Dear Friends, Take a few moments to close your eyes and relive the exhilaration of giving birth to a healthy baby. Recount your relief when hearing the baby’s ﬁrst strong cries. Remember those joyous moments of counting ﬁngers and toes. What simcha, what elation. Now try to visualize the fear and panic of parents when all does not go well. The tense moments of waiting to hold their baby for the very ﬁrst time, only to be told that their newborn was whisked oﬀ to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit… The aching feeling of coming home empty handed while baby is being cared for by strangers… The endless hours of noting every breath, every heartbeat, every tick of the monitors… The overwhelming feeling of caring for a family at home while shuttling to the hospital back and forth… The shattered illusions of a dream lost… All hopes, all plans put on hold… The confusion of medical terminology… The questions… Whom should they ask? Whom should they trust? Unfortunately, all this and much more are true for parents of a child born with a congenital heart defect, a malformation of the hearts structure that is present at birth. Defects can range from minor, such as holes in the heart, to severe, as abnormalities of the valves, vessels, and heart chambers. The staggering statistic: In the United States, a child is born with a heart defect every 15 minutes, that makes it one in every 120 babies. CHD is the most common birth defect in the world. Yameitz Libechu or known as YL Hearts is the “Premier Organization for Children and Adults with Congenital Heart Defects.” Founded in 2003, Yameitz Libechu began because of one mother’s desperation. Lost in the tangled web of medical jargon, emotional turmoil and societal pressures, an idea was born. “Never should another mother need to carry this diﬃcult burden alone!!” Whether before birth or soon thereafter, from the moment a baby is diagnosed with a congenital heart defect, YL Hearts steps in to provide guidance, support, and direction. By literally holding the parents hands as they go through the emotional turmoil of a challenge of this magnitude, we help them navigate the complexity of pediatric cardiology. Yameitz Libechu oﬀers many support events throughout the year for fathers, mothers, and the family. By sharing and meeting at events, the families gain much chizuk from seeing the miracle babies grown up. This allows the families the opportunity to see beyond the present medical condition and gives them much hope that they too will see much nachas from this child. As one mother so aptly put it “without Yameitz Libechu two hearts would have been shattered.” Will you join us as we help them go through life’s “Seasons with Heart”? Perhaps, hand in hand, we can ease the fear of the unknown and enlighten families facing this burden alone.
