Dear Parents of children with heart defects,
I am a mother that understands.
I pour my love and energy into being someone you can trust.
Because I want to be your friend.
If you're hurting, I dont want you to feel alone.
I do not play doctor and preach medical advice.
But I do seize every opportunity to educate and empower another parent if it strengthens their role as patient advocate.
I feel effortless empathy towards parents expressing dissatisfaction or concerns in the care because this is the road I walked and relate to...its now my personal passion...to help improve care.

It hurts to have the integrity of your character questioned. But I'm a strong bitch and I can take it. I'm going to stay connected to families because I am helping people.
