Happy Mothers' Day!

Dear Heart Friends, but especially you Heart Moms and Grandmas:

Happy Mothers' Day!!!

In honor of women everywhere, for the rest of the month Baby Hearts Press will sell The Heart of a Mother for half price -- both the print version and the ebook version.  Have you ever wondered how a mom feels when she finds out she is pregnant with a baby whose heart isn't perfect? How do military moms deal with having a child with a life-threatening heart defect? What about grandmothers? How are they affected?

Answers to those questions and many more are in the book The Heart of a Mother. With over 60 contributors from around the world, there will be stories to touch everyone's heart. The amazing thing about this book is that it clearly demonstrates how we heart moms have so much more in common than we do differences despite living in different locations with different cultures and sometimes even different languages. The way we heart moms feel and even many of our experiences are so similar it's almost eerie.

Some books portray the ugly side of raising a child with a heart defect but The Heart of a Mother is an inspiring book that uplifts even as it educates people about the #1 birth defect -- congenital heart defects. The book covers everything from finding out in utero that a baby will be born with a heart defect to actually losing a child due to a serious heart defect and everything in between. But what makes The Heart of a Mother special is the fact that all of these mothers, regardless of their educational level, background or culture are dignified women who tackle their challenges head on as they become fierce advocates for their children and themselves. The Heart of a Mother puts words on experiences that many women find difficult to describe. The Heart of a Mother unifies a worldwide community within the borders of its pages and helps women and men everywhere know they aren't alone.

I hope you will share the information about the special with everyone you know. This book is a gift that will last a lifetime. It's a gift that will be treasured. It's a gift that will help the reader to appreciate her own experiences and show her how to be a better advocate for herself and her child. This book could very well change a person's life.  Go to to order this book and others by Baby Hearts Press.

Happy Mothers' Day again, dear friends. I hope your day was as beautiful as mine.
