A Giveaway to Help Baby Bentley

Crystal (Bentley's Mom) is having a giveaway to help spread the word on CHD (congenital heart defect) awareness.

Taken from Crystals blog. http://thewelshfam.blogspot.com/

Here are just a few CHD facts.. there are many more...

  • Congenital heart defects are the #1 birth defect. Nearly one of every 100 babies is born with a CHD.
  • Congenital heart defects are the #1 cause of birth defect related deaths.
  • Congenital heart defects are the leading cause of all infant deaths in the United States.
  • Each year approximately 40,000 babies are born in the United States with a congenital heart defect. thousands of them will not reach their first birthday and thousands more die before they reach adulthood.

She is giving away some super cute burp cloths. So go enter and help raise awareness for Bentley and other babies with CHD.

Thank you for sharing this. My third child was born with hypo-plastic left heart syndrome. He was missing the left ventricle of his heart. We only had him for 5 days. I miss him still. He would have turned 12 this summer.
