This is Natalia!
She was born a month early and right after delivery, three doctors came into the room and said she had a large hole in her heart, the largest that is possible called a Ventricle septal defect, and she would need open heart surgery to survive.
She was in heart failure, had blue tint to her lips, skin, fingernails, poor weight gain, poor feeding and fast breathing. At 3 months she had her first open heart surgery, they patched her VSD and tore her aortic valve. She needed another surgery on her third birthday to fix the leak in her aortic valve. She is now 17!
She is a pleasant, eager to please girl, who adores her 2 dogs Sophie ( Golden Retriever) and Ella (Shitzu/Bichon ), her mom, brothers and of course her dad! She loves to dance, read, play putt-putt and be silly.
She loves Austin Moon from Austin and Ally. She enjoys playing with her barbies, enjoys going to the park and loves going to church on Sunday!
