Blessherheart.org was created in loving memory of our daughter, Taryn.

Taryn was born 12/11/08. She was beautiful and perfect in every way. Taryn coded at home and was Careflighted to a local children's hospital. Taryn's heart defects (TAPVR and ASD) were discovered when she was 27 days old and Taryn passed away when she was 29 days old.

This blog captures experiences of our journey, and allows readers to share their experiences with CHDs.

December: Tribute for Taryn's 1st Birthday

Taryn, last time this year we laid our tear-filled eyes on your beautiful face for the first time. We miss you so much baby girl! We are trying to find some comfort in the fact that you have reached the ultimate goal and you are at peace (which we could not guarantee you if you were here).

You are always in our thoughts, prayers, and in our hearts. We feel your presence in everything perfect and beautiful. Thank you for showing us the true meaning of life and allowing us to experience unconditional love.

We do our best because we know that you are watching.
With all our love....Happy Birthday!

Mommy and Daddy
