I met my first heart transplant recipient last night. She was a darling two year old full of energy, and life. When her mom and I went outside, she started running towards us. I just wanted to scoop her up and squeeze her. I don't know if that would have been socially acceptable, but I just wanted to give her a big hug. After meeting Zoe and her fabulous mom Jenn I am feeling empowered about being a heart mommy. From everyone I have talked to about what to expect this next year the answers have been similar. It is going to be life altering and a lot of work, but with many blessings along the way.
I just wanted to say thank you to Jenn for taking the time to meet with me- Maybe in two years I will be helping someone else the way you have... and will ;-) help me.
