Yesterday was exactly six years on from the day we were told Jessica’s heart condition was so severe that it was unlikely post-birth surgery would be an option. Back then, we thought that she would live for only a few hours at best. Yesterday, we watched our little miracle taking part in the Girls’ Brigade Explorers Sports Day. She usually trails way behind her peers but she amazed us in the obstacle race. Not only was she not last, but she actually finished in third place and at one point, she was leading the race. Not bad for a little girl with only half a working heart!
