I'd like to ask all my sweet friends, family, and blog readers to join me in my heart campaign this week. You may remember me starting this a couple years ago when we were scheduling one of Steven Joseph's heart check-ups and thinking we'd be doing his open heart surgery during his 2nd year.
Well, here we are in September 2011, and our big guy is a few months shy of 4 years old and finally big enough and ready for this surgery, scheduled for this Thursday Sept 22nd. I know lots of you are praying and supporting us in so many ways, I am brought to tears hearing about prayers being offered from far and wide, fasting, rosaries being prayed by teens, etc.
My own heart feels like it's going to burst from all the love and all the pain and worry that it is holding right now. But I am trusting that God has a beautiful plan in mind for Steven and for our family, and that Mother Mary will be by my side, she who knows the pain of watching her Son suffer. Thank you so much for remembering our family and Steven Joseph and his almost-fixed heart, as well as others whose hearts are in need.
