The faces of CHD-Pinterest awareness challenge

The week of February 7th is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week. Did you know that 1 in 100 babies is born with a heart defect?  The first time I heard this, I couldn't believe it!  1 in 100....that means in my school, there could be 7 kids that have heart defects of some kind.  I wonder how many haven't been diagnosed liked Abby's was before may 18th.  Pinterest is doing a project to make people more aware of congential heart defects, it's awesome.  I know that you've all read Abby's story, but there are so many other stories out there!!!  There are so many other little miracles taking place in the world all of the time.  The link is   I'm sharing Abby's story, but if you click on this link, you'll have the chance to read many others as well.  I want to do my part in making people be more aware of congenital heart defects!!

  1. Hi. I just read your story on Stef's blog, When Life Hands You a Broken Heart. Abby's story is amazing. I'm glad to hear she's doing well. I was born with a CHD, and faced the possibility of a transplant a couple of times. It was very scary. Reading Abby's story gave me a new perspective on it. Thank you for sharing. Take care, and best wishes for you, Abby, and your family.
