5 Years Ago................

I gave birth to a beautiful, perfect little girl. We were blessed to have a pediatrician who heard a murmur and gave it enough thought to call for an ECHO. 2 days later my precious, perfect little girl was flown to MUSC without her parents and we had no idea what was in store for us. On April 24, 2008 Lorelei had her first open heart surgery. It was a long journey with wonderful friends that were made and a wonderful hospital that took care of not only Lorelei but us too!

Easter 2013 almost 5


We want to thank everyone that we have met throught this whole experience including, Palmetto Hearts and Rebecca Butcher (Annabelle Baskets). While we were at MUSC, Lorelei received the first Annabelle Basket. I also want to thank my partner in crime with Hope for BraveHEARTS, Shannon Carter, without you there would be no HBH! And, last but not least, Mandy and Evie. From a chance meeting at my workplace to becoming great friends, I am so glad that He put us in each others paths. Lorelei misses Evie and asks when we can go have tea!

I can't believe it has been 5 years but it still seems just like yesterday for me. I can't wait for another 50 with her!

Happy Heart Day Lorelei and in another few months, we will have another Heart Day Anniversary!
