In honor of Mothers' Day, I invited a Heart Mom to prepare a guest blog for Baby Hearts Press. We are very blessed that Lisa Schaffer was willing to share her story with us. Please take a moment to enjoy her blog site as well!
It was early 2006 and I was standing in the pediatric specialty clinic lobby in front of a large display rack of cardiology brochures and pamphlets. I saw information about a variety of heart defects including pulmonary stenosis, septal defects, and transposition of the great arteries-all of which affected my newborn son in some form. Our new pediatric cardiologist walked by, paused, then turned and looked me in the eye. “You will not find anything on that rack that is even close to what you are dealing with,” he said solemnly as he patted my shoulder.
