Little Miracles

This is my sister Sarah and her gorgeous daughter Maren. Maren was born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome, a condition where she basically had only half a heart and has endured a series of open heart surgeries to correct the condition and has more to go. You can read a little about their journey on Sarah's blog. Sarah and Maren are on the cover of Children's National Medical Center's quarterly magazine and their story is featured inside. I am constantly and truly amazed at my sister and her daughter for their strength and faith through this battle they've been asked to fight. They are both an amazing example to me. Love you guys!

"Meanest mom" is going to be so mad she got a medical magazine cover. :P

Congratulations Maren and Sarah, it's amazing what you have been through and where you are now. :)

Oh, Mary! You are silly. I just got an e-mail from the editor of the story. She said she read this post. Funny, huh? Thanks for the shout-out.

You and yours continue to amaze me. If only I had a little of your Dely power for my little speed bumps of life. Here are some prayers for Sarah and baby Maren!
