A friend gave me this cross before my infant underwent open heart surgery. My Molly was born with a surprise diagnosis of Down Syndrome after I had endured an emotional pregnancy filled with illnesses and family deaths. It was a shock when she not only had this chromosomal defect, but also a heart defect. Molly had her surgery just before she turned 6 months and spent her first Fourth of July in the hospital recovering. She has proven to be quite a fighter and came out of that event with flying colors! She is our sunshine every single day and we are so very grateful that God chose us to raise her!
