Mia's sweet mama, Mimi and I drove (with a lot of inching on I-405 thrown in) together and met up with about 15 other heart families for BBQ, fellowship and swimming. There is something about heart kids ... for one, I think they are exceptionally cute, and for another, they are the most resilient people I know. Their moms and dads are pretty great too!
Miss Maddie, Hypoplastic Right Heart. Her mama, Katie, helped organize the party. Thank you, Katie!
Sweet Mia, Heart Transplant, peeking around her mom. This girl's constant smile belies what she has gone through!
Luke and Maddie making their way to the slides. Look at that ruffle bum!
Miss Teagan, Hypoplastic Left Heart. This girl could not be more squeezable.
Mirabel Alice, Hypoplastic Left Heart. She just came home recently from the Glenn and a diaphragm plication just like Luke. Two surgeries and home in 10 days. This girl is a fighter!
See? I wasn't kidding when I say heart kiddo's are exceptionally CUTE!
