Heart House: A Home for heart families
Our family began when Mike and I married in 2010. We welcomed our first baby girl, Lucy, in 2014. Our second daughter, Emma, arrived in 2017. We were blessed one last time in March of 2019 when we learned we were pregnant with identical twin girls. 4 girls! We were in disbelief and so excited.
However, our lives took a heartbreaking turn during my pregnancy. At my 20 week ultrasound, we discovered that one of the twins had severe congenital heart disease. Over the course of the next month, we learned that there was no real hope for her long-term survival. We made the difficult decision not to intervene with our baby’s life after she was born, believing that keeping her alive for 6 months on a ventilator was not the right choice for her.
