Heart to heart is a monthly link-up for heart families to share stories about their journeys. My eldest daughter Jessica has hypoplastic left heart syndrome and I started blogging about her heart journey a few weeks before she was born. Since her arrival, we have got to know other heart families, in person through our stays in the hospital, but also online through social media and blogging. It has been hugely helpful for us as a family to hear stories of other heart families which have helped give us hope and encouragement, but also made us realise that we are not alone in our struggles; that we are part of a community of other heart families. I started this linky in the hope that sharing stories would help other heart families out there too.
The linky opens on the 15th of each month and stays open for a week so there is plenty of time to share. You can share old posts or new posts, updates on how your heart child is progressing, poems, advice – whatever you like as long as it is related to life as a heart family. If you would like to add the code below to your post that would be great and please do visit other posts in the link too!
It was lovely to be joined by two new linkers last month:
- Heartmammi shared her delight in receiving good news at her daughter’s cardiac check-up which left her wanting to do a Happy Dance
- Northumberland Mam shared her reflections five years on from her girls going to hospital for heart surgery.
Thank you to everyone who joined in last month and shared their stories. Looking forward to reading your posts this month.
