Not being able to do anything to help your little one when something is wrong. Worst feeling in the world.
So today, I am working on making cards for Gabe. I am sending them out to whoever wants one, whoever is willing to pray for his health, his strength and of course- his heart.
If you would like to receive a card with a red heart in it to remind you to pray for Gabe- please email me your address and I will send one to you. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Gabriel's next ultrasound is in 7 weeks. Today he is 23 weeks old (womb time- :))
"I lift my eyes unto the hills- Where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord- the maker of Heaven and Earth."
God bless you and every family struggling with a congenital heart defect.
1 in 100 babies are born with a congenital heart defect.
That means 40,000 babies in the US this year alone.
Every 15 minutes, 1 baby is born with a heart defect.
Congenital heart defects are the number one cause of death in infants and children, although children's cancer research receives 5x the funding for research.
