CHD Awareness Proclamation 2014

      This week is Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (Feb. 7-14), and I am so proud to share our highlight of the week!  Last evening Cora and I were welcomed guests at the Amelia Village Council meeting where the Mayor, Mr. Todd Hart, called my Cora up and read her a very important proclamation.  The village of Amelia declared Congenital Heart Defect Awareness for the week of the 7-14th, and encouraged all Amelia residents to join in the special observance!

     I was so proud of my Cora, who didn't want to go up in front of everyone!  She handled herself well and smiled beautifully!  I of course did my thing!  I gave out a few brochures and stickers and quietly supported my CHD daughter!  It was her moment.......a moment for her to feel special and proud of who she is!!!

     My challenge for each of you is spread the word.  Tell someone about CHD awareness week!  Share this blog, tweet a short message, share coffee with a friend and mention the importance of educating and research for CHD!

Blessings until next time!
