Shannon and I worked together for several years before she got married and started teaching. We didn't see each other for a while but then I found out she was pregnant and that at her 20 week ultrasound they found out that Derrick had a CHD. I contacted her and we talk all the time now, since we have started Hope for BRAVEHearts (I will get to that in another post!).
Derrick is the cutest little thing and is 1 year and 2 days younger than Lorelei. He is so full of life and has had several procedures and 2 open heart surgeries and will have a third this spring.
