Congential Heart Defect Awareness.....

Somewhere…someplace… today…A family is waiting to hear…Is something wrong with their baby?The answers aren’t quite clear…This family has entered an unwanted world…And they just don’t know what to expect…Somewhere…someplace… today They first heard the words: heart defect. And how they hoped this was not true…And thought… this cannot be…I too… know just how this feels…For one day…this was me.

Somewhere…someplace…today…A man and a woman embrace…Their baby is in surgery…They long to see her face…They haven’t got to hold her yet…Without…a cord or line…They pace the room awaiting news…And hope she’ll be just fine.Prayers fill this busy waiting room…And mom and dad are scared…Somewhere……The tiniest hearts are repaired.

Somewhere…someplace…today…A child’s growing fast…Smiling,laughing,thriving…His mom thinks…can this last?It’s almost easy…to forget…That anything is wrong…Somewhere……Her child seems so strong.

Somewhere…someplace.. today…A little boy fights…just to live..A father holds his tiny hand…His love…all he can give…The doctor’s are all baffled…They fear that he might die…Somewhere…someplace…today…A family says goodbye…

Somewhere…someplace…each year..More than 40,000 families will see…What it means…when something’s wrong…They’ll face a CHD. Today…for just a moment…Stop…remember…reflect…Make time to tell someone you know…“I’ve been changed by a heart defect”.
