Support Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week February 7th -14th

Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week kicked off today! This is such a special week to fully think about the babies who were and are affected by congenital heart defects. If you have been keeping up with my latest post you know that this birth defect has personally affected my family. My son Christian was born with an heart defect called Tetraolgy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. His heart defect was not discovered until three days after his birth. After two open heart surgeries and 4 1/2 years old, Christian is doing great and is a very healthy & strong little boy. Christian will continue to have multiple surgeries throughout his life to replace his pulmonary valve (which does not grow with him). To celebrate this month, I have partnered with The Healthy Hearts Team to raise funds for Little Hearts, Inc.
