    Hello everyone!

    My name is Laura, living in Austin, TX, and am pregnant with my first child (28 weeks).  At our 20 week ultrasound, our doctor discovered that our sweet boy has a CHD. We met with a pediatric cardiologist and received the diagnosis of Hypoplastic Right Heart Syndrome.  It's been a tough few months since we found out, but we're very thankful for the great doctors we have so far as well as the support we've received from family and friends.  Looking through posts on this forum has helped me so much, especially when I first found out. Thank you so much to everyone for sharing your stories. <3

    Hi Laura!
    I’m so glad this group has helped you. I am 37 years old, I was born with HRHS (Tricuspid Atresia) in 1983. I’m now married with two kids and volunteer for Mended Little Hearts. :) The Regional Director for MLH in Texas has a teenage son with HRHS as well. You are welcome to email me personally any time, and I’d be happy to introduce you to her.
    xoxo- Nicole
