As we celebrate our wedding, we are grateful to all of you for wanting to give gifts, but since we're happy, healthy and want for nothing, we appreciate you considering making a donation to a place and cause very near and dear to our hearts.
Most of you know Lauren was born with congenital heart disease (CHD). Having a common atrium required a lot of work before she turned 3, with her last surgery taking place when she was 8, just like Molly is this year. All surgeries happened (and care continues today) at Children's National Medical Center, and I wouldn't be here today if it were not for that "magical place"! 2015 is a huge year for Lauren as she will wed and celebrate 30 years post-op!
Please consider Children's National's Heart Institute instead of anything for us or for our home. Do it for the kids, like Lauren!
