Every Heart has a Story....

Stef at When Life Hands you a Broken Heart has a blog link-up today.  It's called Every Heart has a Story and each participant is linking up a post that tells their family's CHD story in some way.

What a great way to meet others living with CHD or to learn more about how Congenital Heart Disease affects different people.  Chances are, every person reading this knows someone with CHD.  About 1 in every 100 babies are born with some type of CHD and many do not live to see their first birthday. 


If you are visiting from the blog hop.....welcome!  I have linked you to this post because our family has a 'two-fer' heart story.  That's right....two kids with complex Congenital Heart Disease!  Below you will find a few direct links to posts about both of my boys here on my blog.  You may have noticed that there is a tab on my blog header for our CHD story.  It's still blank.  Sorry!  I keep telling myself to write that out and well... I just haven't.  I will, though.

In the meantime, please check out these posts about my two boys, both with variations of complex TGA and hypoplasia:
