Ugh.

This has been an exceptionally frustrating week in the world of congenital heart defects. Friend and fellow heart mom, Stefenie, recently posted about nine lives that have been lost this week to this cruel monster. NINE! Among those nine were two precious, tiny babies that I've been praying for since before their births.

Ewan passed away on Sunday night after fighting for so long and hard on ECMO (twice), and eventually contracting a bacterial infection. He was two weeks and one day old.

Joshua "received complete healing in the arms of Jesus" this morning. He was a little over seven weeks old.

It is SO wrong that either of these mothers should have to walk into a funeral home and pick out a casket for an infant. We need to do more, fight harder, and speak louder. The world needs to be aware of this beast that is taking lives left and right.

Until then, please head over to the blogs of these grieving mamas and leave them some love and warm thoughts.

Do it in honor of those who are still fighting, and in memory of the ones who have lost such a tragic battle.

It's been a tough week for sure and my heart is breaking for all of the families that have lost a child this week.

It's all so sad. The thing with Joshua really knocked the wind out of me today. I had to read her post a few times before I got what she was saying.
It's just too much.
