Hey everyone! Seeing as it's CHD Awareness Week - I just had to make a post and encourage everyone to blog or make a facebook post or something to spread awareness of CHD. I also have to say it is so cool to see the group membership up close to 2000 - I remember when I joined there were less than 20 and it wasn't so long ago. What a wonderful thing that so many moms can come together and find support.
Our son Jacob was born with TGA and had surgery at 14 days old - he is now almost 5 years old. It is amazing to think that 5 years ago I knew nothing about Heart Defects, and yet they are the #1 birth defect.
