ANGELS PEDIATRIC HEART HOUSE
December 4, 2010

By surprise, our daughter was born 17 years ago with a Congenital Heart Defect. She had open heart surgery when she was ten months old at a hospital out of town. I remember how lonely, scared, overwhelmed with all kinds of emotions my husband and I felt hoping and praying that God would protect our beautiful baby girl. When we came back home, we felt somehow alone because none of our friends and family knew how this traumatic experience had changed us, even though they all meant well. That is the reason my daughter and I are voluntering and helping APHH. We really felt that we were contributing in a positive way with all the families that, at the moment, are dealing with this unfortunate event in their lives. We helped Mrs. Sonia Perez at the picnic, and we also helped her deliver packages full of goodies like baby bottles, clothing, strollers, and car seats at Miami Children's Hospital to all the newborn and older babies that were there waiting or just few days after surgery. Then she would let their parents know about her wonderful non profit organization and how to belong to this special group of friends with beautiful kids with congenital heart defects. We feel very fortunate to have meet Sonia Perez and be able to help and make a difference in the life of this special group of parents who are, at the moment, in search of hope and somehow help them believe that their children will have a healthier and regular chilhood like any other kid. I just wish I had known of an organization, like hers, when my husband and I were going through those tense months waiting for our daughter's surgery and hoping for the best outcome for her. At least now I know that I can help.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the hospital visits I've made.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

nothing.
