Facing Tough Times: Words Of Wisdom From Adults With CHD (Part 1)

Written by:

One message I always try to convey to heart kids and their parents is that they are not alone. It’s easy to feel “different” from other kids, but I never want anyone to feel that way. 

I posted a note in several Facebook groups, asking for advice from adults who had congenital heart defects (CHD) as kids. I was so overwhelmed with the responses that I decided to do two posts—one about keeping a positive outlook, and one about caring for the heart.

The second post will publish later. I hope that you will share this post with your kiddo—and that you find the advice as encouraging as I did.

In part 2: Read more of these inspirational quotes. Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
