Everyone wants to feel normal. To have a sense of belonging and community. To participate in the same activities and have shared experiences with others. For the 40,000 kids born with heart conditions every year, finding others who can relate to testing, risky procedures, even open-heart surgery—sometimes more than once—can be difficult. For their families, watching a loved one struggle with the physical and emotional scars of being different while trying to make sure they’re safe and cared for presents its own unique challenges.
