Hi all families touched by CHD and other significant life journies. Finally there has been a children’s picture book created to help support children with congenital heart defects. Written and illustrated by two heart kid mums, it is an excellent vehicle to promote discussion about emotions and challenges associated with feeling different, hospital procedures and family love.
“Patch the heart lion doesn’t think of himself as brave
or strong. He gets upset when he can’t keep up with everyone else.
But is he really as weak and scared as he thinks he is?
Find out just how brave and strong Patch really is!”
