One Heart Touching Another Heart

In our deepest moments of struggle, frustration, fear, and confusion, we are being called upon to reach in and touch our hearts. Then, we will know what to do, what to say, how to be. What is right is always in our deepest heart of hearts. It is from the deepest part of our hearts that we are capable of reaching out and touching another human being. It is, after all, one heart touching another heart. --Roberta Sage Hamilton

We have had several babies born recently ~ two precious ones became angels and others are on that roller coaster ride in the NICU. We have had two babes re-herniate and one is back home and one is continuing the fight. We have a few more expecting. I saw the quote above and thought of how fitting it was to congenital diaphragmatic hernia support for families. Those of us who have already walked the walk - our hearts are with them.

At least these families know they are not alone.
