Many of you followed along here last January as we all prayed for my great-niece, Hazel who was born with a Congenital Heart Defect, Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome (HLHS). We all prayed for a miracle, along with her parents. Staying here with us on earth only 13 days, Hazel left a lasting imprint in so many lives. Since then, her mom couldn't help but find a way to be involved and help other families. Yesterday was the 1st Annual CHD Walk in our area.
I know there are many causes out there and many of them are worthwhile. When a disease touches a special loved one in your own family, you cannot help but want to support and love them by supporting their cause. We signed up for Hazel's walk months ago and despite being on bed rest, I did attend with our family. Rest assured, I did not walk and did a lot of sitting. I still desired to be there to support Ryan and Angie, even for the short time we were able to stay.
Sorry for all of the photos, but it showed more than I could ever write here. For more information on CHD's, check out It's My Heart online.
