It's been 2 years....

... since this little boy had his heart repaired. August 6th, 2009.

Let's just say heart surgery is something that often comes with the territory when speaking of Down syndrome. But it's never easy to hand over your tiny child, hoping and praying he'll be okay when you see him again.

Our boy may have a 5 inch scar going down his chest but he is a healthy, happy 2 year old.

We are so very thankful for the wonderful people at CHOP that took care of him.

And we will forever be thankful to the Lord for giving Bennett to us and for answering our prayers.

Happy Heart Day precious boy! Our hearts overflow with love for you!!
