My sweet Colin was born at 30 weeks gestation along with his 2 triplet brothers via Cesarean section on December 27, 2008.  At 3 pounds and 4 ounces the doctors quickly realized that Colin was working too hard to breathe despite interventions.  An echocardiogram diagnosed his heart defect which is Transposition of the Great Vessels.  To make matters even more difficult, Colin was born with only one coronary artery.  His subclavian artery was grafted to create a new coronary artery on his…

"This is Albie and he was born 23 February 2011 with a CHD (Transposition of the Great Arteries, Pulmonary Stenosis, Sub-Pulmonary Stenosis and a VSD). He has had three procedures and a shunt operation so far and we await open-heart surgery in the next few months. Its been a big year to say the least. But do you know what? Albie was born, like all of these fighters, not 'just' with a heart condition. He was born laden with many, many more gifts and he has taught me so much already. I know…

Every heart has a story – and this is his.

This is Elliott he's my little heart warrior. He was born December 27th, 2010 a perfectly healthy boy.  We never had any indication that any thing was wrong and I never dreamed how quickly our life would change. Elliott was home with us for three and a half weeks before we had any idea that there was any thing wrong with him.  He became ill over the course of 12 hours and before we knew it we were in the ER in the wee hours of the morning, and he was surrounded by a trauma team as my husband…

This means a lot to me too, my Mom was born with a CHD.    CHD Awareness Week 2012 - February 7th-14th. 1 in 100 children are born with a congenital heart defect. Ethan was the 1. He was born on November 14th,2010 but was diagnosed with an intracardiac mass on his septum in utero at 37 weeks. Thankfully we were aware of his condition before he was born, but many chd's go undetected. CHD'S are the number one killer of children.

My son's name is Caleb and he's now 2 yrs. old with Pulmonary Atresia with Intact Ventricular Septum, Tricuspid Stenosis.   He spent the first 4 months in the hospital, awaiting a heart transplant, then ended up getting another open heart surgery instead, Bidirectional Glenn.   He's a happy 2 year old, although he will definitely need more open heart surgery, we take it one day at a time and you can't tell a thing is wrong with him by looking at him.

Anniston is a beautiful 2 1/2 year old girl who was born with the CHDs Interrupted Aortic Arch and VSD.  When she was three days old, she had surgery to connect her aorta and to repair her VSD at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia...a wonderful place!  Anniston acquired an infection in her incision after surgery, so we were in the hospital for one month.  She had a heart cath at 4 months to open her aorta which had narrowed significantly after her open heart surgery.  She had a major…

I’ve been feeling the Lord leading me to rewrite our story with Anniston in a more condensed version lately.
