Stories of HopeAre you expecting or have a baby that has been newly diagnosed with a congenital heart defect? Here are hundreds of stories of hope submitted by some of our members we'd like to share with you. It is our intention that they offer hope, inspiration and support to those who read them.
We have over 4,000 members nationwide who have a child with a congenital heart defect. Of those, we have over 400 that have shared their story for our website. So, if you see only a few stories for the heart defect you're looking for, it's only because not everyone shares their story.
Check out our Membership by Diagnosis Year 2017 page. The Stories of Hope below are just a few shared by members.
If you read a story and would like to connect with that member, just contact us. To learn more about our Parent Matching Program, please visit our our website.
