CHD Awareness week

Each year, during the week of Valentine's Day it is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness week. This week not only fills me with Love, but also with gratitude. The reminder that just because my little boy is one of the luckiest ones- doesn't mean there aren't still people out there starting at the very beginning.

I'll spare all my thoughts, feelings and memories, and just share a video I borrowed from another Heart Mom's blog. Watching it brings me all the way back to the day I found out my baby may or may not make it in this world, and I am proud of all the strong mom's and dad's that support and carry their kids through the incredible journey that will last their lifetime.

TLC featured a Heart Dad that got a tattoo in honor of his little boy, diagnosed with HLHS.]
