ONE Photo: The Paper Heart Project


Welcome to the monthly blog circle!  February is the month of hearts, so we're switching things up with a theme.  We're joining Danielle Awwad, a fellow blog circle member, in The Paper Heart Project to help raise awareness for Congenital Heart Defects (CHD).  Danielle's son was born with a heart defect.  Her family's story is one of trial and inspiration.

Did you know that 1 in every 110 babies is born with a congenital heart defect?  Some defects are minor and simply require monitoring while others are life threatening and require open heart surgery--sometimes multiple surgeries!  Raising awareness can lead to change, research, and funding.

The good news is that you too can join in the fun to help spread awareness for CHD.  Simply post a photo to social media of anyone holding a paper heart and hashtag it with ‪#‎CHDawareness‬ and ‪#‎Paperheartproject‬ throughout the month of February. If you or your child has CHD, draw a zipper on your paper heart and hashtag it ‪#‎hearthero‬.  Let's spread the love and awareness all month long!

Please hop on over to Kelly Ann's blog to meet her precious brand new baby (who was born with a minor heart defect!) and continue through our special paper heart blog loop.
