About Being a CHD Parent!

Hello there, I'm Drena. I am a blessed Wife, Momma, Congenital Heart Defect Momma Warrior, and freelance writer! Each day I strive to make a difference serving the Lord!

Dear Momma To Be!


Dear Momma To Be!

     Where should I start? If I could step back in time, I’d help prepare you, keep you from being blind. Dear Momma To Be. If I could hold your hand, I could keep you one step ahead from all the pain you’re about to endure. These months to come will be hard, mental bars, and physical scars. That tiny seed God planted needs to be clung to.

     Oh Dear Momma To Be. If we were face to face. I’d be there by your side, to help you fight the doubt within your heart. Dear Momma To Be. It’s not your fault. You were never meant to carry this pain and fear all alone. Every mountain, every obstacle will help lead you closer to who you’re meant to be. 

     So, Dear Momma To Be. As I stand before you. I can tell this journey will change you forever! The road you walk will sometimes be unpaved, the pain will at time be close to unbearable. But open your eyes….she that sweet blessing? That’s your reminder.  I wouldn’t go back and change a thing. God gave you super powers, that have grown over the years! That sweet little blessing you hold is your reminder! God made that beauty and instilled in you super hero qualities……You are a CHD Momma! Welcome!!!!

Blessings Until Next Time!
