Featured Book

Heart of a Mother The Heart of a Mother

Edited by Anna Marie Jaworski

Foreword by Edward L. Bove, M.D.

Perhaps our most famous book is The Heart of a Mother. Why is it so popular? Because the book features many women that the editor, Anna Jaworski, met right here on the Internet! Dive into this incredible collection of stories by over 60 inspirational women who have dealt with CHDs and shared their amazing stories with us.

This book is a must read for anyone involved with families living with CHDs. Discover how women feel from the point of discovery of the CHD, through the surgeries often needed, to how they find and give support to others and their family and on to their hopes for the future.

Have you ever wondered how a girl born with a CHD feels about having a child of her own? If children with CHDs can lead a normal life? How having a child with a CHD will change your life? Wonder no longer. This book answers those questions and more.
