My Avery is a very special little girl! She was born 6 years ago and has kept us on our toes ever since. Like many children born with a CHD, Avery has other health issues that she will be dealing with for the rest of her life. She has many doctors, specialists, surgeons, lab techs, and pharmacists that we have formed special bonds with. At birth, Avery had a procedure done on her heart. At two years old, Avery had open heart surgery to replace her aortic valve. She will need to have at least one other surgery in the future. I had thought the day my husband and I were told that she was born with a birth defect in her heart that would not be cured was the worst day of my life. I was wrong! Surgery day was by far the most horrific day of my life!! She came out of it with flying colors and continues to amaze our family on a daily basis! Over the past six years, Avery has been the constant light in our lives!! She has this infectious smile, laugh, and attitude that warms an entire room of people. To meet Avery, one would never know the health challenges that she has endured in the past or the ones that she’s going to meet head on in her lifetime. Over the years, many people have asked “how do you handle it all?” or have said “you’re so strong”! My answer is always I do it for Avery. As Avery’s mom I’m the one that is supposed to be teaching her life lessons. In her short six years of life, Avery’s taught me more about courage, strength, grace, love, and happiness!
