We were expecting! At the 8 week ultrasound found out there were 2! My husband was laid off and I was high risk due to the type of twins they were. But we were beyond excited to start a family! At the 20 week ultrasound, our boys BOTH were diagnosed with a CHD, tetrology of fallot. Both of our boys were going to need open heart surgery. We stayed optimistic that everything would be okay. I went into preterm labor twice, but they hung in until the 37 week due date. We delivered 2 beautiful baby boys. They struggled with feedings, energy, and occasional turning “blue”. At 6 months they had open heart surgery 2 weeks apart and are now 1. They will have to be monitored for the rest of their lives. Regardless of the struggles they will have for their life ahead, we want to bring awareness to everyone by being active in the community that CHD is a real thing and it can happen to anyone. We have no family history! Our boys are warriors and truly an inspiration to us, and they touch the lives of everyone around them! We truly are gifted and thankful everyday for these amazing people we get to call our own boys.
