Sometimes when you hear the word “awareness”, I’m not sure many of us know what that can mean. You might hear the term and think “Yes, I know what a congenital heart defect is. I’m aware…so now what? How does being aware change anything? Babies will still be born with it. I feel badly that babies have to go through things like this, but being aware doesn’t change that they will still be born with problems.”Have those thoughts crossed your mind? I had a baby with a heart defect and have had those thoughts myself, even after she was born! Well guess what? If you are one that has similar thoughts, please read this! Because being aware of anything can spur you into motion IF you know what to do! I’m going to do my best to cover that in this post.FIRST, let’s start with some facts:
Thank you for supporting something so close to my heart! I am so thankful for the help given to my family during our time of need and can’t wait to return the favor to others—even just little things have a huge impact!
If you have other ideas on how to spread awareness, please let me know and I can add it to the list!
