The grief and heartbreak of saying goodbye to our daughter is a heavy burden and our lives will never be the same. Her physical heart was broken and our hearts broke along with it. And we know we are not alone in this journey.
Karalyn's heart defect was one of many congenital heart defects that occur in 1 in 110 babies born. We have found a way to reach out and comfort those who are walking this very difficult road-whether it be as a bereaved heart parent or a heart parent fighting alongside their heart warrior.
Our daughter, Karalyn Elise, was born on July 21, 2013. She had Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome and an Intact Atrial Septum along with Turner Syndrome. Her lungs were just not ready to support her when she was born at 31 weeks and 2 days, just five days after having heart surgery in the womb. She fought hard but went to be with Jesus an hour after birth.
