Heart Mom Dinner: CHD Week 2012
I finally had the opportunity to join my fellow heart mom's at a lovely dinner and enjoyed a night of support, awareness and reflection. We gathered at Rickenbacker's in Ogden and had a wonderful time. I got to see old friends and meet new ones, as well as ones I've known for forever but hadn't met in person. I hope everyone there had a wonderful time and those who couldn't attend will be at the next event. Intermountain Healing Hearts is such a wonderful organization. I don't know how I would get along without it. For those of you who haven't yet heard of it please recommend it to anyone you know who has a child or family member with a CHD, and it will change their lives.
