I'm celebrating February 14th - National Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Day!! Passing out flyers and stickers, talking to people about it, trying to spread awareness. I love it better than buying dumb candy and flowers or other things I/he doesn't need.
How can I contribute?( I am serious)?
Congenital Heart Defect Week is Feb 7-14th. National CHD Day is Feb. 14th. You could do something for that. It doesn't always have to be money that is contributed. You could spread awareness just as easy. CHD research is grossly underfunded yet is the #1 Killer of our children. The facts about CHDs are chilling and the research money facts are even more chillin. You can visit this website for more information.

How to take a decision for your ownself?
my son was born with a heart condition that we didnt know about until he was a day old. the situation was suppose to be one of the happiest of our lives, turned into the scariest, chaotic, truely saddest time of our lives. there was nothing i could do, no way for me to fix it, and thats hard for me being a control freak and all. i had to turn to faith. faith in karma, the surgeons, a higher power, education on the subject, modern medicine, you name it and i had to believe some how my baby would be ok.
i did learn the only control we have in situations that we are put in with no contol...is the contol we have over how we react to the situation. what we do during and after the situation.
my son is 6 months old, has had 2 open heart surgerys already and another one in fall of 09'. he is doing awesome.
my way of dealing with a situation that is out of my control, now i reach out to other familys, i continue to educate myself on new advances, research, causes, and spreading awareness for congenital heart defects.
so when life comes to the point with various pathways we choose the one we are strong enough to walk. it maybe dark and lonely, but if you choose, it can make you a stronger, better, wiser person. good luck to you with what ever path you choose. email me if you need to talk.
