The month of February is full of LOVE! Especially on the IG community with a very special project, that was started by Danielle Awwad as her four year old son was born with 10 different heart Defects. In 2016 she began The Paper Heart Project which is a campaign that spreads awareness about Congenital Heart Defects also called CHDs. Congenital Heart Defects are the most common type of birth defect. The severity of CHDs can range from mild to deadly. One out of 110 babies are born with Congenital Heart Defects yet it is one of the most underfunded and under researched childhood illnesses.
This was my second year participating in this amazing project. Doing arts and crafts with my daughter was actually very therapeutic. She didn't want to have her picture taken at first, but when I showed her a picture of Danielle's boy and explained why we were doing it, she instantly began asking me question after question about hearts and her son, and was very into pictures!! The last one is very special, she was hanging my valentine!
Here are a few from our project <3
