for VACTERLS/VATER community. Our mission began in 1996 when our Founders Nancy McCarley and Angie Schreiber of Starksville, Mississippi and Emporia, Kansas respectively came together with the to connect families to families and families to organizations. After their children (Nancy's son and Angie's daughter) were diagnosed with VATER Association.

In 1998 David Kitchens, and his family joined the VC and Dave has hosted the website ever since. In 1999 Arlene Lambert, and her daughter Zoe came into the VACTERLS Community, and began assisting with the VC.

Due to the overwhelming, amount of spam that has been circulating the internet was have disabled the ability to post on the forums. We have created a “New User” forum for those families who are just coming into the community can post and get help. Please Visit our new user 411 post for important information regarding VACTERLS.
