I met Kristine, Cora’s mother on twitter in the wake of the most tragic event of her life. She had lost her daughter, only a few days old to a undetected congenital heart defect.
Over the next year, we talked, became friends, and finally met during the 2010 BlogHer conference where all I could do was give her a giant hug. We still talk weekly, and when we found out we were having a little girl, Kristine offered some of Cora’s belongings to pass along. I was touched.
Monday I got a package from Kristine, with this in it.
Our little girl will not only keep the memory of Cora alive, but help save more lives.
Remember, February is Congenital Heart Defect awareness month.
