A tad raw......

August is Cuppa for Heart Kids month and I will be hosting a 'cyber' tea party with Show us ya Cupcakes on my Facebook page HERE on Thursday if anyone is interested in joining us.

As I remember our journey into parenthood I am haunted with memories that really aren't filled with joy, but more tears and heartache.

  • I remember the first time I heard the words "Your child has a heart condition!"
  • I remember sitting on the plane during our flight to Melbourne sobbing on Hubby's shoulder.

  • I remember waking up sobbing during the night, convinced I could hear my baby crying close by.
  • I remember hubby jumping into the shower fully clothed to hold me as I sobbed uncontrollably.
  •  I remember talking to the surgeon and trying so hard not to only hear the risks involved.
  •  I remember hiding under the covers once again sobbing and refusing to say goodbye to my baby as they took him into surgery. Hubby had to face that one alone :(
  •  I remember the phone call telling us everything went well!
  • I remember the first time I saw our tiny baby boy hooked up to so many different machines and looking literally like death warmed up.
  • I remember the first time we could hold him after his surgery.
  • I remember the day we were told we could finally go home.
  • I remember finally getting to introduce our baby to his family.
  • I remember everyday how blessed we are and am so very thankful that we are lucky enough to have our special Heart Kid with us today. 

    Please join us on Thursday and help raise money for a special cause.
