For the past several years, #smallbeats has provided support to families of children with #CongenitalHeart defects. We have loved getting to know these families, and welcoming them in as members of our family.

We have decided that the time has come to wrap up the smallbeats blog. But we are not going anywhere—we will always be there to provide support to heart kids and their families.

And we’re also not going anywhere without saying goodbye. Please enjoy a few words from your smallbeats writers, Barb Roessner and Dr. Sean Akers: http://smallbeats.childrensomaha.org/heart-kids-families-goodbye-smallbeats/
