This is Grace. She is just weeks shy of 5 years old. Grace was born with several severe congenital heart defects. Her heart stopped beating on Feb. 20, 2007 and never beat in her chest without the help of life support again. She received a heart transplant at 19 days old and hasn't looked back since. She has survived multiple surgeries, hospitalizations and medical intervention. She is strong. She is happy. She is a face of CHD.

Our son, Daniel, was post-natally diagnosed with several congenital heart defects at day 2 of life.

Our 'sweetheart' Maddie (Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome, Pulmonary Atresia, Ebstein's Anomoly) has been such a blessing!
