A CHD blog link-up

blog linky


So to celebrate International Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week (7 – 14 February 2014) I thought it’d be great to co-ordinate a CHD blog link-up right here on Dear Albie. Whether you have a heart child, a heart angel, or are an adult living with a CHD, it is mighty nice to know you’re not in this alone. This is just one way we can make connections between our stories and raise awareness too.

If you are new to Dear Albie because of this linkup, Welcome! Thanks for dropping by! One of the most enriching and rewarding parts of writing this blog, has been the many connections that we have made with other heart families, both here in New Zealand, and around the globe.

Don’t forget to share this blog post on your blog too, or in your heart facebook groups, and lets get a massive CHD blog link-up a happening! 

Click on the hyperlink beside the blue frog below to add your link to the collection and/or to view the others. (I’m not sure why it is opening in a separate page at the moment – but will figure this out shortly hopefully…)

If you don’t have a CHD blog, but have a facebook page, or a youtube video that you’d like to share instead, feel free to write a short descriptor of it, and supply the link in the comments section below, and we can share stories that way too.

Cool – let’s linkup!

xx Sarah
