What was it like to give birth to a baby with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) in the 1990s? How would it feel like to watch that miracle child grow up to become a mother herself? What is it like to then see your daughter's daughter for the first time? Answers to those questions and many more will be answered in this Mother's Day Special Heart to Heart with Anna episode. 

Meg Didier is a 30-year-old hHLHS survivor and a mother. After we finished recording her episode, “HLHS Survivor and Mother” earlier this year, I said it would be so wonderful to have her back on the show with her own mother for May 2023, especially in celebration of Mothers’ Day and she agreed.

Patty Hansen and I “met” online over two decades ago, when the Internet was young. We met via a listserv and shared inspiring stories about our heart warriors, questions we had, and shared concerns. We prayed for one another, gave helpful advice, and encouraged one another. When I decided to put together an anthology of stories by women around the world affected by congenital heart defects, Patty contributed an essay entitled ‘Finding the Good,’ which you can read starting on page 179 of “The Heart of a Mother.” This is my first time to actually speak with Patty!
