February 7-14, 2011 is Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) Awareness Week
Please keep in mind all of the precious little lives that are affected by this serious illness. Say a prayer for them each day this week. Donate some money to help research. I'm sure there is a local organisation that supports families in your area. If you know a family that has been affected by this disease send them a little note or card. Do something small to show you care.

These children are brave little warriors, often going through more trauma than any adult I know. They are special gifts from God, full of His strength, courage and determination. He has a special purpose for each of them and their families. Their hearts are uniquely joined with God's as he holds them close through all of life's trials.
