Three years ago my world was VERY different it is today. Today I picked my son up from his Valentine's Day party where he played with friends, shared cards and of course, ate way too much candy. Three years ago, not only did I have a small baby, but I had a baby who wasn't able to attend daycare. With his diagnosed pulmonary atresia, a congenital heart defect, getting sick from other kids was too hard on his heart. Now, the only thing that is really hard is to remember that this WAS our reality like millions of other kids who are born with CHDs.http://www.myfoxdc.com/dpp/community/cmn/032210-Jackson-Reo-Has-Heart1269271231234
