Winston and family.

Winston’s Heart Journey

Our heart journey began with our 22-week ultrasound, which had to be redone several times—Winston was always in the wrong position, and they couldn’t get a clear reading of his heart.

Mirella’s Heart Journey

When I was born, my mother was advised by the pediatrician who helped deliver me that there was a subtle noise on my heart known as a heart murmur. The doctors monitored my heart regularly over the next few years.

Our Heart Story

Having children and a family of our own was a dream and huge priority for my husband and me. Unfortunately, we dealt with fertility issues for many years, and our first son, Quinn, was conceived via in vitro fertilization. Finally, a beautiful boy that we considered our miracle.
