God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

TV Interview on CHDs

Since becoming a heart Mom I have felt led to try to do my part to raise awareness about congenital heart defects to the general public. After all, I didn't know ANYTHING about congenital heart defects until we received Anna Grace's diagnosis in-utero.

So... as many of you know... Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week is THIS WEEK (Feb 7-14). I have been trying for the last few weeks to contact our local media to try to get some local press coverage about Congenital Heart Defects. After many unreturned voicemails and e-mails I was a tad bit discouraged.

So, I talked about my frusterations with my hubby. He took it upon himself to contact one of our neighbors who happens to work for a local tv station here in town. Our neighbor gave us the contact e-mail for someone at the station that might be interested in our story. We e-mailed that person a short e-mail about our story. That night, my husband and I prayed specifically for the Lord to open a door there.

The next morning I had an e-mail in my inbox inviting us to be guests THIS THURSDAY (Feb 10) on the local morning show in our area. So - please watch Channel 7 at 10:00 am this Thursday. The show is an hour long and we are not the only guests so I think we will probably have about 5 minutes of time during our segment to tell our story and talk about congenital heart defects.

I want to stop right here and give glory to God for this answered prayer. I am truly thankful for this opportunity He has given us.

I have called Anna Grace's cardiologist to get the most up-to-date statistics on congenital heart defects to share. I really want to do my best to represent our heart community as best I can AND be faithful to share how the Lord has carried us through this heart journey. Please be praying fos us Thursday morning. I have never been on tv before and I am nervous about it.

Whew... big week for us!

That is amazing! That is so wonderful you will be able so share your story and open up eyes about CHD. I never really knew about it before I had Alyson.

Good luck to you with the show! Post it on here if they put them online or email me the link. I think you still have my email. I will have to do better in doing my part for CHD Awareness. I don't think I would have thought about doing a news segment....?

Yay! Yay! Yay! Good for you for getting out there, Tina! Definitely post a link after your segment airs. We won't see it here in Columbia.

I STILL have your email about the breakfast...I'm such a slacker! I'll email you soon.

Good luck on Thursday!
