Walk for Healing Hearts

On Saturday, September 12th, we attended the Intermountain Healing Hearts walk. This was the second year for the walk and is intended to raise money for the support group to families like us who have a child or family member affected by a congenital heart defect. I've said it over and over again on this blog, but I feel really grateful to be a part of this group. There is something about sharing such a difficult experience with people like you who understand the emotions of extreme sorrow, hope, and rejoicing. We've made life long friends and its really helped Jake and I to appreciate what we've got.

We're so glad that Kathleen, Kristin, Libby, Mallory, Mom, Dad, and Stephen were able to attend with us to support Nathan. I cannot believe how far Nathan has come since his birth. We've had many ups and downs in the last year and its been nice to have such a good family support system. From my understanding, I think it will be held again next year during the second weekend of September. We can't wait!

It was a fun day and I can't believe how far Nathan has come in the last year!

I really wish we could have been there. I'm not just saying that, I really wish we could have. That picture of my mom and Nathan is really good. You must be having fun with your camera like I am. :)
