Today was one of those days where I hold on to hope, a lot of it. As Zoe is growing - walking, talking, laughing and enjoying life - I always have that dreaded question in the back of my mind, "how will I live without her?" It's a morbid thought, but a harsh reality I've seen so many families face since Zoe entered our lives. Many times I find myself just staring at her, watching her live and breathe.
Today was one of those days that I stood in awe of my 18 month old daughter. She's given hope to families who didn't think it possible; she's taught me how to live better - and bigger; she's inspired hundreds to appreciate each day; she's given me an incredible family whom I never would've known.
Tonight, I watched a preview from an upcoming documentary. And cried. And cried some more.
Families with children born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome all have one thing in common. Hope. We live and breathe Hope. Most days, it's all we've got.
If any one person solidifies hope for our family, it's Jeni Busta.
Watch a preview from Jeni's upcoming documentary. Be inspired.
8 Months Old!
