National Believe Day 2014

Once again, it's National Believe Day, where all letters to Santa dropped off at Macy's raises $2 for Make-A-Wish.  Every year, this event gets bigger and bigger and I couldn't be more happy. Make-A-Wish is truly an amazing organization that can use all of the help it can get.

Three years ago on National Believe Day, we were preparing for the Dancing Queen's wish trip.  Her trip was magical, even though emotionally draining. I will have memories forever. The granting of DQ's wish brought joy and excitement like we've never seen before and made this life easier. It was more than a vacation. It was truly a wish fulfilled.

While DQ no longer believes in magic and she knows Santa is not a real person, she still believes. On this National Believe Day, I hope you will drop your letter to Santa at Macy's and give another family a smile that will last through all the horrors of childhood illness.

Having a child with a CHD is like being given an extra sense---the true ability to appreciate life. Each breath, each hug, each meal is a blessing when you've watched your child live off a ventilator, trapped in an ICU bed, being fed through a tube. Each minute is a miracle when you've watched your child almost die and come back to you.
