Last week I spoke about Lu's story with Susan Jenks, from our local newspaper, Florida Today, and it was published in today's paper. There is also a short video interview on Florida Today's website. You can see the entire story online HERE and the video HERE.

We are also trying to raise awareness by promoting Congential Awareness Week/Month. The month of February is CHD Awareness Month and Feb. 7th through the 14th is CHD Awareness Week. I am holding a Facebook "event" with the goal of spreading vital information about CHDs.
During CHD Awareness Week, I will posting facts, videos, photos, stories, etc. on my Facebook wall, in hopes that people will follow my posts and share them on their walls, and ask their friends to share as well. It would make a huge difference in the amount of people who are aware of CHDs and could help several children in the future if everyone could get involved. Please share this event, invite your friends, and encourage them to do the same.
Matt is also designing a logo that we will ask people to post as their Facebook profile picture for that week.
Here is the link to event:

In other news, Lu is doing awesome. She turns 7 months old on Feb. 6th and weighs about 15 lbs. She is eating so well and LOVES spoon feeding. She is sitting up extremely well on her own and is rolling around all over the place. She also stands while supporting herself on a table, or our dog, Sierra. She loves to read and beat on her drum while "singing" and laughing. She also loves the bath, which she has been having in the kitchen sink lately.
